Kaufusi earns Queensland call up
Felise Kaufusi has been named 18th man for Queensland in the Origin decider.
Kaufusi will play for Storm against the Eels on Saturday night before joining his six Storm teammates in Maroons camp.
The 25-year-old has been a revelation for Craig Bellamy this season, playing every game in the second row and scoring seven tries.
Kaufusi is the seventh Melbourne player to be named in Queensland’s 18-man squad that already includes Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Will Chambers, Tim Glasby, Cooper Cronk and Cameron Munster.
It is the second time Kaufusi has been called into Origin camp after also being named 18th man for last year's series decider.
Game III will be played next Wednesday night at Suncorp Stadium.
