Massive blow for the Maroons as star player Kalyn Ponga is ruled OUT of Origin decider after straining his calf

Massive blow for the Maroons as star player Kalyn Ponga is ruled OUT of Origin decider after straining his calf Kalyn Ponga was named to play in Newcastle Knight's match against Brisbane yesterday and in the State Of Origin series decider on July 10 but was sat out yesterday - and won't play for two weeks.

The one Maroons move that has left Gus 'fearful'© AAP Gould says he hopes Queensland doesn't play Munster at the fullback position in Ponga's absence NSW Origin icon Phil Gould has admitted that he is fearful of Queensland playing Cameron Munster in the fullback role in the absence of injured star Kalyn Ponga in the decider.

Ponga’s calf injury sent shockwaves through the Maroons camp and he was the glaring omission in Kevin Walters’ squad announcement for Origin III.

In the Knights star’s absence, Walters has handed an Origin debut to Dragons star Corey Norman who is versatile enough to play in both the fullback and the halfback role.

However, according to Gould, playing Norman at fullback over Munster would play right into the Blues’ hands.

The one Maroons move that has left Gus ' fearful '. Despite the Blues' Origin II win, there is a potential Maroons tactic that has left legendary coach Phil Gould frightened. By Chris De Silva.

“I’m fearful that they play Munster at fullback,” Gould told 100% Footy.

“I think that’s their best option and I think he can be extremely dangerous for them.

“I’m really fearful that Munster plays back there because he’s the sort of kid that’ll think he can win it from there.

“He’ll think he can get his hands on the ball more often. He’ll have a license to go anywhere on the field and he will feel that he can be the difference between the two sides.

“That’s dangerous. You don’t like playing against those sorts of people.”

By moving Munster to the fullback role, Norman would be shifted into the halfback position, and Gould also advocated pushing veteran Michael Morgan to the bench due to his versatility.

“I don’t see Morgan as a centre. I can see (Moses) Mbye going there,” he said.

“I don’t think Morgan’s in that great form. You can play Morgan from the bench, he’s come from the bench previously and gone in at lock-forward and made an extra playmaker role around the middle there.”

Former Blues skipper Paul Gallen questioned Walters’ decision to drop Origin veteran Dylan Napa, and echoed Gould’s statements surrounding the fullback position.

“I would have gone Munster to fullback, he’s played there before, Morgan to five-eighth, Kyle Feldt on the wing and move Dane Gagai into the centres,” Gallen told 100% Footy.

“I think that’s a much stronger team and gives you a kick option out on the wing with Kyle Feldt also.

“I’m glad they haven’t picked that team. I think they probably will play (Corey) Norman fullback.

State of Origin: ‘I’ll be back next year’, vows Queensland coach Kevin Walters

State of Origin: ‘I’ll be back next year’, vows Queensland coach Kevin Walters Walters is among the candidates to take over at the Titans next season and has made no secret of his desire to be an NRL head coach.

NSW Origin icon Phil Gould has admitted that he is fearful of Queensland playing Cameron Munster in the fullback role in the absence of injured star Kalyn Ponga’s calf injury sent shockwaves through the Maroons camp and he was the glaring omission in Kevin Walters’ squad announcement for Origin III.

In just a few short weeks, James has made an unbelievable comeback with his single 'Say You Won't Let Go'. Following two years away from the spotlight, the 2012 winner of 'X Factor' has held the # 1 spot on the official charts for several weeks in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Sweden.

“I’m surprised they left Dylan Napa out of the side. I think Dylan Napa in Game One really led their line speed, particularly in that second half, he got their team on the front foot.”

While Brad Fittler’s side heads to ANZ Stadium full of momentum after its 38-6 win in Origin II, it is looking to win its first decider in Sydney in almost two decades.

Heading into a match that he described as “a different beast” Gould warned the Blues of heading into the match with a complacent mindset.

“Remember this too: there have been 19 Origin deciders throughout Origin history, NSW has won four,” he said.

“Queensland have won 13 and there have been two draws. We haven’t won a decider in 14 years.

“We haven’t won a decider in Sydney since 2004. It’s a different beast and they’re better at it than we are. They’ve won the last seven on the trot.

“They know what they’re doing in this environment. If our blokes go into this game in the same headspace that Queensland went into Game Two, that result can flip around really quickly.

“This is mental battle as much as it is a physical battle, particularly if they’re going to wait a week to see if (Nathan) Cleary is right.”
