NSW coach Brad Fittler is adamant his team can repeat their game-two clampdown on Queensland's new-look attack in the State of Origin decider.

Fittler is expecting a different look from the Maroons in game three after the injury withdrawal of star fullback Kalyn Ponga.

Ponga's absence has forced Queensland to move Cameron Munster to fullback and hand Corey Norman his Origin debut at five-eighth.

"(Queensland will) definitely be different. The way Corey Norman ... not many people play like him. He's just got a style of his own," Fittler said.

"So the blokes playing week in, week out, will have had a good look at him. I'm pretty confident we can shut it down."

The pair have struck up a strong chemistry at the Dragons, with Norman setting up 11 tries and making just as many line breaks.

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.

Fittler concedes the Norman factor presents a new challenge for his defence, which had limited the Maroons to a penalty try in Perth. "[Queensland will] definitely be different. The way Corey Norman not many people play like him. He's just got a style of his own ," Fittler said.

Hunt has 12 try assists and 13 line-break assists.

With two more training sessions until game day, Fittler is confident his side will be adequately prepared for whatever Queensland throw at them at ANZ Stadium.

"(The players) do a lot of research on these fellas, week in, week out. They know a lot of their mannerisms and habits and traits they go back to," Fittler said.

"We obviously go through their team and look at what we think can happen.

"But I'm very confident in what we're doing in our training sessions can stop what they want to throw at us."

The Blues have a new spine of their own after the dramatic recall of veteran playmaker Mitchell Pearce in place of the injured Nathan Cleary.

The former NSW No.7 had just two sessions with the team before the squad broke camp for the weekend.

Fittler is hoping Pearce's familiarity with a number of current Newcastle teammates, and former Sydney Roosters players, can hasten their preparation.

Munster firms as Qld No.1 for Origin III

Munster firms as Qld No.1 for Origin III Cameron Munster is firming as Queensland's new fullback for next week's State of Origin series decider in Sydney against NSW.

Fittler unveiled his team to take on the Maroons on June 6 during the True Blues black-tie function at The Star in Sydney on Monday night Roosters playmaker Luke Keary was the unluckiest player to miss out, with James Maloney only locking in his spot in the side after Penrith’s win over the Dragons

“Brad Fittler has a ‘no dickheads’ policy,” he told his offsider, HG Nelson, on Triple M. “Only dickheads win State of Origin. In the very first minute of the Blues’ very first team meeting earlier this week, the normally chilled Fittler told his players in Cyclone Gus-like fashion what he expected of them.

Pearce and five-eighth James Maloney won a grand final together in 2013 at the Roosters, and featured in two Origin series in 2013 and 2017.

"It's more the fact that him and James Maloney work together," Fittler said.

"That's the key. Fact is they've played grand finals together and a lot of big games together. So that will be a help, unbelievably, going into a big game.

"They just know each other's voice. They know people around them."

'It feels a bit surreal': Pearce is finally on the right side of Origin history.
This 80 minutes was meant to inform us about Mitchell Pearce in a way that 268 NRL appearances and 18 previous State of Origin matches never could. That somehow all that he has and will achieve will be seen through the prism of this one performance and somehow put it all into its proper perspective. Of course, it doesn’t work like that. The result, aside from determining where the shield went, would also determine what we made of Pearce. You can’t get a 20th call-up unless the ledger is at least partly redressed. The Newcastle captain’s record still makes his state wince but at least it registers a series win.
