New addition to the Maroons squad

Kurt Capewell has joined the Queensland Maroons camp in Perth ahead of Sunday’s historic State of Origin clash at Optus Stadium.

The Cronulla Sharks back-rower was part of the Queensland squad throughout Game I preparations in Brisbane, gaining valuable insight and experience into Maroons camp life.

The former Ipswich Jet now gets another opportunity as part of the 20-man squad after Edrick Lee was unable to make the trip to Western Australia due to injury.

Queensland will hold its first first session at HBF Park this afternoon with thousands of Maroons fans expected at the venue for the open session, which doubles as a Fan Day.
