Queensland will be after revenge after their winning streak was broken last year. NSW finally got its hands on the Origin shield after winning Games I and II.
It ended a long period of Maroon dominance. But NSW are up against it this year.
Injury and suspension has ruled out Greg Bird and Paul Gallen. Jarryd Hayne is off trying to crack the NFL.
NSW has named two debutants in Bulldogs enforcers David Klemmer and Josh Jackson. It has picked Robbie Farah as captain and decided to select two halfbacks, instead of a 7 and a five-eighth.
Queensland has been much more conservative. It has made few changes from 2014.
Cameron Smith will again lead the team and the only new face is Michael Morgan. The Cowboys half comes in to replace the injury Daly Cherry-Evans.
