"This is the best side. No changes needed to be made".
That was QLD Origin coach Mal Meninga at todays announcement of the Maroons team for Origin Game Two - on in Sydney next Wednesday.
The side remains unchanged from game one, the only difference coming outside of the 17; Brisbane Bronco Corey Parker being called in as 18th man.
He replaces Game One's Daly Cherry-Evans. When asked about it, Meninga said it was to cover for the possible loss of prop forward Matt Scott, who may sit out the game while he attends to a family illness.
In that case, the likely plan would see Nate Myles move from the second row in the front and Corey Parker start in the run on side.
