New South Wales is hoping to avoid a third consecutive series defeat as Queensland looks to pile on the misery in the 2022 women’s State of Origin clash.

The Maroons stole the chocolates last year in a nailbiting 8-6 victory and continued the theme of close margins between the two sides.

Since the inception of women’s State of Origin in 2018, neither side has won by more than 10 points across the four clashes played.

Sky Blues coach Kylie Hilder will hope that the inclusion of Dally M medal winner Emma Tonegato will spur the side on to victory.

The match will also be Tonegato’s Origin debut, but she isn’t the sole debutant in Hilder’s squad with Olivia Kernick and Caitlan Johnston set to make their first appearances for the Sky Blues from the bench.

The debutant theme continues to the Maroons, with coach Tahnee Norris naming winger Emily Bass and centre Evania Pelite in the starting side.

Tonegato, Bass and Pelite are all recent crossovers into the sport after making the switch from rugby sevens in recent times.
