I thought Papilii’s game was huge last night. To run out for the first time in prop and top the metres gained and post contact metres out of any forward, I thought was huge. His first spell was incredible and really set it up for the maroons. Held the middle strongly with Arrow and was always bending the line.

I also keep forgetting how young Papilii is, technically he is just hitting his prime age. He is our best signing all year and I hope he got his $800k a year. Well and truly worth every cent!

FULL TIME

New South Wales 28

One of the best try saving tackles you'll ever see from Xavier Savage, by the way. He's got some pace.

Canberra Raiders Josh Papalii selected in 2018 Kangaroos Origin Merit Team

Australian selectors have confirmed the Kangaroos Origin Merit Team based on performances through the Holden State of Origin series.

The second Kangaroos Origin Merit Team includes 12 players from the series victors NSW and five from Queensland.

"Once again, this is an important step for the national team to make, based on the pathway from state through to international level," Australian Coach Mal Meninga said.

"We named our first Kangaroos Origin Merit Team last year and there have been a significant number of changes based on performances through this year's Origin series.

"There were some outstanding individual displays over the course of the series and it was a very challenging job to select a team based on those personal and team performances as well as individual values.

"Clearly over the course of the series NSW was the dominant team and they deserved to have a high representation in the Merit Team."

Meninga said that ultimately form in the State of Origin series would be one of a number of criteria the selectors will take into account before settling on a squad for the end-of-season schedule.

Meninga said the selectors would be looking at past recent performances for the Kangaroos, overall form, Club success, form in the Finals Series, form in the State of Origin series as well as values and bevaviour.

"The Kangaroos Origin Merit Team is an important recognition of the Origin players and their form through the series," Meninga said.

"Form in the Origin series is one of a number of factors the selectors take into account ahead of Kangaroos selection, although it is clearly an important one."

To be selected in the Kangaroos Origin Merit Team a player must have played two out of the three matches in the series. Players could be selected out of the positions they played in during the series.

The 2018 Kangaroos Origin Merit Team is:

Fullback Billy Slater Queensland Melbourne Storm
Wing Tom Trbojevic NSW Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
Centre Greg Inglis Queensland South Sydney Rabbitohs
Centre Latrell Mitchell NSW Sydney Roosters
Wing Josh Addo-Carr NSW Melbourne Storm
Five-Eighth Cameron Munster Queensland Melbourne Storm
Halfback James Maloney NSW Penrith Panthers
Prop David Klemmer NSW Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Hooker Damien Cook NSW South Sydney Rabbitohs
Prop Josh McGuire Queensland Brisbane Broncos
Second Row Boyd Cordner NSW Sydney Roosters
Second Row Tyson Frizell NSW St George Illawarra Dragons
Lock Jake Trbojevic NSW Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
Interchange James Tedesco NSW Sydney Roosters
Interchange Jack de Belin NSW St George Illawarra Dragons
Interchange Josh Papalii Queensland Canberra Raiders
Interchange Paul Vaughan NSW St George Illawarra Dragons
