Corey Parker will also be back, after recovering from a fractured eye socket.

Fox Sport reports, Will Chambers has been called up to finally make his Origin debut on the wing in place of Brent Tate.

Jacob Lillyman has earned a starting berth in the front row with Matt Scott to miss the game after suffering a facial fracture in Origin Two.

Titans big man Dave Taylor has kept his spot on the bench with Josh Papalii axed from the squad.

In a look to the future Michael Morgan, who has been in scintillating form for the Cowboys, has been included as 19th man.

In a feat to match the return of Cronk, the Blues have named Josh Morris.

The Bulldogs star pulled off an heroic effort in Game One, playing through a knee injury to help his side win and stop the Maroons crossing the line.

He will return in place of the injured Michael Jennings while James McManus and Boyd Cordner will pull on a Blues jumper for the first time this year.
