A hamstring injury has forced Broncos utility Corey Oates to pull out of the Queensland Under 20s team’s annual State of Origin clash with NSW at Penrith on Saturday.
Fellow Bronco Brett Greinke fills the vacancy in the back-row after being elevated from the bench while another Brisbane junior forward Ajuma Adams comes into the 17.
