On the eve of Paul Green's second Origin selection, reports by The Courier Mail are suggesting North Queensland forward Francis Molo and New Zealand Warriors fullback Reece Walsh will make their debuts for the Maroons in Origin II.
Green is set to be forced into making a number of changes from the side that fell to the Blues 50-6 in Townsville in Origin I given several injury concerns and an overall lacklustre showing in the series opener.
While it is unsure whether Walsh will be handed a place in the No.1 or off the pine, The Courier Mail's Peter Badel reports the former Broncos neophyte will run out for the Maroons at Suncorp Stadium.

Joining him in reportedly making their representative debuts on Sunday is Cowboys prop Molo.
The North Queensland forward played a total of 44 matches under Green during their time together in Townsville.
Molo has played 13 games for the Cowboys in 2021 and has shown great promise under Todd Payten this season.
