State of Origin 1 is just a week away, and that means for the NRL competition, crazy season is here.
And with 17 teams, byes every week and more games over the Origin period, more players than at any point in the last 15 years will be forced to miss games as they await their chance to represent New South Wales and Queensland.
With teams confirmed for Origin 1 on Monday, and squads for Round 13 fixtures being named on Tuesday afternoon, here is how every team playing this weekend is replacing their Origin stars.
Origin players: Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Tom Gilbert
The Dolphins have two players to replace. At fullback to replace Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, they will play Kodi Nikorima, who last week turned out at five-eighth.
That brings Anthony Milford into the halves alongside Isaiya Katoa after he played from the bench last week, while Gilbert's number 13 jersey is taken by Ray Stone, who came from the bench in last week's loss to the Storm. Felise Kaufusi would have been picked too if not for suspension, with Kenneath Bromwich moving from prop to second-row, and Herman Ese'ese moving from the bench to the front-row.
St George Illawarra Dragons
Origin players: Ben Hunt
There is only one Origin out for the Dragons, with Ben Hunt to be replaced in the halves by Jayden Sullivan, whose bench spot is taken by a returning Moses Mbye after he was dropped for the famous win over the Roosters last Friday at Kogarah.
Origin players: Junior Paulo
The Eels only lose one player to Origin in the shape of Junior Paulo. Fresh off his confirmed move from Tiger Town to the Eels, Joe Ofahengaue will play his first game for the blue and gold replacing the Origin-bound Paulo.
North Queensland Cowboys
Origin players: Valentine Holmes, Murray Taulagi, Reuben Cotter, Thomas Dearden
The Cowboys are hit hard by Origin despite their spot towards the bottom of the table without four players in Queensland's 18.
In the halves, Ben Hampton comes straight in at five-eighth to replace Tom Dearden, while Jake Granville will start at lock in place of Reuben Cotter after playing from the bench last week. With Mitch Dunn dropped as well, the two spots on the bench are taken by Jamayne Taunoa-Brown and Griffin Neame.
New Zealand Warriors
Origin players: None
The Warriors have no players selected for Origin 1 and will be full strength against the Broncos.
Origin players: Reece Walsh, Selwyn Cobbo, Thomas Flegler, Patrick Carrigan, Payne Haas
The Broncos are the hardest-hit by State of Origin with five players - including their big three in the middle third - selected for Game 1.
In the forwards, the Gold Coast Titans-bound Keenan Palasia comes in from obscurity to start at prop, while Corey Jensen and Kobe Hetherington will play prop and lock respectively after featuring from the bench last week.
South Sydney Rabbitohs
Origin players: Jai Arrow, Latrell Mitchell, Cameron Murray
Three big outs through Origin for the Rabbitohs, with Jai Arrow, Latrell Mitchell and Cameron Murray all to be missing from their usual starting positions ahead of a game against the Raiders.
Manly Sea Eagles
Origin players: Daly Cherry-Evans, Tom Trbojevic
Kaeo Weekes and Cooper Johns move into Manly's 17 for the game against Newcastle in a pair of like for like swaps to replace Daly Cherry-Evans and Tom Trbojevic.
