The pair are yet to make their Origin debuts, but have been involved in Queensland’s Origin and representative programs.
Kalyn Ponga has been omitted from the initial 15-man squad due to a shoulder injury, meaning the additions of Friend and Collins take the squad to 16.
More players will be added as their teams are eliminated from the post-season, with Queensland selectors to confirm a squad of 27 players after the NRL grand final on October 25.
