during the NRL trial match between the New Zealand Warriors and the Melbourne Storm at Rotorua International Stadium on February 17, 2018 in Rotorua, New Zealand.

The Queensland Residents side to play New South Wales next Sunday has been named, as the rep clash once again serves as a curtain raiser ahead of Game Two of the State of Origin series.

The fixture will take place next Sunday at ANZ Stadium.

Burleigh and Easts both have three players each named in the clash Bears teammates Jamal Fogarty and Patrick Politoni named at halfback and hooker respectively.

Scott Drinkwater (fullback) and Billy Walters (five-eighth) have also been named down the spine.

"The quality of the Intrust Super Cup has gone to another level," Buchanan told qrl.com.au.

"We're healthy in every position which made it extremely tough to pick a team. There were a number of other players who also deserved an opportunity, but unfortunately for them, we can only pick 18."

Last year, the Queensland Residents dominated their NSW counterparts, taking out a 36-6 win.
