Queensland were blown out during the first two games of the 2021 State of Origin series, despite ultimately hosting all three games.
New coach Slater, who replaces the one series and done Paul Green, has hinted at plenty of debutant inclusions.
Speaking to AAP, Holmes said he wasn't focusing on last year.
"I reckon new coach, new group, new coaching staff," Holmes said.
"I think Billy's thought process will be to wipe it. It's a new year. It's going to be a new way we play.
"Obviously everyone knows the way last year went so there's no need to bring that up.
"It'll be about the new boys coming through. I wouldn't want to listen or talk about last year."
"He's the perfect fit for Origin level," Holmes said.
"He's pretty much the perfect mould for what Origin is all about. He's tough, tenacious he can play 80 (minutes), he can play several positions.
"He's a true Queenslander ... he'd definitely deserve that jersey if he does get selected."
Queensland will announce their team at 9am (AEST) on Monday morning.
