Darius Boyd and Josh McGuire have been included in a familiar-looking Queensland XXXX Maroons side to face NSW in next Wednesday's State of Origin I clash at ANZ Stadium.

Boyd will again line up on the wing for Queensland despite only playing two games this season since returning from injury, while McGuire will make his Origin debut from the interchange.

Daly Cherry-Evans has been named as the backline utility on the bench but is carrying an elbow injury and could be replaced by Michael Morgan before next week's game.

Jacob Lillyman returns to the side on the bench, while Roosters young gun Dylan Napa has been named 18th man.
