Elliott, who has more than 270 games of NRL coaching experience, explains what the return of Cooper Cronk will mean to the Maroons and his partnership with Johnathan Thurston.

He then analyses Greg Inglis's move to fullback in place of the injured Billy Slater. Will Inglis be more potent at the back rather than at centre for the Maroons?

The Breakdown finishes with a look at the NSW engine room – Aaron Woods, James Tamou and young gun David Klemmer, to see how big an impact they will have on the Queensland forwards.
