The NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons have finalised their line-ups for Wednesday night's Holden State of Origin series decider, with both teams making changes as expected.

David Klemmer moves into the starting front row for NSW alongside Knights teammate Daniel Saifiti, with Paul Vaughan to come off the bench as he did in Origin II. Dale Finucane will also come off the bench after starting in game two, with Jake Trbojevic starting at lock.  

Ethan Lowe replaces Matt Gillett in the Queensland 17 and comes straight into the starting side in the second row. Moses Mbye has been promoted to the starting side at centre with Michael Morgan the bench utility.
