Queensland coach Kevin Walters has flagged a number of new faces for the 2017 Origin series.

With the loss of forward leader Matt Scott and centre Greg Inglis to season ending injuries, Walters (pictured)  is facing down a Blues side that has the Maroons squarely in their sights.

The need for new blood in the forwards with the loss of Scott and the retired Corey Parker has Walters considering a number of the competitions finest young forwards as potential Queensland players in 2017.
