Hodges confirms Origin III is his last

Queensland veteran centre Justin Hodges has confirmed he will play his final game for his beloved Maroons in the State of Origin decider in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

Queensland coach Mal Meninga and Maroons teammates had kept the door open for the 33-year-old Hodges to return to Origin next year if they lost the series to NSW this week.

However, Hodges says he won’t play again for Queensland no matter the result of his 23rd Origin game since his 2002 debut.

“I’m done,” said Hodges, who has yet to decide whether he play on in the NRL next year for Brisbane.
