Slater willing to move to accommodate Ponga at fullback for Maroons

THE mere suggestion made Kalyn Ponga laugh. “Billy on the wing?” the 20-year-old scoffed.

But veteran No.1 Billy Slater says he has no problem filling in on the Maroons’ wing for the first time since 2004 and giving Queensland debutant Ponga a crack at fullback against NSW on Sunday.

Slater, 35, has declared himself a certain starter for this weekend’s must-win State of Origin game two in Sydney after overcoming a hamstring injury that forced his late withdrawal from their series-opening loss.

He will finally kickstart his swan song series when he runs out at ANZ Stadium for Origin No.30.
