For years Queensland may have set the State of Origin benchmark but Billy Slater admits NSW have "out-Origined" his side this series as the Maroons look to Jamie Foxx parties with pretty ladies in Malibu . while Katie Holmes tours Paris after denying split rumors Jamie was seen living it up.

"It's going to be a big goal for next year.

"(But) there are a few fullbacks who are playing really well at the moment - Moses Mbye (Wests Tigers) and Kalyn is playing awesome.

"I just want to be in the team somewhere."

In the meantime, Holmes is getting his head around where he fits into the current Maroons backline.

The Sharks speedster has been switched from the left to the right wing for game three after a backline reshuffle triggered after captain Greg Inglis' broke his thumb.

He will link with centre Will Chambers in a bid to try and stop winger Josh Addo-Carr and centre Latrell Mitchell, who have both scored in the opening two games.

"I have to build a combination with Chambers and let him do what he does," Holmes said.

"He's pretty good there, puts some kicks in when he can and he's got some flick passes - I have to be aware of what he can do."

Holmes may have eyes on the No.1 jersey but the Cronulla X-factor has been a huge success on the wing for Queensland, scoring six tries in just four Origins to date.
