New South Wales have made two enforced changes for this month's second State of Origin match against Queensland in Brisbane.

St George Illawarra full-back Josh Dugan will make his return to Origin level after Jarryd Hayne was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Wests Tigers prop Aaron Woods is the other change and will make his Origin debut as a replacement for the suspended James Tamou.

However Dugan, who earlier this year was sacked by Canberra for repeated off-field disciplinary issues, will need to overcome an ankle injury.

Blues coach Laurie Daley said: "He's a wonderful player Josh.

"I've coached him a couple of times. He's a good kid and a very talented kid. He obviously had some issues at the very start of the year."

NSW lead the series one-nil after winning the opening game in Sydney. Queensland will name their side on Tuesday.

New South Wales team to face Queensland on June 26: Josh Dugan, Brett Morris, Michael Jennings, Josh Morris, Blake Ferguson, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce, Paul Gallen (c), Robbie Farah, Aaron Woods, Ryan Hoffman, Luke Lewis, Greg Bird

Replacements: Andrew Fifita, Trent Merrin, Josh Reynolds, Anthony Watmough
