yep, Thaiday and Lockyer think Billy's a good chance to play in game 3 I want him to give his knee a little bit more of a rest so he's right for the Storm's game against the Raiders.

Yeah im guessing if Billy plays he'll stuff his knee up for the rest of the season, and i dont think the storm will be willing to let that happen going into the finals.

Queensland selectors have given injured full-back Billy Slater the chance to prove his fitness for next week's State of Origin III at Suncorp Stadium.
Slater sustained a posterior cruciate ligament injury in Origin II earlier this month and despite still being a long shot to be available for the series decider, he has been named in an extended 20-man Maroons squad.
North Queensland full-back Matt Bowen has been named in the squad as cover for Slater, ahead of Ben Barba.
Maroons coach Mal Meninga says it is touch and go whether Slater will start in Origin III and decision will need to be made by this Saturday. Meninga says Slater returned to light training with Melbourne on Monday and he will be given every opportunity to prove that he is fit to play.
Lock Ashley Harrison was ruled out with a broken toe, with Corey Parker set to claim his place in the Maroons back row.
Parker's Broncos team-mate Ben Te'o has been called up and is a candidate for a role off the interchange bench.
Sam Thaiday will need to prove his fitness, having only just returned from the shoulder injury that ruled him out of Origin II.

Maroons squad:
Cameron Smith (captain), Matt Bowen, Darius Boyd, Petero Civoniceva, Cooper Cronk, Matt Gillett, Ben Hannant, Justin Hodges, Greg Inglis, Nate Miles, Dane Nielsen, Corey Parker, Matt Scott, David Shillington, Billy Slater, Brent Tate, Dave Taylor, Ben Te'o, Sam Thaiday, Johnathan Thurston (three to be omitted)

Glenn Stewart has been ruled out of the State of Origin decider after failing a fitness test on Friday and will be replaced by Beau Scott.
The Manly back rower partially tore his medial ligament last week but like Queensland's Billy Slater was given the opportunity to defy medical opinion and prove his fitness for the clash at Suncorp Stadium.
"Stewart underwent a fitness test at training on his injured knee but Blues medical staff ruled he would not be ready to play in time for Wednesday's series-deciding clash," an official Blues statement read.
Stewart rode an exercise bike and participated in a light running session on Thursday but evidently when he stepped up his regime his body was found wanting.
His place will be taken by the Dragons' Scott who has not been in the Blues' matchday squad for the first two games.
Earlier, Queensland confirmed that Greg Inglis will replace Billy Slater at full-back for the State of Origin decider on Wednesday night.
Slater had a fitness test in Melbourne on Thursday and this morning confirmed his knee injury has ruled him out.
"I've decided to pull out of SOO 3 today," Slater tweeted. "V tough decision, but one that is best for the team. My knee just wouldn't of quite been right."
Dane Nielsen, playing in his third Origin match, will line up at left centre with Ben Te'o starting on the interchange bench after being 18th man for the previous two games.
Trent Mirren has been released from the extended New South Wales camp selected on Sunday, with Matt Bowen and Dave Taylor omitted from the Queensland matchday squad.

Queensland have won its 7th State of Origin series in a row, surviving a spirited New South Wales fightback to win tonight's decider 21-20 in front of more than 52,000 fans at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium.
NSW opened the lead in the fourth minute when Brett Morris brushed aside Sam Thaiday and sprinted 60 metres where he was hauled down just short of the line.
Corey Parker was adjudged to be offside from the subsequent play-the-ball and Carney converted the penalty.
New South Wales then stretched its lead when Morris dived over for his first Origin try in the 13th minute.
The early setback only served to inspire the Maroons, who seized control of the game with Johnathan Thurston becoming increasingly influential as the Blues were pegged back deep in their own half.
The pressure paid off at the halfway stage of the opening stanza when Thurston's glorious cut-out pass was hauled in by Darius Boyd.
The five-eighth missed the conversion, but he more than made amends six minutes before half-time when he pushed off a feeble Mitchell Pearce tackle and burst into the New South Wales half.
Parker looked to have botched a certain try, but he managed to squeeze out an offload and Thurston dived over the line and then added the extras from in front of the posts.
The Blues then shot themselves in the foot by handing the ball straight back to the Maroons when Jarryd Hayne kicked out on the full and Justin Hodges ran to the line for his fourth Origin try.
New South Wales was incensed at the decision by video referee Steve Clark to award the four points, claiming Ben Hannant obstructed Beau Scott to prevent him from attempting a tackle.
Trailing 16-8 at half-time, the Blues needed a good start but they failed to muster a sustained spell of pressure as Queensland dominated the desperate Blues.
However, in a rare foray into the enemy territory the visitors found the try line when Brett Stewart dived onto a clever kick from Robbie Farah to score.
Carney's conversion closed the gap to four points, but instead of sitting back on the lead, the hosts continued to press.
Greg Inglis looked certain to score when Smith made a magnificent break and found the advancing full-back, but a brilliant try-saving tackle from Josh Morris saw him fall centimetres short.
Two penalties from Thurston, who was named man of the match, increased the hosts' lead as Ricky Stuart's side battled gamely to stop Mal Meninga's marauding side.
It took a moment of brilliance to get them back into the game when Josh Morris launched himself high above Boyd to miraculously hold onto Farah's kick eight minutes from full-time and Carney held his nerve with a sideline conversion to level the scores at 20-20.
Then Cooper Cronk scored a brilliant field goal from 40m out four minutes from full-time.
NSW halfback Mitchell Pearce had his own 42m shot in the final 30 seconds but it sailed wide.
The Man of the Series is Nate Myles of the Maroons.

Queensland: 21 (D Boyd, J Thurston, J Hodges tries; J Thurston 2/3 conversions, 2/2 penalty goals; C Cronk 1/1 field goals)
New South Wales: 20 (B Morris, B Stewart, J Morris tries; T Carney 3/3 conversions, 1/1 penalty goals)

South Sydney's Dave Taylor has been rebuked by the Queensland Rugby League for showing the middle finger in the final seconds of Wednesday's State of Origin decider. Taylor was dropped from the Maroons line-up after a low-key effort in game two in Sydney but turned up at Suncorp Stadium to lend his support.
That apparently included flipping the bird to the Blues in the dying seconds of the game, with a screenshot in the 79th minute showing him hoisting his enormous middle digit as Queensland wound down the clock in its dramatic 21-20 victory. The screenshot lit up Facebook and Twitter.
Taylor said at Sydney Airport he had no recollection of the incident but the QRL had sent him a letter expressing their disappointment with his actions.

Former NRL star Craig Field has been remanded in custody on a charge of murder following an alleged fight at Kingscliff in northern NSW last night.
Mr Field, 39, and alleged accomplice Shaun Fathers, 41, were both charged with murder this afternoon following the alleged altercation with 50-year-old Kelvin Kane behind the Kingscliff Beach Hotel just before 9pm last night.
Mr Kane died in Tweed hospital this afternoon and Mr Field and Mr Fathers each had their grievous bodily harm charges upgraded to murder.
It is alleged an argument between the two parties inside the pub spilled into the back car park, where a scuffle erupted.
Neither Mr Field nor Mr Fathers, who sat expressionless throughout this afternoon's court hearing, applied for bail.
The case was adjourned to Lismore court on August 21.

Stephen Kearney this morning resigned as Parramatta coach, following just nine wins from 41 games in the past two years.
Despite speculation that he had jumped before being pushed, Kearney said the decision was his. "It's been a real difficult four months, to be fair, and it's been really challenging at times but I just thought the best thing for myself and family and club is to step away," he said at the press conference.
Parramatta CEO Bob Bentley said no one from the board had approached Kearney to tell him his time was up.
This was despite suggestions Kearney's presence had impacted on the club's chances of securing Penrith star Luke Lewis - who today announced he was joining Cronulla in 2013.
NSW Origin coach Ricky Stuart, who has also been linked to coaching Canberra where he starred as a player, is seen as the favourite to succeed Kearney in 2013. Former coach Jason Taylor - who had success at Parramatta when he took over from Brian Smith midway through 2006 before heading to South Sydney - is also considered a candidate, as are UK-based duo Nathan Brown and Michael Potter.
