Morgan cleared for Origin decider

Michael Morgan has been cleared to play for Queensland Maroons in the State of Origin decider at ANZ Stadium next Wednesday.

The North Queensland Cowboys captain was concussed by a tackle from St George Illawarra Dragons forward Korbin Sims last Friday.

Morgan linked up with the Maroons squad on Monday and is set to face New South Wales Blues in Sydney next week.

"It's all good now. I was pretty dazed on Friday night but since then I have had no headaches or dizziness." Morgan said on Friday.

"I don't actually remember [the incident] and I don't remember the next half an hour walking off the field - I don't even know if I did an HIA test in the sheds.

"I was pretty rocked, but since then I have felt pretty good.

"Yesterday afternoon I did the cognitive test that you have to do to be passed to play. I did that and I passed so from now on I am pretty much good to go. That was the final test.

"You always get a bit nervous [about] it because you do the base line at the start of the year to see where your standard is, and you have to get a certain standard to pass.

"It's not too bad, just a bit of reaction stuff on a computer and yes/no questions."
