Queensland believe NSW will field their best attacking line-up of the State of Origin series but are determined to blunt the threat of debutant fullback James Tedesco.

Maroons assistant Anthony Seibold says halfback Cooper Cronk wants to exploit swirling winds and target Tedesco and winger Josh Mansour with his kicking game in Wednesday night's State of Origin III at ANZ Stadium.

"Tedesco is a terrific club player but this is the next level up - he will have plenty of kicks in his direction," Seibold said.
