Queensland winger Corey Oates will face arguably his toughest challenge outside of State of Origin on Thursday night - but it is news to him.

Brisbane flyer Oates admitted on Monday he had no idea he would be taking on Canberra's lethal right-edge NRL combination of Joseph Leilua and Jordan Rapana at Suncorp Stadium this week.

"I really don't know. I don't really watch much footy - I will play whoever pops up against me," said Oates who made his Origin debut in Queensland's 6-4 game one win in Sydney.
