Maroons pack leader Josh Papalii will not tell young tyro Tino Fa'asuamaleaui to tone down his aggression but wants him to channel it into his hit-ups and tackles in the Origin series decider.
Papalii said it would be hypocritical of him to speak to Fa'asuamaleaui about discipline leading into next week's decider given he was also guilty of showing frustration during the loss.
The Raiders enforcer wasn't on the field when Fa'asuamaleaui traded blows with Blues rival Payne Haas.
Fa'asuamaleaui has been fined for his part in the melee while Papalii escaped sanction for pulling Angus Crichton's hair five minutes after scoring Queensland's second try.
"I got into a little bit of red [in my] head, I lost control of the sense of where the game was," Papalii said.
