Ben Hannant is still on Queensland's State of Origin radar despite a spectacular fall from grace at the Brisbane Broncos.

But Maroons selector Alan Smith admits time is running out for Hannant to state another compelling Origin case ahead of the 2014 series opener in Brisbane on May 28.

Despite statistics indicating he is Brisbane's form forward, Hannant has been sensationally dropped from the Broncos' 17 by coach Anthony Griffin for Friday night's NRL clash with North Queensland.

Smith says Hannant is still in the mix for Origin I but has to force his way back into the Broncos 17 to be seriously considered for one of the few Queensland spots still up for grabs.

That will be easier said than done with reports claiming the off contract Hannant has fallen out with Griffin and is resigned to moving on, with his agent George Mimis already talking with a rival NRL club.
