NSW-State-Of-Origin

THE BACKLINE

1 James Tedesco

8194e4b59e02cf7724fca6079b707868

NSW coach Laurie Daley simply can’t overlook the form of Wests Tigers fullback James Tedesco. Looks Dangerous everytime he has the ball in his hands a Must Pick for 2017


2 Latrell Mitchell

NRL+Rd+17+Roosters+v+Bulldogs+j9d-Mi2oAtWl

Mitchell’s move to the centre’s in 2017 has been some what impressive, as he leads the NRL in try scoring with 5 after 4 rounds. With Josh Dugan and Jack Bird in the centres, there is no reason why Mitchell can’t do it all on the wing.


3 Josh Dugan

799687-josh-dugan

Is one of the main reasons the Dragons currently sit 3rd on the NRL ladder. An Amazing 27 tackle bust, scoring 2 tries and setting up another. Automatic pick


4 Jack Bird

1466326932168

Yet to score a Try in 2017, but boy he has looked strong for Cronulla. A very talented player that is built for Origin. A easy choice in the centres.


5 Blake Ferguson

373866-blake-ferguson

A Rib cartilage has hampered him the last two weeks, but Ferguson is big, fast and damn near impossible to stop on the edge has scored a try in his two matches he has appeared in this season and is a favourite with coach Laurie Daley.


THE HALVES

6 James Maloney

James-maloney-1200

The heart and soul of NSW, Seems to break the QLD line for a Try everytime he plays against them. Has scored two tries so far in the 2017 season and his goal kicking has been on point.


7 Mitchell Pearce

920c9eaf334e154b5ac4b1b0904de160

The No.7 will be one of the most controversial debates this season and to add fuel to the fire we have chosen Mitchell Pearce. Love or Hate him has started the 2017 with a bang, guiding his beloved Rooster to top of the NRL Ladder. Pearce edges out Adam Reynolds by a whisker and Pearce combination with former teammate James Maloney is a bonus
