The knowledgable rugby league minds of The Roar have spoken and if the results are anything to go by, NSW selectors have some difficult decisions to make before naming their side at 5.00pm AEST on Sunday.

State of Origin is almost here. Mate against mate, state against state.

NSW’s State of Origin I team takes place on Sunday evening, but we thought we’d give you the opportunity to become Laurie Daley (just for a minute!) and pick the Blues team. So tell us, who should line up 1-17 for NSW in State of Origin I?

Winger Jorge Taufua’s match-winning try for the Sea Eagles against St George-Illawarra on Monday night came as little surprise to fervent Manly watchers.

Who would make your NSW team, if you had to pick one now? I would find room for Josh Reynolds and John Sutton, and I would try to convince Jamie Lyon to have one last hurrah.

Adam Reynolds’ red-hot early season form for South Sydney has set up an intriguing battle with Mitchell Pearce for the City Origin and NSW No.7 shirt.

It seemed like there were a thousand players mentioned as potential New South Wales Origin selections this year, but considering only 17 players can be named, it meant that there were a lot of disappointed players on Sunday afternoon.

The first person to call Todd Carney minutes after he was named NSW Origin five-eighth was his good friend and the bloke who’ll wear the No.7 for the Blues, Mitchell Pearce.

He was selected for second-tier rugby league action last week and NSW State of Origin this week, but Blues coach Ricky Stuart has no doubts Michael Jennings has what it takes to shine.
3 Have your say
Todd Carney is hoping his partnership with Mitchell Pearce which helped guide Sydney Roosters to the 2010 grand final will give him the edge over his rivals for the NSW five-eighth spot.

Some may say it’s too early for an NRL blog, since it’s 51 days till the NRL season kicks off, so it would be way too early for a State of Origin one since its 134 days till the first game…

We all know what happened in the 2011 State of Origin series. So how’s this for a New South Wales Origin team for 2012?

Please don’t tell me that Ricky Stuart has instilled pride and passion back into the NSW Blues jumper. How many times did we hear the coach, the players, and even the biased media use that mind numbing word “passion”?

The talk coming into Origin III was how Ricky Stuart had unlocked the secret of new rugby league. No more props, it was going to be Dutch total football forward packs with a slew of back rowers capable of offloads and wearing down the opposing big guys with angled runs.

The stage is set for an epic encounter when the NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons battle each other once again in State of Origin III at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane tomorrow night.

Jarryd Hayne claims the restructuring of NSW’s State of Origin set-up has the Blues better prepared than ever to end Queensland’s dominance.

On the eve of arguably the biggest night of his coaching career, Stuart has told his 19-man squad who will be the 17 on duty for NSW at Suncorp in the Origin decider tomorrow night. But no-one outside the NSW bunker will know the final selection until an hour before kick-off.

It doesn’t matter if you love him or hate him, but if you follow rugby league, Phil Gould has an impact on your life.

Ricky Stuart’s gamble with selection worked wonders for NSW in State of Origin II and the Blues coach is set for another on Sunday by naming Jarryd Hayne in the centres for the July 6 decider in Brisbane.

I moved to Brisbane from Sydney some ten years ago, and in the main find the place a very livable city. I have made several friends here (but must admit my closest mates are like me, ex-pat New South Welshman) and find most people warm and friendly.
