Maloney calls for Blues selection calm

Sharks and NSW five-eighth James Maloney has urged Blues selectors to opt for the same 17 men who went down in Game I, for Game II in Brisbane on June 22.

Speaking on the Big Sports Breakfast  on Thursday morning, Maloney said he and the Blues are disappointed having gone down in a game that they 'probably should have won', but also that he is hopeful the same squad gets a chance to atone in under three weeks time.
