Five Sharks named in Blues Origin squad
Stemming from the Club’s ten successive wins, five Sharks have been named in the NSW Blues squad to tackle the Queensland Maroons in Brisbane in 10 days time.
Perhaps the most notable inclusion is that of Wade Graham, who is set to make his Blues debut after being touted for the role for several seasons.
Graham though will face a nervous wait, as he is potentially to be cited by the NRL Match Review committee for a shot deemed high on the Cowboys’ Johnathan Thurston on Monday night.
Captain Paul Gallen will again lead the side, while Game I stars James Maloney and Andrew Fifita have retained their place in the team.
21-year-old Jack Bird has also been named in the squad as a development player, who will train with the camp in Coffs Harbour in the lead up to Game II.
