Four current Sharks will pull on the blue jersey of NSW and take to the field in rugby league’s showpiece event tonight, with all the action set to be shown ‘live and loud’ in the Locker Room at Sharks Leagues Club.
Wade Graham, Andrew Fifita, James Maloney and Jack Bird will be doing the Sharks and hopefully NSW proud when they attempt to reclaim the Origin trophy, beginning with game one of the series later tonight.
At this stage, while tactics and team line ups are usually kept close to the chest of coaching staff and team insiders, it appears as if Fifita will get his first opportunity in a starting role for NSW, while Maloney reunites with his old Roosters teammate Mitchell Pearce in the halves in re-forming a combination Laurie Daley believes can get the job done in this the first of three Origin clashes this year.
As for Graham and Bird, their roles in the NSW team are a little less predictable, with Daley likely to use the pair off the interchange bench looking for the two Sharks to provide energy and impact once thrust into the game.
Once again the State of Origin contest, with its intensity and passion, promises to be a game not to be missed.
What better place for Sharks members and fans to take in all the action than the Locker Room at Sharks Leagues Club.
