Stuart calls on fans to help Blues' Origin bid

NSW coach Ricky Stuart has joined Blues legends and fans at the Sydney Football Stadium to declare today is the first step in uniting the entire state behind their quest to win back the Harvey Norman State of Origin Shield.

Brad Fittler, Trent Barrett, Bryan Fletcher, Mario Fenech, Laurie Daley, Terry Lamb, David Boyle, Max Krilich, Hazem El Masri and Benny Elias were among the Blues legends who today joined with fans and members of the Blues’ biggest supporter group, Blatchy’s Blues, to throw their support behind Stuart’s side.

With tickets now on sale for the only Harvey Norman State of Origin match in Sydney this year, Stuart called on all of NSW to unite behind the Blues and play a part in ending the Maroons’ five-year dominance of the series.

“Today is the first step in bringing all of NSW together to get behind the Blues,” Stuart said.

“You can see among our Blues legends here today and our Blatchy’s Blues supporters how much Origin means and how much we all want to win back the shield and I know how determined every NSW player is to represent their state and be part of what we are building here.

“There is only one match in Sydney so I would encourage all Blues fans to get in early and buy their tickets and pack out ANZ Stadium.”
