Will Hopoate and Josh Jackson have been called into the NSW State of Origin squad as cover players.
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs back-rower Josh Jackson and Parramatta Eels centre Will Hopoate will join the NSW VB Blues squad ahead of Holden State of Origin I next Wednesday.

Jackson has been named 18th man for the VB Blues, while Hopoate will join the squad as 19th man.

Both players will travel to Coffs Harbour today.

“We wanted to bring in a forward and a back to cover all bases,” VB Blues coach Laurie Daley said.

“Both players have been in terrific form for their clubs and deserve the opportunity to spend some time in camp.”
