Tuesday nights at 7.30pm on NITV (Ch 34 & Foxtel 144)
On tonight's show, NSW Blues coach Laurie Daley chats to Hannah Hollis about the upcoming State of Origin series.
"[Origin] means everything, it means you're playing for the state, you're playing for the people that wore the jersey before you. We're very passionate about New South Wales – we want to see New South Wales win."
Daley also speaks on potential team selections.
"[Andrew] Fifita's right up there, he's been there in the past… another one we've got our eye on is probably James Roberts – a couple of Koori boys that we might be able to sneak in there – Ryan James is another one."
