Updated: NSW Blues side named for Origin I
The following 17-man squad has been selected to represent the NSW VB Blues in Game One of the 2016 Holden State of Origin series at ANZ Stadium on June 1.
Josh Morris and Tyson Frizell were released from the original 19-man squad on Wednesday afternoon and will be free to play in the NRL this weekend for their respective clubs before re-joining the NSW side on Monday.
Four debutants have been named, with Josh Mansour, Matt Moylan, Adam Reynolds and Dylan Walker to have their first taste of State of Origin football if selected in the final side.
Panthers forward Bryce Cartwright was initially added as a development player, but was subsequently removed from the squad due to a thumb injury. An announcement is yet to be made regarding his replacement.
