NSW Blues side named for Origin III
James Tedesco, Wade Graham and Josh Dugan are the fresh faces in the NSW Origin side for Game Three of the 2016 Holden State of Origin series to be played at ANZ Stadium on July 13.
Halfback Adam Reynolds has been ruled out, with Jack Bird moving into the halves to partner James Maloney and Matt Moylan coming onto the bench.
Tedesco missed selection for Game One through injury but has replaced Moylan in the starting side at fullback, with Dugan also returning from injury at the expense of Dylan Walker. After being initially selected for Game Two and subsequently missing through suspension, Wade Graham will finally get his first taste of Origin football, with experienced campaigner Greg Bird making way.
Brothers Jake and Tom Trbojevic as well as Panthers young gun Bryce Cartwright have been included in the wider squad as development players.
