Pearce and Peats named for NSW

Sydney Roosters halfback Mitchell Pearce has been recalled while Gold Coast Titans hooker Nathan Peats will make his State of Origin debut after New South Wales announced its team for Game One on Monday night.

NSW Blues coach Laurie Daley decided to go with Peats at hooker when Penrith Panthers rake Peter Wallace was ruled out with a groin injury earlier today. 

Roosters back-rower Boyd Cordner will become the 19th player to captain the NSW Origin side.

Cordner, who has made six Origin appearances for NSW since debuting in 2013, will lead a team boasting veterans Jarryd Hayne, Pearce and Brett Morris, while Peats and Jake Trbojevic are set to make their Origin debuts Wednesday-week at Suncorp Stadium.

Additional players Matt Moylan, Jordan McLean and Jack De Belin will join the team in camp at Kingscliff.
