State of Origin Selection Headaches Continue for NSW After Injury Woes Hit Top Contenders

Published

on

In a turn of events, NSW State of Origin preparations suffered a blow as Nicho Hynes, the potential Blues squad member, was forced to withdraw from Cronulla’s recent clash due to calf tightness, adding to Michael Maguire‘s selection woes.

The injury concerns intensified following Nathan Cleary‘s hamstring issue, which may rule the Penrith halfback out for an extended period, further complicating the Blues’ lineup for the upcoming series.

With Cleary’s likely absence, the spotlight now shifts to other contenders such as Jarome Luai and Matt Burton, potentially altering the team composition for Origin I.

Moving forward, Mitch Moses emerges as a frontrunner to fill Cleary’s void, although his own fitness concerns add another layer of uncertainty to NSW’s selection dilemma.

Meanwhile, the injury setback to Tom Trbojevic fuels further speculation over the Blues’ lineup, with options such as Latrell Mitchell, Stephen Crichton, and Bradman Best coming into consideration for key positions.

Despite the setbacks, Isaah Yeo expresses confidence in the team’s ability to navigate through the challenges and deliver a competitive performance in the upcoming State of Origin series, highlighting the depth of the initial 36-man squad selected by Maguire.
