South Sydney Star Latrell Mitchell Makes Comeback In Nsw State Of Origin Squad

New South Wales Blues coach Michael Maguire has announced the squad for Game Two of the Ampol State of Origin series, with standout changes featuring the return of Rabbitohs’ Latrell Mitchell. Mitchell steps in to replace the suspended Joseph Sua’ali’i in the centres, marking his first Origin appearance since 2021. Joining Mitchell, fresh faces in the lineup include Connor Watson, Dylan Edwards, Mitchell Moses, and Cameron Murray, bringing a renewed energy to the Blues as they aim to level the series.

Connor Watson is set to make his debut, taking the bench spot formerly held by Hudson Young, while Cameron Murray fills in for Sharks’ lock Cameron McInnes. Mitchell Moses, who missed out on Game One due to injury concerns, returns to bolster the New South Wales side, alongside Dylan Edwards, making his Origin debut after being sidelined in the opener.

The Blues will kick off their preparations in Sydney before heading to Katoomba for training ahead of the crucial clash in Melbourne. With the Maroons yet to reveal their lineup, the Blues are strategizing to turn the tables and secure a vital win at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Key names such as Jake Trbojevic, Brian To’o, and Stephen Crichton remain constants in the Blues squad, providing stability and experience as they gear up for a high-stakes encounter. Maguire’s selections emphasize versatility and depth, aiming to counter Queensland’s tactics and mount a strong challenge in the series.
