NSW Blues is all set and ready for the 2022 State of Origin Rugby event. The confirmed lineups will be soon announced in the coming days. Let’s have some predicted players to get in for NSW.
Latrell Mitchel is likely to miss the series opener due to a hamstring injury. This could make room for many talented centres. Stephen Crichton seems to be the frontrunner at this stage. However, Siosifa Malakai and Kotoni Staggs aren’t far behind.
Brian To’o was out of Penrith’s Round 2 game but is expected back after his knee injury. Daniel Tupou, if he is unable to return to the game against Queensland, will likely replace him on the wing.
Keaon Koloamatangi has been a great player for South Sydney and Ryan Papenhuyzen might have played himself into the bench utility position after shining at Cronulla.
