Daley Finalises Positions For Origin I
Fri 27th May, 12:00PM

NSW VB Blues coach Laurie Daley has today awarded final player numbers and positions for the team ahead of State of Origin Game I at ANZ Stadium.

The final team sees Blake Ferguson combine with Michael Jennings on one edge, Josh Dugan and Josh Mansour on the other, while debutant Matt Moylan gets the nod for the fullback position.

Up front, Paul Gallen has returned to the front row – where he has played seven of his 21 Origin appearances to date – allowing Greg Bird to play at lock. It means Boyd Cordner will start in the second-row for the first time in his Origin career, while Josh Jackson will play on the edge for the first time.

That leaves a dangerous-looking bench consisting of debutant utility Dylan Walker and props James Tamou, David Klemmer and Andrew Fifita – the trio weighing in at around 350kg.

The full side for Origin I, 2016 is as follows:

No. Name NRL Club D.O.B Junior Club Origin App

1. Matt Moylan
2. Blake Ferguson
3. Michael Jennings
4. Josh Dugan
5. Josh Mansour
6. James Maloney
7. Adam Reynolds
8. Aaron Woods
9. Robbie Farah
10. Paul Gallen (c)
11. Boyd Cordner

15. James Tamou
16. David Klemmer
17. Andrew Fifita

This must be pretty exciting for the Bears players, particularly those who aren't part of the South Sydney squad. I think our last brush with Origin was when we were aligned with Melbourne and Billy Slater, coming back from either injury or suspension, played for North Sydney against Manly and there was speculation that if he had a blinder, he could be picked for Queensland. He must follow the press, as reports were that Slater seemed to be playing for himself rather than the team.

State of Origin 2016: All Blacks legend Tana Umaga visits NSW Blues secret session under the lights at ANZ Stadium

The NSW Blues invited All Blacks legend Tana Umaga to speak to the players at a secret opposed session against North Sydney after ANZ Stadium granted Laurie Daley's men special access to the venue on Sunday night

Origin teams have traditionally been given one training session at the match venue for their captain's run the day before the game, however the Blues were granted special acess on Sunday night for what was the first of two hit-outs before Wednesday's series opener.

Umaga, who is in Sydney to meet with Sonny Bill Williams' agent Khoder Nasser about bringing the dual international to the Auckland Blues, was invited by Daley to watch the session and speak to the players.

He has developed a relationship with the NSWRL in recent seasons after hosting Blues assistant coach Matt Parish in Auckland to provide an insight into the operation of the Super Rugby franchise.

In the past couple of years the Blues held their opposed session in Coffs Harbour on Sunday morning before flying back to Sydney in the afternoon, however they changed their schedule this year when the opportunity arose to get an extra session under the lights at Homebush.

It was their first session with Josh Morris at centre after the Bulldogs star back flew in from Canberra earlier that morning to cover for the shock omission of Josh Dugan.

The session was kept secret, the only hit-out of the NSW camp that wasn't open to the media.

The players were given a day off on Monday to prepare for their final session at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday morning, which will be followed by Queensland's only training run at the venue later that afternoon.

NSW coach Laurie Daley is conscious of how vital preparation is in determining a performance, but also knows there are things that can't be controlled given the captain's run before the 52-6 shellacking in game three was the best he had experienced since taking over as coach.

"I've been involved in preparations where you go in as confident as you can be, then you just walk away going 'wow, what happened?'," Daley said.

"Then there are other ones where you are really worried and nervous and you win. Everything you've been taught about preparation going towards performance goes out the window.

"[Last year] everything was crisp. No drop ball, good intensity. It's everything you want from a team. But we just left it all on the training field. I don't know, I can't tell any more."

The forecast is for rain at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday night, which Daley believes will suit his giant pack if it becomes a battle through the middle of the field.

"I think we'll probably tighten things up a little bit and play more through the middle," Daley said.

"That will probably suit us because we have a bigger team. But we're certainly not underestimating Queensland. They are a team that's mobile and fast, and mobile and fast people in wet conditions are hard to handle.

"It'll be the battle of the big versus the skilful players. I think it's supposed to be raining tomorrow (Tuesday) so on our captain's run we will get a session in with a bit of rain around."

The Blues have refrained from engaging in a war of words with the Maroons this time around.

The humiliating loss to decide the series at Suncorp Stadium last year has left NSW thinking they aren't entitled to talk the talk, reluctant to provide the Maroons with any additional ammunition.

"That's probably always been Queensland's approach," Daley said.

"It's probably always been our approach. Sometimes things are said in the media that get blown out of proportion, but again, we're not in a position to say anything.

"I think there's a number of reasons. You don't need to come out and say anything and two, we're not in a position to. Every individual is different I suppose but it's not the way I operate."

Ironically, the only game the Blues won last series was after skipper Paul Gallen launched a tirade against the Maroons on the eve of game two at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, describing the Queenslanders as arrogant.
