The team will be captained by Boyd Cordner and includes 11 players from the squad that won the Holden State of Origin series last year for the first time since 2014, while Josh Morris returns to the Origin arena after an absence of three years.


The five debutants include Canberra Raiders winger Nick Cotric and five-eighth Jack Wighton, South Sydney Rabbitohs five-eighth Cody Walker and lock Cameron Murray and Brisbane Broncos prop Payne Haas.

The team will be presented at the NSWRL’s annual True Blues black tie dinner at The Star Sydney Event Centre in front of almost 500 Rugby League dignitaries on Monday 27 May, with two new inductees to be added to the NSWRL The Star Hall of Fame.
