Blues Team Make SEVEN Changes To The Team Before Origin II

Coach Brad Fittler has made seven changes to his NSW Blues team for their must win in Origin II this Sunday (June 26th) in Perth as bid to set up a decider for game III. 

Ryan Matterson, Kotoni Staggs, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Jacob Saifiti, Tyson Frizell and Tariq Sims have all been dropped from the 17 that lost 16-10 to Queensland, with Jack Wighton the only forced change as he has COVID-19.

Fittler said It was the only option after a defeat in the first Origion Game (8th June) was to change tactics, especially when the three-match series was on the line.

The Coach said he has made the changes with impact in mind as the Blues desperately try to square the series after the Maroons made the win in game one.
