Six Panthers picked for NSW Origin

Six Panthers have been selected in the NSW Blues squad to contest the State of Origin opener against Queensland on Wednesday 9 June.

Jarome Luai, Brian To'o and Liam Martin are set to make their Origin debuts alongside incumbents Nathan Cleary and Isaah Yeo, with Apisai Koroisau named 18th man.

Luai has been named at five-eighth with Canberra's Jack Wighton selected on the bench.

Latrell Mitchell is back in sky-blue for the first time since 2019 as he partners Tom Trbojevic in the centres, while Dragons enforcer Tariq Sims has also been brought back into the Blues fold on the right edge in place of injured Knights veteran Tyson Frizell.
