NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler has confirmed his side for the State of Origin opener against Queensland on Wednesday 8 June.

Panthers gun Stephen Crichton has been named to make his Origin debut from the interchange bench, with Kotoni Staggs and Jack Wighton selected in the centres.

Panthers playmakers Jarome Luai and Nathan Cleary have been named as the halves, while winger Brian To’o, lock Isaah Yeo and backrower Liam Martin will also be in the final 17.

Hooker Apisai Koroisau has been included in Brad Fittler’s extended squad, but will be eligible to return to the Panthers side for Friday night’s match against the Bulldogs.
