NRL State Of Origin Game 3 – New South Wales Team

New South Wales coach Laurie Daley has named a twenty man squad for 2013 State of Origin Game Three that will be played in Sydney on Wednesday July 17.

With injury concerns hovering over several of his key players Daley decided to play it safe by announcing three different emergencies.

Winger Jarryd Hayne was named to start on the wing but has already been ruled out through injury and will be replaced by James McManus while Boyd Cordner and Aaron Woods are in the squad as cover for Greg Bird and Paul Gallen.

Bird and Gallen are both expected to take their place in the starting side but will head into the game severely underdone.

The Blues made a few changes from their team that was beaten 26 to 6 by Queensland in Game Two at Suncorp Stadium.

Winger Nathan Merritt has been dropped, after his horror State of Origin debut, while James Tamou has been recalled in the place of Aaron Woods after missing Game Two due to suspension.

New South Wales are desperate to snap the seven Series State of Origin winning streak of the Queensland Maroons.
