James, Prior and Keary named in Blues Origin squad

Ryan James, Matt Prior and Luke Keary have been called up to the New South Wales Blues squad for the second State of Origin showdown next Sunday.

Reagan Campbell-Gillard has been ruled out of the clash at ANZ Stadium after suffering a broken jaw in Penrith Panthers' NRL defeat to Sydney Roosters on Friday.

Gold Coast Titans forward James, Cronulla Sharks prop Prior and Roosters half-back Keary were on Sunday included in a 20-man Blues squad.

Latrell Mitchell was also selected by Blues head coach Brad Fittler, but will have to prove his fitness after suffering a neck injury in the Roosters' 32-6 thrashing of the Panthers.

Nick Cotric has been left out by Fittler as New South Wales eye a victory which would wrap up the series with a match to spare, having won the opener 22-12 at the MCG. 

 

NSW Blues: Josh Addo-Carr, Nathan Cleary, Damien Cook, Boyd Cordner, Angus Crichton, Jack De Belin, Tyson Frizell, Ryan James, Luke Keary, David Klemmer, James Maloney, Latrell Mitchell, Tyrone Peachey, Matt Prior, James Roberts, Tariq Sims, James Tedesco, Jake Trbojevic, Tom Trbojevic, Paul Vaughan.
