In-form Koroisau in Origin discussion
OVER to you, Apisai Koroisau.
Before round six of the NRL, the Manly hooker was considered the front runner for theNSW No 9 jersey.
On Thursday night South Sydney’s Damien Cook went and broke the Sydney Roosters’ line open with such ease and regularity, he was suddenly the hottest ticket in town.
Not to be outdone, Cameron McInnes had his say for St George Illawarra against Cronulla on Friday night with a 50-metre dash out of dummy-half to ram home his strong start to the year.
State of Origin is still six weeks away but talk of selection never goes away.
Koroisau will get his next chance to impress against the Wests Tigers today.
‘‘Of course it’s a goal of mine to play Origin,’’ Koroisau said last week. ‘‘But at the same time I’m not thinking about that when I’m out on the field there.’’
