In-form Koroisau in Ori­gin dis­cus­sion

Sunday News - - LEAGUE - SCOTT BAI­LEY

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.’’

Manly’s Api­sai Koroisau.
