Stable mix of Blue stars
FOR once the stability and momentum have been with NSW in the Origin arena.
This year, there’s been six new Maroons — the most since 10 debutants in 2006.
The Blues have had just two — Jake Trbojevic and Nathan Peats in Origin I.
There is nothing like the Origin scene for pure pressure.
“You play the game a million times in your head and when you get out there it really hits you,” Trbojevic said.
“Throughout the day they (the debutants) will be pretty nervous, but once they get out there and make a touch or a tackle they’ll be right to go.”
