Sta­ble mix of Blue stars

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

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.”
