New faces for NSW in Origin Game III

Wests Tigers No.1 James Tedesco has claimed his first NSW VB Blues jersey after coach Laurie Daley named the 23-year-old at fullback for Game III of the 2016 Holden State of Origin Series. 

Tedesco will join Cronulla Sharks back-rower Wade Graham, who was denied his first crack at Origin in Game II due to suspension, as the two debutants in the side.

Bryce Cartwright (Panthers) and brothers Jake and Tom Trbojevic (Sea Eagles) were also named as development players.
