Hinchcliffe, Finucane named for Country

Storm forwards Ryan Hinchcliffe and Dale Finucane have both been named in Trent Barrett's 2015 Country squad.

A draw in 2014, the City Country fixture presents a good opportunity for players of NSW origin to put their best foot forward and stake a claim for a berth in Laurie Daley's 2015 NSW Blues squad as they look to retain the State of Origin shield.

Storm take on reigning premiers South Sydney at AAMI Park, Saturday 16 May from 7:30pm. Get your tickets.

Hinchcliffe has previously made two appearances for NSW Country, making his representative debut in Country's 2011 victory before also earning selection a year later as he played a crucial role at Club level in Melbourne's run to the 2012 premiership.

23-year old Finucane made his debut for Country last year, playing off the bench for Barrett's side. In December, Finucane was one of 22 players named in the 2015 Emerging Blues squad and took part in a one-day training camp run by coach Daley in January.

Country will play City in Wagga Wagga with the annual fixture taking place on Sunday afternoon from 4pm.
