New South Wales Blues coach Brad Fittler has named his squad for Game 2 of the 2022 State of Origin series to be played at Optus Stadium in Perth on Sunday, June 26.
The coach has made seven changes to his initial Origin I line-up with the additions of Matt Burton, Angus Crichton, Clint Gutherson, Jordan McLean, Victor Radley, Siosifa Talakai and Jake Trbojevic to the Blues side.
Former Storm fullback Nicho Hynes will continue to hunt for his NSW Origin debut remaining as 18th man as named two weeks ago.
The Blues will be eager for a win on Sunday to retain their chance at holding the Origin Shield as they currently trail 1-0 after their loss to the Maroons in Game 1.
