Head coach Wayne Bennett said: "We have always been clear that the door to the senior squad is open to any player showing the form to be selected. "The squad has a real mix of experience and youth and that will prove important during our time in Denver."

South Sydney Rabbitohs women's halfback and new NSW Women's State of Origin captain Maddie Studdon says it's a "dream come true" to be pulling on the armband for the Blues next Friday night. "It means a lot obviously, I've been around the rugby league world for a lot of years now I started playing when I was four years old so it's a dream come true," Studdon explained. Including Studdon there were five Rabbitohs selected to play for the Blues giving NSW quite the Red and Green flair, which Studdon says is a great boost for the side. "Definitely having these Souths girls out there will be a massive help I'm really proud of how we've been going this year and I can't wait to lead the girls out on North Sydney Oval and hopefully it's a good result," said Studdon. With a big couple of weeks ahead Studdon is focused on keeping the body in tip-top shape with the Harvey Norman Premiership finals right around the corner. But for now, the star halfback is just enjoying her special moment "It is an amazing feeling it's a massive honour for myself, it's big shoes to fill with after Ruan Sims after her injury but I can't wait to run out on Friday night."
