How The Two Origin Teams Could Look Based On Form After NRL Round 8

How The Two Origin Teams Could Look Based On Form After NRL Round 8

You know what day it is - it's Origin Team Wednesday!

I tell you what, this round was very hard to pick. Players who have been doing so well each week are either out injured or not playing up to their normal standards.

But I've done it! I have selected players for my State of Origin teams based entirely on their performance from Round 8. I've even picked one player who only just returned from injury that came on late in that match and made enough of an impact to warrant a start.

No one will be getting picked on reputation, so expect to see a few surprises and some big names missing.

There are quite a few new faces which is always nice, and there were others that were so close to being picked but I had to leave behind.

Ok, let's have a look!
