Curtis Scott wants to force his way into the NSW Blues Origin side, using fellow teammate Josh Addo-Carr's rise as inspiration.

The Melbourne Storm centre has continued to improve over the last two seasons, scoring six tries in the 2017 season and a further ten in the last season.

"I will be doing everything I can to hopefully get a jersey," an optimistic Scott told

"I will be putting my hand up. Letโ€™s put it that way.

"But its only round one, so I have got to put my head down and work really hard for that."

Scott played a pivotal role in the Storm's season opener, after he pounced on a mistake to score in a 22-12 victory over the Brisbane Broncos at AAMI Park.

Despite his ambitions to play Origin in three months time, Scott understands it is important to not look past the Storm's next game against the Raiders.

'We will have our hands full this week. They have a very aggressive forward pack and I think itโ€™s going to be a good battle between the forwards," Scott said.

"They kept the Titans to nil and they have a lot of strike power in their outside backs.

"We are confident that if we hang on to the footy and compete, we will go a long way to winning the game."

Scott and the Melbourne Storm play the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium on Friday night.


  1. Played one really good game out of his last 30 and he thinks he is a bolter for Origin. I doubt it๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  2. Sorry Scotty, there just aren’t enough spaces. You’re not going to be taking it off Latrell, So it’d have to be Jimmy the Jet. That’s also when Fittler is going to have to try and fit two of Tommy T, Addo-Carr and Nick Cotric into the wing positions, potentially moving one of them to centre. Not to mention Blake Ferguson who’ll justify an origin jersey himself if he keeps playing like he did last year and in round 1. It’s just not going to happen.

  3. Mitchell isn’t going anywhere. The only chance is to replace Roberts.
    Seeing as Roberts is overrated and offered nothing in last year’s series, he is easily replaced. Not saying Scott is the answer just saying Roberts isn’t.

  4. Unless there is injury, or massive form drop, the only one in any danger of missing out from last year in the outside backs would be Roberts. Even though Turbo played out of position, and I generally don’t like that, he handled it well and will be picked again. Addo Carr and Mitchell were great. That said, I would still have Scott a bit down the list on next in line.
