New South Wales coach Brad Fittler wants to have his Origin side selected before Round 11, reports the Sydney Herald.
Even though this weekend’s Indigenous Round is widely viewed as a final audition for players looking to prove their Origin prospects, Fittler wants to have his team sorted prior to Sunday night’s announcement.
He will meet with advisor Greg Alexander and assistant coaches Danny Buderus and Craig Fitzgibbon on Wednesday in hopes of picking a 17 and a couple of reserves.
There is sure to be a number of first-time players, while speculation continues to mount on who will start in the halves.
While Fittler and his assistants want to have a side pencilled in on Wednesday, injuries could yet play a factor in the make-up of the team.
