After the NSW Blues lost to Queensland on Wednesday night, ten players will have two weeks to support their case for Origin selection for New South Wales.

Coach Brad Fittler is sure to make at least a couple of changes as he fights for his job as NSW head coach and to keep the 2023 State of Origin series alive.

From some players who possibly should have been picked for Game 1, to players to returning stars and others overdue for a debut, here are the ten players Fittler could bring into calculations for a Game 2 jersey.

A player that was expected to be selected in Game 1 due to his great early season form, Haumole Olakau'atu struggled to string together good performances in recent times with his form dipping.

A strong imitating back-rower, he can still drop his name into selection with a strong showing against the Dolphins next week. Going up against the likes of the Bromwich brothers, if he is able to dominate he might just make enough noise to be selected on the interchange bench.
