TAB Sportsbet has this morning opened markets on which players will represent NSW in SOO 1 in the vital positions of Fullback and Hooker.
Many, many hours and column inches of discussion have taken place over the last few weeks as the Blues try and settle on a side to take on Queensland at Etihad Stadium on May 23.
An injury to Danny Buderus has thrown the hooker spot up for grabs with the main challengers looking to be Bulldogs Michael Ennis ($1.85) and Wests Tigers Robbie Farah ($3.50).
The 'wildcard' for the rake spot could be Melbourne Storm's Ryan Hinchcliffe ($5) although he may be better suited off the bench as a possible utility forward.
Who plays at the back for NSW seems no easier a puzzle to decipher with Josh Dugan, who returned from a shoulder injury last Sunday, posted the $2.25 favourite over Manly's Brett Stewart ($3.25) with Jarryd Hayne and incumbent Anthony Minichello next at $5.50
In Origin Series betting Qld is the dominant favourite at $1.55 (in from $1.60 last week) with NSW $2.45 (out from $2.25).
