State Of Origin Game III Teams 08 July 2015
New South Wales Blues:
Josh Jackson is available for NSW after successfully fighting his dangerous throw charge at the judiciary. He should take his spot on the bench, but there have been rumours that Luke Lewis will take a position on the bench.
There are also rumours that Will Hopoate will be dropped for Blake Ferguson. Michael Jennings will also retain his spot despite his drunken incident last week.
Robbie Farah is also going to miss Game 3 after breaking his hand in a Wests Tigers match. He may be named, but he is seriously in doubt to play, after also suffering a shoulder injury earlier this season.

Ryan Hinchcliffe and Josh Reynolds have been drafted into the NSW squad.
Queensland should welcome back Cooper Cronk, as he has trained well with his club side, Melbourne. Billy Slater will not play Origin 3 after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. Greg Inglis is most likely to slot in at fullback.
There are also whisperings that both Dylan Napa and Josh Papalii stand a chance for Game 3.
