South Sydney Rabbitohs centre Campbell Graham has been withdrawn from the NSW State of Origin squad for Game I by the NSW Blues today.
For a number of weeks, Graham has been managing his training loads at the beginning of each week to allow him to be fit on game day.
Unfortunately, this meant he would not be able to be fully involved in the Blues early sessions this week and, as a result, they withdrew him from the squad.
Graham will return to the Rabbitohs squad today and he will be assessed throughout the week as to whether he is fit to play in Saturday’s game against the Canberra Raiders.
The NSW Blues have now named their team for Origin I. It is:
- James Tedesco (c) (Sydney Roosters)
- Brian To’o (Penrith Panthers)
- Latrell Mitchell (South Sydney Rabbitohs)
- Tom Trbojevic (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)
- Josh Addo-Carr (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs)
- Jarome Luai (Penrith Panthers)
- Nathan Cleary (Penrith Panthers)
- Tevita Pangai Junior (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs)
- Apisai Koroisau (Wests Tigers)

- Junior Paulo (Parramatta Eels)
- Cameron Murray (South Sydney Rabbitohs)
