Knights gain U18s Origin selection

The NSWRL announced the finalised NSW Under-18s team to take on Queensland in the Origin II curtain-raiser at Suncorp Stadium with a number of young Newcastle Knights among the line-up.

Newcastle Knights Brodie Jones, Pasami Saulo, Tom Starling and Brendan O'Hagan have been chosen to represent their state. 

The team will assemble for a Medical and Training session on Wednesday at the NSWRL Academy, Narrabeen under the guidance and tuition of Head Coach Brad Fittler and Assistant Coach Matt King.

The State of Origin camp will then begin on Friday night before flying to Port Macquarie on Saturday morning where we will be the guests of Origin Pathways major sponsor Bamford Engineering. The four-day camp will include open training sessions at Port Macquarie Regional Stadium, hospital and school visits by our staff and players and development clinics with junior players to promote support for NSW and Rugby League in the area.

The team will arrive in Brisbane on Tuesday June 21, with the Under-18s State of Origin clash to kick off at 5.40pm on Wednesday June 22.
