Roosters represented well in NSW Under 20s Origin Pathway Squad

NSW VB Blues coach Laurie Daley has named six Junior Roosters in the 37-man squad to participate in the 2014 Under 20s Origin Pathway Camp, seeing the Tricolours as the most represented NRL side in the 37-man outfit.


Jackson Hastings, Taane Milne, Tyler Cornish, Willis Meehan, Alex Thomas and Bradley Dietz have all been included in the squad to assemble this weekend at Narrabeen.


Cornish, Meehan, Thomas and Deitz were all regular members of Paul Green's Holden Cup side in 2013, when fit, and have been rewarded for a solid season in which the side finished third after 26 Rounds.


Milne, who was a star in the opening rounds of the 2013 season for the Tricolours, missed the second half of the year due to school commitments and representative rugby union, but is regarded a star of the future here at the Club.


Finally, Hastings has won his first representative honour as a Rooster without playing a game in the Red, White and Blue after making the switch from the Dragons for the 2014 season.



The camp, which will be run over two days, will include presentations on Origin history and culture, individual position sessions with Blues coaching staff and an on field session lead by Daley.


These camps are something that Ricky Stuart brought into the Origin system when he was in charge and I continue them because I believe they have some real merit to them, NSW VB Blues Coach Laurie Daley said.


Aaron Woods and Boyd Cordner made their State of Origin debuts this year and they were members of these squads in previous years.


I am very excited about this years group. a player like Dylan Walker, who has progressed through Holden Cup, VB NSW Cup and made his NRL debut in a star-studded South Sydney side in just one year, is someone Blues fans should be keeping an eye on.


Several players from the group have already had NRL experience in Luke Brooks, Kelepi Tanginoa, Jake Trbojevic, Clinton Gutherson and Dylan Walker with a number of other participants expected to debut in season 2014.



The 2014 Under 20s Origin Pathway Camp squad is as follows: Tevita Pangai, Trent Schuback, Danny Fualalo, Adam Elliott, Brendan Cox, Clinton Gutherson, Rhys Armstrong, Jake Trbojevic, Dean Britt, Rhys Kennedy, Matt Lodge, Jake Mamo, Sione Matutia, Ryan Matterson, Kelepi Tanginoa, Robert Jennings, Bryce Cartwright, Oliver Clark, Myles Taueli, Chris Smith, Alex Johnston, Dylan Walker, Aaron Gray, Cameron McGuiness, Euan Aitken, Drew Hutchison, Jack Bird, Shannon Crook, Jackson Hastings, Taane Milne, Tyler Cornish, Willis Meehan, Alex Thomas, Bradley Dietz, Mitchell Moses, Luke Brooks, Salesi Funaki
