Tedesco Named to Captain NSW for Fourth-Straight Series

Sydney Roosters fullback James Tedesco will lead the Blues as Skipper for the fourth-straight series, after being named in Brad Fittler’s team to face the Queensland Maroons in Origin I.

Since making his Origin debut in 2016, the five-time Jack Gibson Medal winner has claimed seven tries and 13 try assists across 19 appearances for the Blues and will be looking to continue his impressive form in this year’s series.
