Latrell Mitchell Ruled Out Of State Of Origin One

Latrell Mitchell has been forced to withdraw from the New South Wales team for State Of Origin one after suffering a calf injury.

Stephen Crichton will m Ove into the starting side with Bulldogs half Matt Burton called into the New South Wales squad as 18th man.

While Crichton is a very handy replacement, it is a blow to the Blues side. Latrell is fantastic at representative level in the centres and he was always going to be a handful for Queensland in game one.

Still, Crichton and winger Brian To’o have a brilliant partnership at club level, and will no doubt play great on Wednesday night in Adelaide.

With all of these moves happening, I can’t help feel sorry for South Sydney and test centre Campbell Graham.
