Lockie uncertain whether Cobbo is real, wants Daily Burton as blues center



Queensland selector Darren Locke’s 19-year-old Broncos have poured cold water on the possibility of young gunman Selvin Cobo joining the Maroon team.

The teenage winger has shone for Brisbane this season, making nine attempts in 11 games and bringing his career tally to 11 in just 18 games.

However, Lockyer said in a 100% footnote that Queensland needed to be careful that they did not throw him into the Origin Caldron too soon.

“There are some young boys out there who are showing a lot of potential but Origin has gone one step further. A lot can change in seven days, ”he said.

“You have to understand that guys like Selouin Kobbo who are superstars in the making, you have to make sure they are ready for it.

“He’s a very comfortable player but going to the Blues’ first game in Sydney is a big challenge. I’m not saying he’s not accepting it but you have to consider a lot.

“Just because they’re playing well and they’re young at their club, it doesn’t always translate to playing well at that stage.”

Cowboys winger Kyle Feld was out of controversy after a knee injury over the weekend so teammates Valentine Holmes and Hamiso Tabui-Fido Dan Gagai and Javier Coates are expected to fill the outfield with veteran Corey Oates.

Oates has made 10 tries for Brisbane since being in and out of the team last season.

Lockyer hinted that if Cobo and Cowboys did not line up Game-Day for 19-year-old forward Jeremiah Nanai 18, they could be in the 22-member extended squad.

The Daily Blues are called upon to pick Burton at the center

Former NSW coach Laurie Daly believes the Blues should bring Matt Burton to the center before Cotoni Stags because they want to lift the Origin Shield for the fourth time in five years.

Deli said most of the team chose themselves but “the center position was tough, the back row was a bit tough and then just to get 14 [bench utility].

“Stephen Crichton must be one and I will keep him [Brian] To’o. I wanted to find a place for Matt Burton so I dropped the Cotoni Stags, “he said at Big Sports Breakfast on Tuesday.

“He was the Daly M Center of the Year last year. He’s still playing good football and he’s got that combination with the Penrith boys.”

Daly said Stags was unlucky to miss the cut in his team and would be happier if he actually got a place, but said he would have to “find a place for Burton”.

He believes Dragon veteran Tariq Sims should get a bench spot because he can play on the edge and in the middle, Iles prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard should be given a recall after four years out of Origin, and Raiders star Jack Whitton at Cronula Utility Nico Hine for NSW. Should be removed. Eglas.
