Ricky Stuart has named his Blues team to face Queensland in the first State of Origin in Melbourne.

Earlier in the week, Mark "MG" Geyer, Matty Johns and Monday Night Football host Peter Sterling named their Blues side.

Coach Ricky Stuart said it was hard choosing a team but "it's very important at this level we have people challenging for decisions."

Despite being dropped to reserve grade last week, Panthers centre Michael Jennings has made the squad although Stuart said he would decide specific positions on Tuesday.

"Let's hope he [Jennings] gets back to the type of football he can play [and] kick-start a chance to get back playing first grade for Penrith," Stuart told a packed media conference.
