Tigers fullback James Tedesco has largely been considered a shoe-in for the Blues fullback spot, however it seems like the Raiders' Jack Wighton may just beat him to it.
According to smh.com.au, Queensland coach Kevvie Walters reckons Wighton should be in the mix for the spot.
"Jack's played some rep footy before. He's a player with an enormous amount of ability. There's probably half a dozen fullbacks there that could safely wear the Blues jumper and do it proud," Walters said.
"Certainly Jack's one of those. I'm sure Laurie wouldn't have hesitation in playing him in that position for NSW."
We'll have the chance this weekend to see the two candidates face-off at Canberra Stadium on Sunday, 4pm. Listen live to the call on Triple M.
