The Triple M call team have taken a look at players in contention for a Blues spot, with just over a week until the team will be named for Origin I.

And Triple M's Ryan Girdler has come up with one hell of a big call, tipping this to be the rise of Jake Trbojevic - even going as far as to name him as captain.

"Paul Vaughan is knocking down the door at the moment," Girds said.

"I have to see where Woods is, and you've obviously got Klemmer there as well. You've got Shannon Boyd.

"I tell you what, one guy that's definitely going to be in my team and is going to be starting is Jake Trbojevic - and he could even be captain.

"I think at this point, we need to give the leadership to someone who is going to be around for a long time, and we need someone who can speak really well and sit up there with the likes of Cameron Smith.

"Not that Boyd Cordner and Woodsy don't, but I just think that this guy is in the Australian side and I just thought his game - for one of his first test matches - some of his touches were just brilliant.

"I think he's going to be on the rep scene for a long time to come, and he'd be in my 13."
