Dugan, Hayne in showdown

Thursday, May 15, 2014

SYDNEY - St George Illawarra fullback Josh Dugan is banking on snaring the Blues No.1 spot from Jarryd Hayne with a big game against his Parramatta counterpart on Saturday.

NSW coach Laurie Daley is keeping his selection cards close to his chest, but after his stunning performance against Cronulla on Friday night Hayne looks to have the Blues fullback spot all but nailed down, with Dugan a possibility on the wing.

But Dugan is adamant nothing is for certain.

"It is pretty much just media speculation. I haven't had too much from Loz — I'm not too worried about it at the moment," he said.

"I have to be warranted to get picked and that is my focus at the moment, playing good footy so I do put my hand up.

"It is going to be a good challenge, I always like going up against the big name fullbacks."

Dragons coach Steve Price conceded Dugan dropped his usual high standards in their 38-6 loss to Canterbury on Sunday.

"Jarryd Hayne has been paying really good footy and prior to the weekend's game I thought Josh had been going really well for us," Price said.
