NSW looks for new No.6

Friday, May 30, 2014

BRISBANE- After 16 attempts to discover a halves partnership capable of winning a live State of Origin game in Brisbane, NSW are set to head back to the drawing board for game two in Sydney.

After a superb display on his NSW Origin debut in the No.6 jumper as the Blues held on for a thrilling 12-8 win at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday, Josh Reynolds is facing two games on the sidelines following his lifting tackle on Maroons winger Brent Tate.

The incident occurred in the opening stanza of the Blues' first win in a series opener at Suncorp Stadium in 11 years when Reynolds, assisted by teammate Beau Scott, lifted and drove Tate onto his back.

Scott was hit with a grade one charge and will be free to play in game two should he plead guilty.

Reynolds was immediately slugged with a grade two charge after the game saw him spend two matches on the sidelines with an early plea - three should he fight the sanction and lose.

Reynolds would be unavailable for selection by NSW coach Laurie Daley if they opt to accept the charge.

Reynolds' Bulldogs teammate Trent Hodkinson enjoyed a stellar debut in the halfback role but could find himself lining up alongside a new five-eighth.
