Matty Johns says he'd pick Nick Cotric for NSW Blues

Matty Johns locks in eight players for NSW side, raises concerns over fullback contenders

NICK COTRIC

“I’m hearing people say you don’t want to blood too many rookies, I understand that but we’re not winning series. So are we just going to go with the guys who haven’t done it before?

“Are we going to reward people who have been there and not done it?”

I had a chat to him after his show on Sunday. He said Cotric and Addo-Carr will be the starting wingers. He said NSW need to go in a different direction to players like Dugan and Ferguson. "Put it this way, it's not a coincidence that when Dugan left the Dragons they went up, and when he joined the Sharks they went down" was what he told me. 😂

John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Canberra Raiders winger Nick Cotric eyes Origin 'opportunity of a lifetime'

Rising star Nick Cotric says a State of Origin debut would be "the opportunity of a lifetime" and he will be ready to "take it with both hands" should Brad Fittler come calling. Cotric has been on NSW Blues coach Fittler's radar for months.

"I’ll definitely take it with both hands, the opportunity of a lifetime," Cotric said. "But I’m just focusing each week on our weekend games and doing the best I can for the club.

Don't Cotric and Addo-Carr both play on the left?

Don't get me wrong because Dugan is a douche, but losing/gaining Maloney, Hunt and Graham is a bigger factor on both clubs.

Oooh, that would be lovely to see Cotric in the sky blue.

As long as he doesn't get hurt.

It’s interrelated though. Can’t afford Hunt and Graham while you’re paying Dugan overs.

Canberra Raiders winger Nick Cotric doing his best to dodge Origin hype

Canberra winger Nick Cotric can't sidestep speculation suggesting he's in line for a surprise call-up to the NSW Blues squad but he's taking it in his stride.

"Since I was little kid it was always a dream of mine to pull that Blues jersey on," Cotric said. "I remember watching it as a kid, with the family and friends watching Origin, so it would definitely be a dream of mine."
