New South Wales manager Brad Fittler is giving nothing away as he plans to name his Origin II squad on Sunday night.
There are rumors that Fittler has made up to five changes to the roster – with Api Koroisau, Jake Trbojevic and Siosifa Talakai reportedly being added.
But when pressed on Nine’s Sunday Footy Show, Fittler neither confirmed nor denied any changes.
It came after cameras showed Penrith players congratulating Koroisau after Saturday’s NRL game.
“He will be in the squad, he will come to Perth,” Fittler said of Koroisau, without saying whether he will be in the starting squad or not.
“Api defends like a backrower. That’s one of Api’s real advantages, not only is he good on the dummy half, but he’s a good defender.”
