Wade Graham and David Klemmer left out of NSW team. Daniel Saifiti and Zac Lomax added.
Lomax earnt his spot by being consistent through a bad Dragons season ..and he can kick goals.
Klemmer? played well for the Knights but obviously other forwards must have played better..Unlike T Turbo Klemmer was not picked on his previous reputation.

Graham? not sure about him...He can play but there are other options for the final team and he also was out for some time.

Congrats to Cookie, Cam and Cody who have all been selected! Awesome stuff and it's a great reward for their form. Hard luck to Cammy Graham who has obviously missed. He'll be there in the future.

Looks like a pretty weak Maroons side.

Can Benny weave some magic or will the Blues run away and whitewash them?....
