Matterson joins Blues squad as 18th Man

Wests Tigers forward Ryan Matterson has been again called in to New South Wales Blues Origin camp as 18th Man.

One of the form forwards of the competition this season, Matterson featured as 18th Man for the Blues in their Game One preparations and will again assume the role, with Parramatta Eels fullback Clint Gutherson also joining the squad as 19th Man.

Both players are yet to debut for the New South Wales Blues and are expected to attend training in Western Australia on Wednesday, June 19.

Game Two of the 2019 State of Origin series will be played at Optus Stadium in Perth on Sunday, June 23 as Queensland look to clinch the series back from New South Wales after winning Game One at Suncorp Stadium.
