Shawn Blore

NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler has named Wests Tigers youngsters Shawn Blore, Tommy Talau and Stefano Utoikamanu in the 2021 Emerging Blues squad.

The players will join Fittler and the rest the squad on Saturday at the NSWRL's centre of excellence.

The annual camp will take place in a reduced format, with players from only NSW and ACT based clubs selected due to COVID restrictions.

Although being named in the squad is only the first step towards the State of Origin arena, it’s a great opportunity for players to learn off some of the best minds in the game.

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Shawn, Stefano and Tommy on their selection and recognition as some of the best young talent in NSW!
