As State of Origin Game One draws closer, the competition for spots in the Blues side continues to heat up.

Blues coach Laurie Daley has a number of different players under consideration for a place in the New South Wales halves with Matt Moylan, Adam Reynolds, James Maloney and Mitchell Pearce mentioned by the coach as possible candidates.

Moylan in particular impressed in his Origin debut last year and Daley (pictured) says, at this stage, the Penrith star would appear to have the advantage over the other three.
