New South Wales and Australian forward James Tamou says he believes Panthers utility Tyrone Peachey  is ready for State of Origin selection.

With Game One now just eight weeks away, speculation has begun to intensify over who will be named in Laurie Daleys team for the first clash on May 31.

Tamou (pictured) has played four games alongside Peachey since joining the Panthers and he says the two time Indigenous All Star is just the type of player the Blues need to get a rare series victory over the Maroons.
