Three Eels named in NSW Under 20 squad to face Queensland

Congratulations to Parramatta Eels players Oregon Kaufusi, Stefano Utoikamanu and Ethan Parry who have today been named in the CABE NSW Under-20 squad to face Queensland in the State of Origin double-header at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday 10 July.

The three Blue & Gold representatives will play before Game Three of the Holden State of Origin series decider.

They are the three Eel representatives in the 20 man squad to be coached by True Blue Mark O’Meley.

NSW will be hoping to avenge last year’s 30-12 loss to Queensland at Suncorp Stadium which was their first loss since the Under-20 concept started in 2012.

The team will assemble in camp on Friday 5 July.
