The Parramatta Eels are pleased to announce four players have been selected for the NSW Blues State of Origin squad.
Coach Brad Fittler has added nine players to his squad today.
Clint Gutherson, Junior Paulo, Nathan Brown, and Reagan Campbell-Gillard are among the additions.
If named in the team, Gutherson, Paulo and Brown will make their State of Origin debuts.
The squad will be added to every Sunday as further teams are eliminated from the NRL finals series and all players who are selected will be permitted to temporarily leave the NRL bubble introduced this season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The players will be required to maintain a level of fitness before re-entering the bubble again for the start of the NSW Origin camp on 19 October.
The opening game of the State of Origin series will be played at Adelaide Oval on 4 November, Game Two will be at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on 11 November and Game Three will be at Suncorp Stadium on 18 November.
