Junior Paulo promoted to Blues' starting side

Parramatta Eels prop Junior Paulo has been promoted to the NSW Blues' starting line-up for State of Origin Game Two.

The Blues have named their 17 man team to take on the Queensland Maroons and wrap up the series at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday 27 June at 7:50pm.

Paulo comes into the run-on side for the injured Jake Trbojevic.

Angus Crichton moves to Paulo's spot on the bench.

They're the only two changes to Coach Brad Fittler's Game One team, which beat the Maroons 50-6 in Townsville.

27-year-old Paulo started Game One from the bench, where he provided plenty of punch.

He played 32 minutes, made six runs, three hit-ups, 89 run metres, including 32 post-contact metres and two tackle breaks.

The Blues arrived in camp yesterday at Kingscliff on NSW's far north coast ahead of kick-off on Sunday.
