NSW Blues star Jake Trbojevic has opened up on how Brad Fittler helped him relax on his return to the State of Origin arena after a « disappointing » game one snub.

Trbojevic, an Origin veteran with 13 appearances, was one of the shock omissions from Fittler’s game one squad, but has been recalled ahead of the do-or-die clash in Perth.
