Parramatta legend Nathan Hindmarsh has named three debutants in his NSW Blues side, interestingly including Bulldogs playmaker Matt Burton in the centres.

Burton was named Dally M Centre of the Year alongside Justin Olam in 2021, but hasn’t played in the outside backs since making the move to the Canterbury-Bankstown club.

The other two debutants he believes should earn their first New South Wwales jersey are Broncos star Kotoni Staggs and Eels gun Ryan Matterson.

Tariq Sims keeps his spot in Hindmarsh’s side, backing coach Brad Fittler to remain loyal to the Dragons forward who has seen a downturn in form.

Meanwhile, Hindmarsh also believes Jack Wighton edges out Nicho Hynes for the hotly contested utility spot.

Jake Trbojevic and Liam Martin take up spots on the bench, while the backline trio of James Tedesco, Brian To’o and Josh Addo-Carr remain.
