Bulldogs shine for NSW in Under 19s Origin

The NSW Under 19’s Men’s Origin team claimed their third straight State of Origin win in a 14-10 victory over Queensland last night.

Mitchell Woods had plenty of eyes on him and did not disappoint on the big stage. The young Halfback ran for 109 metres, made 25 tackles, and had a try assist in the close game. Woods was praised for his kicking game and effort by former NSW and Bulldogs player Aaron Woods in the Fox League coverage last night:

“He was outstanding. The carries he had were like front row carries and almost sliced through a couple of times,” said Woods.

“He showed great touch with his grubbers as well and almost set up two tries.”

Fanafou Seve also featured for NSW last night, starting in the front row. Seve, a local junior, has been elevated to the Club's Jersey Flegg squad after a superb season in SG Ball which ended in a Grand Final appearance.

The talented prop was strong with the ball in hand last night and made many crucial tackles to assist NSW in claiming victory.

Back-rower Logan Spinks was also a member of the NSW winning squad and spent an invaluable week in camp. Spinks was a standout in SG Ball this year and has been playing Jersey Flegg recently for the Blue and White.

The three Bulldogs were coached by True Blue and former Canterbury Captain, Andrew Ryan who has now coached the NSW Under 19’s to three straight wins over QLD. Bulldogs 2024 SG Ball Cup Coach and former NSW and Canterbury player, Steve 'Zap' Turner was also a member of Ryan’s coaching staff.

The NSW Under 19’s Women’s team also played a stunning match last night, reclaiming the shield from QLD in a dominant 46-4 win.

While not in the final 17, Bulldog’s Tarsha Gale Cup player’s Abby Aros and Waimarie Martin featured in the NSW squad, spending the week in camp and taking valuable lessons from their Origin experience.
