Did NSW Blues warrior Mitch Barnett get his state debut after comments made in team’s loss to Bulldogs?


New South Wales enforcer Mitch Barnett may have finally earned his State of Origin debut in Game III comments he made after his New Zealand Warriors’ heartbreaking field-goal loss to Canterbury on the weekend.

“I’m usually a negative sort of person but after that I was so proud of them,” Barnett told The NZ Herald.

“Everyone had their heads down – I said ‘Get your heads up’.

“If we show that energy and that attitude towards training then results will turn in our favour.

“We got a great response there, we are not happy with losing, it’s okay to be disappointed but we just need to stay in the fight and it will turn.”
