Many rugby league giants are urging the growing Bronco to make his State of Origin debut due to the electric performance of Selwin Cobo for Brisbane this season.
But Queensland selector Darren Locke has expressed doubts about whether the 19-year-old’s acquaintance with Origin will come so soon.
“He’s a very comfortable player, but going to play Blues Game One in Sydney – it’s a big challenge,” he told Lockyer Nine. 100% feet.

“I’m not saying he’s not relying on it, but you have to consider a lot of those things.
“Because they’re playing well … at their club, it can’t always play well on that stage.”
Throughout the Broncos renaissance this season, Cobbo has impressed with his speed, strength and vitality, seeing Kevin Walters’ men climb the stairs to fifth place after 11 rounds in four consecutive victories.
Kobo has made nine attempts in his last five games, including a hat-trick and three doubles.
Kyle Feldt has played two of the three Origin games in 2021 and played in the right wing for the revived Cowboys this season, making seven attempts.
Corey Oats, an experienced preacher with eight Origin games next to his name, has been on the left wing for the Broncos this season, making 10 four-pointers.

Queensland coach Billy Slater has sent Kobo a more promising sign than Lockyer at the Wide World of Sports Billy’s breakdown.
“With age comes youth and excitement, and you get to see the cowboys right now,” Slater said, referring to Kobo and Queensland colleague Jeremiah Nanai.
Galen has raised huge questions in the wake of the storm
“One thing they don’t have experience with. But if you don’t get the chance you won’t get experience.
“It’s not the highlights that Selwyn Cobo and Jeremiah Nanai are making – it’s the effort, the defensive action, getting the ball out of trouble. Good.
“Age is just a number to me if they do those things.”
The Blues squad will be announced on Sunday night and the Maroons squad on Monday morning.
