Blues stunned by Mogg's selection

NSW captain Danny Buderus is shocked Queensland overlooked "an abundance of great fullbacks" to select Canberra bolter Adam Mogg for next week's State of Origin II at Suncorp Stadium.

With Melbourne winger Greg Inglis ruled out yesterday with a back injury, Buderus is surprised the Maroons opted for 28-year-old centre Mogg instead of experienced stars like Canberra's Clinton Schifcofske, Penrith's Rhys Wesser or North Queensland's Matt Bowen, who was dumped after the first game loss.

The NSW hooker says the Blues would target Mogg and attempt to turn his Origin debut into a nightmare.
