Gaz & Baz in reckoning
for Origin


New South Wales coach Graham Murray says St George Illawarra duo Mark Gasnier and Trent Barrett should be considered for State of Origin selection regardless of whether they leave the NRL next year.

Barrett is considering a move to the English Super League while Gasnier is weighing up a lucrative offer to switch to rugby union. Speaking at the launch of the representative season today, Murray says the Dragons stars should not be black-banned by selectors this season.
