Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens believes the unlikely State of Origin pairing of Mark Gasnier and Craig Gower could provide a long-term solution to the NSW halves crisis.
Blues selectors have gambled on Test centre Gasnier at pivot, despite the fact he has played just four full games in the position for club side St George Illawarra.
With few five-eighth options available following the representative retirement of the Dragons' Trent Barrett and the poor form of Sydney Roosters playmaker Braith Anasta, Sheens believes the current Blues pairing could become a regular one.
