Blues draft Maitua as 18th man June 11, 2007 BULLDOGS forward Reni Maitua has been included in the New South Wales Origin squad as 18th man for game two at Telstra Stadium on Wednesday night. Maitua, who will arrive in camp tonight, will be on stand-by should there be any late injury concerns. The call-up was timely for the Maitua, who celebrates his 25th birthday today. Maitua, who has played one Test for Australia, against New Zealand in the opening game of the 2006 Tri-Nations series, is yet to play for NSW. But he has only a slim chance of making his state debut at Telstra Stadium, with the entire Blues squad emerging unscathed from today's penultimate training session. _______________________________________________________________ Surely Watmough or Gallen would have been a better choice!!
