    THEY are on the cusp of being selected to represent their respective states in what is known as the toughest game of all - State of Origin.

    Here are our top 10, Jamie Buhrer-like State of Origin bolters for 2014.

    BRENTON LAWRENCE – Last season, Lawrence was coming of age. He cemented himself as a dominant forward under Geoff Toovey and Brad Arthur’s tutelage, which saw him picked in Queensland’s emerging Origin squad this year for the first time.

    McCrone lol. If he gets selected NSW will get dusted by 50. And if he gets there it will be by default. As in, a lack of other better players

      I think Guerra is a possibility. Very awkward player. But I don't see how some of the others are bolters? Tariq Sims has been touted as an origin player for years (and may have even been 18th or 19th man??)
