Blues take time out to inspire local school students

NSW Blues players will today put their State of Origin preparations on hold to step back into the classroom and inspire local students.

Players will visit two Coffs Coast schools, Orara High School and Woolgoolga Public from 2pm.

The school visits have been arranged by ETC, one of the sponsors of the Blues Harbour State of Origin training camps in Coffs Harbour.

Winger Will Hopoate said there is a good feeling in the team, which is looking to level the series in Melbourne next Wednesday night.

"There is great belief here and we are confident in what we can do so it all starts with the preparation," Hopoate said.
