Frizell hits the ground running in Coffs Harbour
TYSON Frizell has been rushed into the NSW VB Blues camp in Coffs Harbour this morning after Wade Graham was denied his Origin dream by unsuccessfully defending a careless contact charge at the NRL judiciary last night.
Unfortunately for Graham he won't make his Origin debut on Wednesday night, after the judiciary ruled he should miss a game for a high shot on Johnathan Thurston during the Sharks win over the North Queensland Cowboys on Monday night.
Frizell, who was a member of the Origin I squad, will train with the Blues today.
Keeping up appearances in Coffs Harbour, members of the squd including skipper Paul Gallen, David Klemmer, Blake Ferguson, Andrew Fifita, Jack Bird and Bryce Cartwright yesterday took time of camp to meet with fans.
The players took part in an autograph signing session at Amart Sports, Coffs Harbour.
"We're proud as a business to be able to support Rugby League at all levels, from the stars of Origin all the way through to local teams," Amart Sports general manager of retail Phill Dickson said.
Local clubs and schools are getting kickbacks from all instore purchases, with 5% of sales on a Team Amart card going to shoppers nominated sporting teams.
