James Tedesco furore shut down after NRL fans question rules around State of Origin recall

The rules around James Tedesco’s recall to the NSW State of Origin team have been explained, after some in the NRL world questioned why he was able to come in considering he wasn’t in the 20-man squad. Tedesco won a stunning recall to the Blues team on Sunday after Dylan Edwards was ruled out with a quad injury suffered at training.

Tedesco was initially dumped as fullback and captain when coach Michael Maguire picked his team for Game I last weekend. Maguire went with the red-hot Edwards instead, and Tedesco was left out of the squad altogether.

But with the Blues not willing to risk an underdone Edwards in the opening game on Wednesday night, Tedesco was parachuted straight back in. NSW had to get a special exemption from the Australian Rugby League Commission to bring Tedesco back in because he wasn’t part of their 20-man squad.
