James Tedesco will play anywhere to make his State of Origin debut for NSW, but admits fullback is his best spot.The Wests Tigers star No.1 is considered a strong chance of finally breaking into the Blues team for the Origin dead rubber in Sydney on Wednesday week.However his belated opportunity could come on the wing in place of Blake Ferguson, with coach Laurie Daley understood to be hesitant to axe incumbent Matt Moylan in his rookie series.Tedesco said he just wants to pull on the Blues jumper for the first time, but was quick to remind selectors of where he considers his best position to be.If I do get any chance to play Origin and put on that jersey, its a great opportunity. But Im definitely more comfortable at fullback and thats where I think I play my best footy, Tedesco told AAP.The 23-year-old claimed a points decision victory over his NSW rival in the Tigers 34-26 win over Penrith on Saturday night, setting up two crucial tries either side of halftime in a strong outing.Tedesco burned fellow Blues hopeful Bryce Cartwright on both occasions, exposing the Panthers lack of pace as a fill-in five-eighth that could deny him his own Origin debut.The Tigers fullback admitted targeting Cartwright was a pre-meditated move.We know hes more of a back-rower and hes probably not suited to checking and releasing. So the plan was to use my speed out there to get on the outside of him and that worked a few times, Tedesco said.In what was the first career meeting between Tedesco and Moylan, the Panthers skipper also put his stamp on the game with two try involvements that set up an early lead.The only other time the pair have met was in a NSW City Origin camp in 2015, when Moylan played fullback and Tedesco was experimented with on the wing.Tedesco said it was his only game on the flanks since the start of his career in 2012.Tim Moltzen was playing fullback and I was coming back from a knee reconstruction and I was starting on the wing and drifting, I swapped with him for a few games, he said.And then he did his knee as well so I started at fullback after that and havent been back since.Meanwhile veteran Greg Bird is another who faces the chop as the Blues seek to bring in some more new blood.Cronulla forward Wade Graham is a strong candidate to take his place, which would lift the Blues number of Origin debutants this series to eight.Possible NSW side: Matt Moylan, James Tedesco, Michael Jennings, Dylan Walker, Josh Mansour, James Maloney, Adam Reynolds, Aaron Woods, Robbie Farah, James Tamou, Josh Jackson, Tyson Frizell, Paul Gallen. Interchange: David Klemmer, Andrew Fifita, Wade Graham, Jack Bird. Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play.

LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. SALT LAKE CITY -- One positive side effect has materialized for the Utah Jazz from battling injuries early in the season. The Jazz bench is stronger and ready to make major contributions than at any time in the past few seasons.Utah will need those contributions when it hosts the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena.Eleven different players have started two or more games for Utah this season. Those eleven players are all averaging at least 18 minutes on the court per game. What it means for the Jazz is that they are a team thats can utilize a bench flush with players already used to playing major minutes together.It helps, guard Rodney Hood said. When you got a guy thats playing starter minutes, and then he goes back to the second unit, hes definitely much better and much more confident in certain situations. It will be great to see how it comes to fruition.The bench played a key part in helping Utah overwhelm Oklahoma City 109-89 on Wednesday night. The Jazz outscored the Thunder 45-38 in bench points. Utahs second unit shot 17-for-28 (60.7 percent) from the field -- including 7-of-9 from 3-point range.Reserve guards Joe Ingles and Shelvin Mack did the most damage. The duo combined for 26 points on 9 of 11 shooting, nine rebounds and eight assists.Such hot shooting is not a new development. As a team, Utah (16-10) ranks fourth in the NBA in field goal percentage (.468). The Jazz shot 42 of 72 (58.3 percent) from the field against Oklahoma City.Its nice to see it go down for everyone, Ingles said. It gives everyone else confidence. We started out moving the ball, got some good looks early and it continued for the (whole) game. When yoou got a team thats so unselfish, and everyone moves the ball, it makes life easy.ddddddddddddStopping Utahs hot shooting offense will certainly be a chore for the Mavericks. Dallas could not do it in a 97-81 loss to the Jazz on Nov. 2. Playing without injured leading scorer Gordon Hayward, Utah shot 12 of 25 (48 percent) from 3-point range and led by as many as 20 points in the contest.It doesnt help that the Mavericks are being attacked by the injury bug. Dallas (6-19) is playing without Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles strain), Andrew Bogut (knee) and J.J. Barea (calf strain). Salah Mejri could be joining them on the sidelines after leaving during the fourth quarter of Wednesday nights 95-85 loss to the Detroit Pistons.Nowitzki has been out 17 games, Barea has been sidelined for 14 games and Bogut has been out for four contests. Deron Williams also missed eight games with a calf strain earlier in the season. The lack of healthy players has made it tough for Dallas to generate positive momentum.It showed against the Pistons. Detroit overcame a 12-point deficit in the third quarter, and a season-high 19 turnovers, to run away from the Mavericks.Obviously, its frustrating, guard Wesley Matthews said. We fought hard tonight, but a couple of sloppy plays, scoring drought, and it wasnt from a lack of effort. Well look at where things went wrong and get ready to go back and get it back in Utah.Dallas has won 10 of the last 13 games with Utah overall. The Jazz hold the upper hand recently, however, winning two of the last three in the series.
