Our NSW VB Blues coach Laurie Daley has had his say on team selections, tactics and the style his side will demonstrate ahead of their first Origin match of the 2016 series.

In the eighth instalment of Daley News for 2016, Laurie discusses his new-look halves pairing, his options on the bench, the use of Dylan Walker and more.

Each week in the lead up to and across the 2016 Origin series, True Blue Steve "Blocker" Roach will ask Daley the toughest questions. Catch it every week exclusively on www.NSWRL.com.au.

Don't forget, you too can ask Laurie your pressing Origin questions via the @NSWRL Twitter account. Use the #DaleyNews hashtag to potentially have your question put to our VB Blues coach.
