Klemmer was among the Blues’ best in the 18-14 loss to Queensland in Game 1 but missed the 38-6 victory in Origin II due to a fractured wrist.

The 25-year-old made a statement with an outstanding performance in the Knights’ 26-12 win over Brisbane on Saturday night in his comeback match.

But as reported by The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield and NRL.com’s Michael Chammas on Sunday night, coach Brad Fittler and the NSW brains trust could controversially snub Klemmer for the July 10 series decider.

Nathan Cleary still a chance for Origin III but David Klemmer no certain selection, suggests Greg Alexander

Nathan Cleary still a chance for Origin III but David Klemmer no certain selection, suggests Greg Alexander Cleary is expected to miss four weeks with an ankle issue while Klemmer will return this weekend after missing Origin II with a broken wrist.

State of Origin: NSW contender Mitchell Pearce reveals Blues regrets. Nathan Cleary still a chance for Origin III but David Klemmer no certain selection, suggests Greg Alexander.

The 30-year-old made his NSW debut as a teenager in 2008 and failed to win an Origin series in seven attempts before he was left out of new coach Brad Fittler’s triumphant squad in 2018. Pearce was the fall guy for many of the Blues ' failures during more than a decade of Queensland dominance.

St George Illawarra and Blues forward Tariq Sims has been charged with grade two dangerous contact charge for his hit on North Queensland playmaker Michael Morgan which sparked a war of words between coaches Paul McGregor and Paul Green.

Sims, who came off the bench in Origin II, plans to fight the charge at the NRL judiciary in a bid to be available for Game 3.

According to the reports, if Sims successfully beats the charge on Tuesday night he will retain his place in the Blues’ final 17-man squad.

Knights prop Daniel Saifiti is also tipped to keep his spot, potentially leaving the high-profile Klemmer on the outer.

Fittler is expected to announce an extended 19-man squad on Monday night.

Injured half-back Nathan Cleary (ankle) will be named but will need to run by Thursday in order to keep his place in the decider.

If Cleary is ruled out the Blues could opt to stick with the halves combination of Wade Graham and James Maloney, who combined well in the second half in Origin II.

Fittler is expected to name a shadow player to cover Cleary, with Knights veteran Mitchell Pearce and Cronulla playmaker Chad Townsend both rumoured to be in contention.
