MANY said he should have been in the NSW Origin side last year but now James Maloney has a chance to impress coach Ricky Stuart in 2012 after being named to attend an emerging Blues Origin camp in Sydney next week.

The five-eighth played a key role in the Warriors' march to the NRL grand final and it sparked a bidding war for his services in 2013 - he's already signed to join the Sydney Roosters next year.

The players will enter camp with former Blues forwards Glen Lazarus and Steven Roach next Friday at Coogee for a weekend of skills sessions, lectures and team building activities.

Emerging Blues Origin squad

Terry Campese (Canberra), Jarrod Croker (Canberra), Blake Ferguson (Canberra), Josh McCrone (Canberra), Joel Thompson (Canberra), Andrew Fifita (Cronulla), Luke Douglas (Gold Coast), Ryan James (Gold Coast), Darcy Lussick (Manly), Tony Williams (Manly), Ryan Hinchcliffe (Melbourne), Tariq Sims (North Queensland), Lachlan Coote (Penrith), Michael Gordon (Penrith), Tim Grant (Penrith), Dan Hunt (St George Illawarra), Trent Merrin (St George Illawarra), Kyle Stanley (St George Illawarra), Joseph Leilua (Roosters), James Maloney (Warriors), Blake Ayshford (Wests Tigers), Tim Moltzen (Wests Tigers), Aaron Woods (Wests Tigers).
