Hayne's push for Origin recall

JARRYD Hayne will use the Titans' Saturday night clash with Melbourne to push his claims for a recall to the NSW team for Origin I

Hayne will line up against the Storm's Queensland centre Will Chambers who has been the NRL's form centre, averaging 134m and 19 tackles per match in 2017.

Two weeks ago Hayne dominated Maroons' Origin hopeful Dane Gagai scoring two tries in Gold Coast's easy win.

Gold Coast coach Neil Henry said an in-form Hayne would boost the Blues.

"History says he (Hayne) can play in the centres, he's done that before," Henry said.

"It's a nice headache for Laurie (Daley) to have. They've got quite a few candidates for fullback so I think their backline could be very strong."

Henry has backed Hayne for Origin selection since his return from injury, saying he has the history and ability to perform on the biggest stage.
