James Tedesco is on standby for the Blues after a possible quad injury to Dylan Edwards.

Dylan Edwards is doubtful for Wednesday’s State of Origin series opener after suffering a possible quad injury during training on Saturday. The Panthers fullback is awaiting scan results, and former NSW skipper James Tedesco is on standby. A final decision is expected on Sunday before the Roosters’ clash with the Cowboys, which Tedesco would miss if called into the squad. Maguire told The Sydney Morning Herald that putting Tedesco on standby is “just precautionary.” He explained, “The doctors and physios are discussing it, and we have very qualified people assessing the situation. They said we will get a better indicator in about 12-18 hours. I spoke to Teddy, and he’s very keen to play. It’s just a matter of working through it and making a call in the morning.”
