After giving NSW a huge boost with a stunning comeback performance yesterday, Tony Williams provided more hope by predicting Glenn Stewart would also be fit for what he described as the biggest game of his career.
Williams, who wore No.22 in a man-of-the-match effort for Manly, was named alongside Stewart in a 19-man Blues squad for Origin but is certain to play off the interchange bench regardless of the fitness of his injured club teammate.
St George Illawarra back-rower Beau Scott was also added to the NSW team but he is expected to play only if Williams and Stewart are ruled out. Dragons teammate Ben Creagh is likely to make way if both men are declared fit.
