Blues non-committal on de Belin selection


//

New South Wales Blues coach Brad Fittler has refused to rule out Jack de Belin from this year's State of Origin side, despite the Dragons star's current court case.

Speaking to Nine News, Fittler stressed that no decision has been made on the 27-year-old with the series still months away.

"It's 111 days away from the first State of Origin," Fittler said.

"A lot will happen between here and there. Everything is considered when we pick the team and that's how we dealt with last year's team.

"We consider everything and like I said there's a lot to go between here and 111 days time."

Despite the allegations facing him, de Belin was cleared to play for the Dragons in 2019 earlier in the week, with the NRL saying he is entitled to the presumption of innocence.

Fittler's stance on the St George Illawarra lock mirrored that of NSWRL chief executive Dave Trodden.

"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. It's hypothetical at the moment," Trodden told AAP.
