NSW City Origin training at Pepper Stadium

Marketo's City berth boosts NRL fortunes

St George Illawarra utility Jake Marketo plans on using his shock City Origin selection to show he is ready for a first grade return at the Dragons.

Marketo is yet to play in the NRL in 2017 but will get the chance to play alongside permanent Red V forward fixtures Jack de Belin, Tariq Sims and Paul Vaughan in Mudgee on Sunday afternoon.
