Gidley out of Origin I

KNIGHTS captain Kurt Gidley has been ruled out of the opening State of Origin game due to a foot injury sustained in Newcastle’s 28-12 loss to the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday.

Gidley had been named on the NSW bench for the Origin-series opener against Queensland at ANZ Stadium on June 5.

NSW coach Laurie Daley will name a replacement for Gidley on Tuesday.
