The Unlucky New South Wales XIII

State of Origin is regarded by many as the pinnacle for a rugby league player. Playing for your country should be the highest honour but with the state of International football in disarray in the past, representing their state has been the standout moment in a career for some time. 

Not everyone has the chance to play for their state, despite representing their country, so that begs the question who have been the players deserving of a Blues jersey but unable to reach the feat. Some names on this list have played for the Kangaroos while others are former Dally M winners. 

Now there are conditions for the players selected in this team:

- Must have been eligible for New South Wales in their career

- Never represented their state at the top level 

- Played in the 'NRL Era' at any stage (1998 to present)

So with no more waiting lets look at the 'NSW Unlucky 13.'
