Reynolds hasn't given up NSW Origin hope

Adam Reynolds' name may have been largely forgotten in State of Origin selection speculation but the South Sydney halfback hasn't forgotten the Blues.

With Mitchell Pearce ruled out and rookie Nathan Cleary battling to overcome injury, Reynolds is the only former NSW No.7 getting regular game time in the halves in the NRL.

"I would love to be back there playing Origin. Every year it's something that I look forward to, either being a part of it or watching," Reynolds said.
