DRAGONS prop James Graham says he has no problem with his teammates publicly stating their Origin intentions as the selection battle prepares to go into overdrive.
The Dragons have as many as six stars in contention, including the entire starting forward pack other than the English hardman himself.
The likes of Jack de Belin and Tariq Sims have been vocal in their pitch for the Blues and its with the full backing of Graham.
“I don't have a problem at all if individuals want to play it down or if they want to say 'hey I'm ready’,” Graham said.
“I don't think they'd be the first people to say that.
"I have been delighted for my teammates to be spoken about in such high regard and it is all deserved as well.
"I have been so impressed about how everyone has gone about their business, it is a credit to them. I am fully behind each and every one of their campaigns to get selected.
"I think if they keep doing the team-first actions that will go a long way these next two weeks."
