NSW selectors have handed Brett Kimmorley the task of saving this year's Origin series for the Blues in game 2.

Kimmorley - who hasn't played in a State of Origin series since 2005 - will make his 7th appearance in a Blues jumper after Jarrod Mullen was ruled out due to injury.

The Sharks halfback has been MIA in State of Origin since throwing an intercept pass to Matt Bowen in golden-point extra time back in game 1 of the 05 series, which handed QLD a 24-20 victory.

According to the most accurate reporter on the face of the earth, Danny Whistleblower, if Kimmorley keeps the series alive for NSW, a new breakfast cereal may be marketed in his honour.

The name of that cereal? Special BK.

Kimmorley will also be joined in the Blues camp by club teammate and Origin debutant Greg Bird.
