Jack Wighton's Canberra teammates have backed the five-eighth to make his State of Origin debut next month after a stellar start to the NRL season.

The 26-year-old Wighton has been close to a NSW berth before and a successful transition from fullback to the halves in 2019 could make his versatility irresistible to Blues coach Brad Fittler.

Wighton is averaging the most run metres per game (78) of any five-eighth in the competition and sits third in tackle busts (24) - but is also third in errors (19) for all players.
