Blues fullback James Tedesco

Tedesco's desire to be world's best

Tedesco may be looking for a confidence boost coming from the struggling Wests Tigers into a star-studded NSW Origin team but confidence doesn't look to be a massive issue as it is for the 25-year-old Camden product as he heads into his second Origin game.

"That was my aspiration at the start of the year [to be the world's best fullback]," Tedesco said from Blues camp in Kingscliff this week.

"With all the dramas [at Wests Tigers] and how we've been going, this year probably hasn't gone the way I hoped but I'll still have those aspirations in the future."
