Snubbed State of Origin veteran Nathan Hindmarsh has criticised New South Wales selectors over their decision to leave out Andrew Ryan and Willie Mason in their 40-strong provisional league squad.

Hindmarsh, a veteran of six Origin series, says while he's disapopinted not be considered among the 40 best players in the state, he couldn't believe Ryan and Mason were omitted.

With players like Mark O'Meley, Braith Anasta and Craig Fitzgibbon also ignored, the squad represents a changing of the guard following three successive series losses.
