McQueen stung by State of Origin rejection

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/04/2017

Gold Coast forward Chris McQueen says his omission from last year's Queensland State of Origin side has been the catalyst for his decision to play rugby league for England.

"All the suspensions and injuries around Origin last year gave me the realisation that the ship has sailed on representing Queensland and it was time to explore new options," McQueen said.

McQueen, whose father was born in England, has been named in the England squad to take on Samoa.
