McQueen to fill big shoes

Aap
Tuesday, May 27, 2014

GOLD COAST- Receiving the No.18 Queensland jersey usually means the player has been earmarked for the future by Maroons coach Mal Meninga.

But South Sydney backrower Chris McQueen will wear it in what looms as an emotional nod to the past in tomorrow night's State of Origin opening game in Brisbane.

McQueen has not been able to crack the Rabbitohs' starting side this NRL season.

But loyalty has ensured incumbent McQueen will not only start for Queensland as they launch their quest for nine straight series wins but attempt to fill some very big shoes indeed.

McQueen will don the No.18 jersey after number 11 was retired for the Origin opener to honour the late Arthur Beetson in what will be the interstate series' 100th game.
