I thought the criteria to qualify was where you played your first game of RL(in Aus) and not necessarily where u was born. Adrian Lam played for Queensland but was from PNG, although I don’t know of any other “foreigner” to play in state of origin.


He would have to make himself available for Australia too I think (rule changed a while ago) which now he can't.

I THINK that's the ruling. Sure it was mentioned when Tamou played for NSW despite being a Kiwi

Supporters at Wigan were only calling him because of him being inconsistent, but always getting selected even if he had poor game or two.

Something, a player cannot do at a Aussie club as there is more than likely, other players in the squad ready to take their place if they are not consistent, especially if the player is British.
