Yes, this is still dragging on…
After being told numerous times that Luke Keary qualifies for New South Wales and not for Queensland under the new State Of Origin rules, the Queensland Rugby League have decided to take a new approach.
Queensland international recruitment officer Mal Meninga has even weighed into the debate today saying that there should be some scope to appeal the eligibility rules.
“If I were Laurie (NSW coach Laurie Daley) or a (Blues) selector, I wouldn’t even be thinking about picking Luke Keary,”
This is all becoming a bit of a joke now. The NRL has already ruled that Luke Keary only qualifies for New South Wales based on answers he gave to them.
Because Queensland can’t have him, they are starting to throw their toys out of the pram and cry that the rules need change AGAIN.
Its funny how rules always need changed so that Queensland can select someone that doesn’t qualify for them….
