The article reports that Martin Gleeson is eyeing a place in history by becoming the first Englishman to play State of Origin. The Test centre qualifies for Queensland as he spent his early years living in the state. After moving to Australia as a child, Gleeson joined Slacks Creek in Logan and later represented Brothers St Paul in Woodridge, alongside former Broncos forward Brad Meyers. Gleeson would need officials to reverse their rule which states Origin players must make themselves available for Australia.
