Manly Warringah Sea Eagles prop Nate Myles has tonight been named in the Qld State of Origin team to play NSW at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday, June 1.
Myles is in his first season at the Sea Eagles and his experience and leadership has already proven vital for the team. His selection follows the announcement of Manly team-mate Dylan Walker in the NSW side.
The 29-year-old has played 29 games for Queensland since making his debut for the Maroons in 2006, helping his state to dominate the Origin series over the past decade.
Manly Assistant Coach Anthony Seibold is the Assistant Coach of the Maroons under Head Coach Kevin Walters.
Anthony is a former NRL and English Super League player who joins the Sea Eagles in 2016 as NRL Assistant Coach.
He spent the past three seasons at the Melbourne Storm as the 2013 Holden Cup Head Coach, and in more recent seasons, as an assistant to Craig Bellamy.
Anthony was Head Coach of the Mackay Cutters in the Intrust Super Qld Cup in 2011-12 and has also worked in the English Super League as an Assistant Coach.
