Manly Warringah Sea Eagles prop Nate Myles is on the verge of joining Queensland league ‘royalty’ in Wally Lewis.
Myles has been named in the Maroons team to play NSW Blues in the opening game of the State of Origin series at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday, May 31.
The respected prop has played 30 games for Queensland since 2006 and will join Immortal, Wally Lewis, on 31 games when he tackles NSW.
Myles today was cleared of any serious injury after copping a knock to his left knee in Manly’s win over Gold Coast Titans on Saturday night.
Current Queensland and Australian Test Captain Cameron Smith holds the record for most games for the Maroons with 38.
