Sharks Jayson Bukuya and Valentine Holmes have been named in the QAS Emerging Origin camp in Brisbane later this month.
Maroons coach Kevin Walters this afternoon named the 20 man squad, saying the camp will provide a good opportunity for the young players upon the path to Origin football.
“It’s always good to bring young blood through pathway programs like these,” Walters said.
"Identifying that talent early, getting them in together and getting them around the camp environment is the main objective. Introducing them to the Origin staff in some capacity is another major benefit as well.
"We’re always eager to look at the next generation of players coming through and the best way to do it is through these camps.”
