McQueen wants to play for England

Gold Coast forward Chris McQueen has put his hand up to play for England.

McQueen, who was born and raised in Queensland, is eligible for England through his father who was born in London.

The 28-year old has played six State of Origin games for Queensland but not represented Australia.

“I have played Origin, won a grand final and won the World Club Challenge, but the only thing I haven’t done is play Test football,” McQueen told The Courier Mail.

“If I pledged my allegiance to England, it would rule me out of Queensland.

“That would be tough, but if Wayne gave me the opportunity, I couldn’t see myself saying no.”

McQueen was sounded out about playing for Enland three years ago under Steve McNamara.

“My old man was born in England and lived there until he was 10. His whole family are from England and they moved out here in 1969, but they are still proud Poms,” he said.

“When I played for Queensland, Dad was right behind me, but if I pulled an England jersey on, my whole family would be proud.”
