The Queensland Rugby League has announced its 2017 QAS Emerging Origin squad.
The 20-man squad, which will assemble in late January, includes four newcomers to the senior Emerging camp – Coen Hess, Felise Kaufusi, Ashley Taylor and Christian Welch.
“"The pathway programs we have available through the QAS are second to none and this is another fantastic opportunity to look at the next generation of players coming through," Maroons head coach Kevin Walters said today.
"This year we saw Corey Oates and Justin O'Neill grab their opportunity at Origin level and I'm sure there will be other players from this program who will make a strong case for selection in 2017."
