‘A dream come true’: Boom giant eyeing off debut for Queensland at the end of the yearSeptember 9, 2020
Boom Gold Coast-bound giant Tino Fa’asuamaleaui is eyeing off a State of Origin debut at the end of the year with Queensland which would cap an impressive 2020 for the young prop.
Fa’asuamaleaui is a superstar in the making and has become an integral part of the Melbourne pack this season.
“I just have to keep playing good footy,” he told NRL.com.
“It would be a dream come true. I grew up in Queensland, played for Queensland (at junior level).
“That’s my main goal for this year after trying to win a premiership. It’s sort of one of the goals I’m keeping on the low, trying to get through each week healthy but hopefully my name gets tossed up.”
With the Blues on the cusp of a true dynasty – the development of young Queenslanders like Fa’asuamaleaui is vital to the Maroons’ future.
