McGuire may get a start

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

MA­ROONS coach Kevin Wal­ters has left the door open for Josh McGuire to play his way into a maiden start­ing jersey.

McGuire will clash with Manly’s 29-game Queens­land vet­eran Nate Myles at Sun­corp Sta­dium on Satur­day night in a show­down that could de­fine the Ma­roons’ front row.

The Bron­cos prop has made a re­mark­able re­turn from an achilles in­jury this year, earn­ing a Kan­ga­roos de­but last Fri­day against New Zealand.

McGuire is a cer­tainty to be in Wal­ters’ team for the se­ries opener on June 1 but is likely to come off the bench, as he did in two Ori­gin matches last year.

Myles has been a main­stay of Queens­land’s for­ward pack dur­ing an out­stand­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive ca­reer that has seen him miss just one Ori­gin since de­but­ing in 2006.
