MAL Meninga will be able to trans­fer many of his suc­cess­ful meth­ods in stir­ring a Queens­land State of Ori­gin team cul­ture to his new role at the Ti­tans, say Ma­roons vet­er­ans.

Meninga is join­ing the Ti­tans as head of per­for­mance and cul­ture, while re­main­ing as Kan­ga­roos coach.

Meninga laid out for his 2006 Queens­land play­ers the keys to be­com­ing a win­ning Ori­gin team prior to their streak of nine se­ries in 10 years un­der his coach­ing.

Meninga, 58, stressed last week that ac­count­abil­ity of play­ers was para­mount in his strat­egy at the Gold Coast.

Brent Tate, who played in five se­ries wins for Meninga, said big Mal asked the Ma­roons how they “wanted to be re­garded by the Queens­land pub­lic, what we stood for as a team’’.
