Kangaroos captain Cameron Smith has had a swipe at former Maroons teammate Chris McQueen for switching allegiance to England for the Four Nations.
Smith reckons a young Englishman should be getting a chance instead.
“It’s a bit weird, given that he’s played State of Origin,’’ Smith told The Daily Telegraph.
“[England coach] Wayne [Bennett]’s clever. He finds a way to get the best team on the park.
“I’d probably prefer to see a young Englishman get an opportunity because that’s where the future is, around the kids playing our game.”
The England team is officially announced next week.
