Mbye named in extended Queensland squad for 2020

Wests Tigers captain Moses Mbye has been named as part of an extended 33-man Queensland squad ahead of the 2020 State of Origin series by Maroons Coach Kevin Walters.

The 26-year-old Mbye, who made his Origin debut for Queensland last year and played all three games of the series, has been named as part of a new-look squad which contains 10 players yet to make their State of Origin debut.

Mbye is not the only Wests Tigers player selected in Maroons colours in 2020, with Development Player Jake Simpkin selected in the Emerging Maroons following a superb season with Wynnum-Manly in the Auswide Bank Mal Meninga Cup.

Simpkin starred for the Queensland U/18's side in their win over New South Wales in 2019 and has been earmarked by the Maroons as a player for the future.

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Moses and Jake on their selection!
