Golden Point: Paul Gallen’s role in Maroons securing Val Holmes, bad blood banished from Queensland camp

Holmes last ran onto Suncorp Stadium in 2013 in an under 18s Origin curtain raiser for Queensland, but a year later was almost lured across the ditch and into black and white by Stephen Kearney.

This week in Golden Point, the history behind the Munster-Holmes rivalry, the punted skipper back in his club’s good books and an 18-year-old Bunny tipping the scales at 150 kegs.

A reasonable eligibility stink ensued in late 2014 when the Junior Kangaroos named him for a train on squad one day, and the next New Zealand did the same with their own Four Nations travelling party.
