Booze bans may be considered for future Emerging Origin camps, Queensland Rugby League managing director Robert Moore admits.
Advice from Queensland’s senior players gave new Maroons coach Kevin Walters the conviction to slap bans on another six young guns despite knowing it could sabotage his maiden State of Origin series.
