Qld coach Kevin Walters says the Maroons success is built on selecting players based on character rather than talent.

The Queenslanders were to good again for New South Wales in 2017, despite the now yearly predictions that the Maroons dominance was set to end.

With the Blues once again imploding following a number  of allegations of misbehaviour and discipline problems, Walters (pictured) says the Blues could do worse than adopt Qld’s mantra of character over talent when it comes to contentious selections.
