Greg Inglis has lifted the lid on the circumstances that saw him declare his allegiance to Queensland.

Despite being born on Bowraville in New South Wales, the Dhungutti man has been a proud member of the Maroons State of Origin side since 2006.

Speaking on Fox Sports, the South Sydney skipper (pictured) says his allegiance to Qld was decided while he was attending high school in Brisbane as a youngster yet to make his debut for the Melbourne Storm.
