Melbourne Storm Captain Cameron Smith has given in form centre Will Chambers a glowing endorsement ahead of the representative season.
Chambers has featured in all of Storm's matches in 2015 and his strong form has the outside back pushing for higher honours. The 25-year old has scored six tries in the opening seven rounds of the season with his captain Smith believing the Storm number three would not be out of place in not only a Queensland jersey but also the green and gold for Australia at international level.
"I think he's taken his game to another level this year, he took huge steps last year," Smith said when asked about Chambers after his side's one-point victory over the Sydney Roosters in Round 7.

"When he got an opportunity to play State of Origin I think it gave him a lot of confidence.
"I know the representative period is coming up at the moment, he's certainly going to be well in the mix for Origin but I think his name needs to be involved in discussions for the Australian side.
"I'd be putting his name forward for a green and gold jumper for sure."
Chambers made his Origin debut for the Maroons in 2014, playing in game three at Suncorp Stadium, the Maroons' only victory of the series. After a strong season at Club level the skilful centre was also included in the Kangaroos preliminary squad for the end of year Four Nations tournament featuring in a Prime Minister's XIII lead up match against PNG.
