Several seasons of hard work is finally earning Tim Glasby the recognition he deserves.
This weekend Glasby will join Storm teammate and fellow Rockhampton native Cameron Munster at Queensland’s Emerging Origin Squad training camp in Brisbane.
The 20-man squad is made up of players from 10 NRL clubs who have be ear-marked with showing Origin potential.
The call-up is a just-reward for Glasby who enjoyed a breakout 2015 season, playing every game which culminated in him being named Storm’s Most Improved Player.
Ever the humble-type, the 26 year-old is ready to make the most of the weekend’s opportunity.
“I am really looking forward to it, it is a real honour to be in a squad such as that with good players,” Glasby said.
“I think we’ve got some training sessions, some meetings and that sort of stuff so I’ll just get out, do whatever I need to do and enjoy it.
“These sort of squads are where they see a bit of potential and that sort of stuff so it is nice to see that someone sees a bit of potential in me.”
It would be hard not notice Glasby who has continue to show consistent improvement since making his NRL debut for Storm in 2013.
Now entering his fourth season and with 41 first-grade games under his belt, 2016 looms as an exciting one for the emerging prop.
Luckily for him, competitive football sits just around the corner with Storm playing a trial match against Wests Tigers on February 13 at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
It is a date that cannot come quick enough for a Storm playing group that has worked tirelessly on the training track over summer.
“It is the same every pre-season, you are always ready to play games once they roll around,” Glasby said.
“I think more than anything the boys are just looking forward to putting all the work we’ve done on the training paddock into games.”
