"He'll do a great job"

With Queensland looking to level this year's State of Origin series, Tim Glasby could be the man Kevin Walters turns to in order to bolster the Maroons' forward pack.

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Ryan Hoffman echoed the thoughts of his skipper three days earlier in endorsing Glasby for an Origin recall.

"Certainly Tim does a job every time he goes on the field," Hoffman said.

"He did a great job for Queensland last year.

"I can't see why he wouldn't do a good job for Queensland this year."

Glasby made his Origin debut last season in Game 2 of the series and also featured in the decider where Queensland claimed a famous come from behind series victory.

Melbourne Captain Cameron Smith was quizzed on the form of Glasby following Storm's win over the Broncos in Round 14 where the 29-year old ran for 95 metres, made 28 tackles and secured a try assist.

"I think Tim has proven he is a great defender, he is a very reliable defender and he's pretty handy with the football as well," Smith said on Sunday.

"He's as effective any player playing in his position at the moment.

"I'm not too sure what Kevin's thinking. Whether a change is needed in there I'm not too sure.

"But if you put Tim Glasby in – he'll do a great job."
