Holmes needs to show he wants Origin: Qld

Now Walters wants Holmes to show him how much a Maroons jersey means to him after a controversial NFL trial in the United States.

Cronulla's Holmes is again eligible for Queensland duty after being included in Walters' 2017 Emerging Maroons squad.

Holmes was among eight players slapped with 12-month Origin bans for breaking curfew at January's Emerging Maroons camp.

Walters said there were no hard feelings with Holmes over the camp controversy.

Rookies to bring new edge to Kangaroos

Holmes, Boyd and Frizell on Friday were named to make their Australian debuts in Saturday's international against New Zealand at Perth's nib Stadium.

The selections continue a transformation of the Australian team under Meninga after his choice of four debutants in May for his first Test in charge of the Kangaroos.

"Shannon, Tyson and Valentine have all added a new dimension to our team with their enthusiasm and excitement," Meninga said on Friday.

"We have a big Kiwis pack, we will be out to match that and big Boydy is a big part of that.

Origin ban changed Holmes' Kangaroos focus

Holmes was fined for public nuisance and obstructing police in Brisbane on a night when he also broke curfew during a Maroons Emerging Origin Squad camp. 

The Sharks winger was one of eight players banned by Queensland Rugby League and as a result, Holmes was also excluded from playing at the Auckland Nines.

Eight months later and after winning an NRL Telstra Premiership win with the Sharks, Holmes will likely make his representative debut for Australia at the upcoming Four Nations after being picked in coach Mal Meninga's 24-man squad.
