Moeaki Fotuaika says he just wants to make his state and his family proud.
Selected to potentially play his second game for Queensland, the Titans front-rower is ready to have an impact on the 2021 State of Origin Series.
"I'm definitely excited and I can't wait for the week in camp," Fotuaika said.
Fotuaika played 26 minutes off the interchange bench in the second game of last years series, making his state debut.
Having had a taste of the representative arena, Fotuaika says he's ready for what's to come should he be picked in the team for game one.
"There were definitely a few nerves there throughout the week (in the lead up to his debut) and then there was the big crowd and a different atmosphere," he said.
"It is good that I've had that taste and if I do get the opportunity I'll know what to expect.
"It's good to have had the opportunity last year and hopefully I can get another chance this year."
Fotuaika is one of the form front rowers in the competition.
The 21-year-old ran for 223 metres against the Sharks in round 12, backing up a barnstorming performance against the Bulldogs in round 11 (188 run metres and 10 tackle breaks) to highlight his value to his state.
"That's something that I wanted to do this year is just be consistent with my games every week and I thought I've done that the last few weeks.
"It was good to string a couple of good games together and hopefully I can keep building on that."
The Maroons have named a squad, with positions still to be determined for game one.
Fotuaika says that doesn't bother him and he's prepared to do a job whether it is starting or off the bench.
"I'm happy either way, just whatever is best for the team."
