Wally Lewis, H&H, Gene Miles at first workshop, 2015

King Wally Lewis and his best mate Gene Miles turned up unannounced at the first workshop  to see what State of Origin The Musical was all about.
They stayed for an hour.
After one rousing song Gene Miles leapt out of his seat and shouted: “Give me the ball, I’m gonna take it up!”
All the actors said it was a thrill – but also rather intimidating – to meet the real men.
