Paul Gallen has been called up to play for City against Country

PAUL Gallen is set to step out of representative retirement after being approached by the NSWRL to play in next week’s City-Country Origin fixture.

The former NSW State of Origin and current Cronulla captain was asked by City Origin coach Brad Fittler last week if he would consider being chosen for the Mudgee clash to be held on May 7.

This year’s City-Country Origin will be the last instalment of the annual representative fixture.

The NSWRL want Gallen to be chosen in the City Origin team to act as a mentor for the next-generation players while the call-up would also be an opportunity for the premiership-winner to give back to the game.
