MELBOURNE Storm winger Justin O'Neill is likely to be in Warwick for the unveiling of the Legends Wall at the Warwick Cowboys rugby league  clubhouse on November 17.

O'Neill, who scored a try in this season's Melbourne NRL grand final victory, was born in Warwick and moved with his family to Hughenden as a toddler.

He often speaks of his Warwick heritage with Melbourne Storm communications manager Frank Barrett.

Barrett is originally from Warwick where he played his junior rugby league with Collegians and his first senior footy with the Cowboys.

The Legends Wall will honour players with a Warwick connection who have lived in the area and gone on to represent Queensland and Australia at Origin level or played in the NRL.

 Players to be honoured include Queensland Rugby League Team of the Century forward Mick Madsen, State of Origin original Rohan Hancock, Newcastle coach and former Australian player Wayne Bennett and a team-mate of Bennett from his Collegians and Queensland days, centre Paul Coote.

Simon Scanlan, Brett O'Farrell, Jordan Atkins and O'Neill are four of the most recent NRL players with a Warwick connection.

The Warwick area has three current players in the Australian Jillaroos women's team, Stephanie Hancock, Jo Barrett and Heather Ballinger, who was a boarder at Scots PGC College during secondary school.
