Zac Lomax's Emotional Phone Call With His Parents After State Of Origin Call-Up

Zac Lomax's Emotional Phone Call With His Parents After State Of Origin Call-Up

This is what sport is all about.

Dragons centre Zac Lomax fought back the tears during an emotional phone call with his parents to tell them of his State of Origin inclusion.

The 21-year-old had just been told by New South Wales head coach Brad Fittler that he had been selected in the State of Origin squad top face Queensland in November.

And Lomax wasted no time in ringing his parents to tell them the great news.

Lomax video called his father and began by asking him how he'd been.

But with tears in his eyes already, Lomax's dad quickly worked out the reason for the call and shouted "Yeah baby!" before the St George star even got a chance to tell him properly.

"I got in! I got in!", Lomax said while putting his fist in the air.

"Of course you did! Well done," his parents replied.

It has become somewhat of a trend for AFL or NRL players to call their parents to tell them that they'd be making their debuts, but this one might just be the most heartwarming yet.

Even Lomax's initial call with NSW coach Fittler was brilliant judging by his re-enactment.

"Hey Freddy! How are you mate? I'm going good, I'm going good, are you all sweet? Are you all good?" Lomax told Nine News.

"And I was like, 'Yeah, yeah, I'm sweet', and I didn't really know what to say and he just asked me if I was busy in two weeks' time and said you're selected as a part of the Blues squad.

"I just broke down and it got pretty emotional and it was the best feeling ever."

Lomax was the one shining light in the Dragons' rather underwhelming NRL season.

And now it appears he has been rewarded with a place in the NSW State of Origin squad who are hoping to clinch the three-peat against bitter rivals the Maroons.
