McQueen was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He grew up in country town of Kingaroy.

McQueen played his junior rugby league for the Kingaroy Red Ants. He is the nephew of Australian former Olympic swimmer Geoff Huegill.[3] McQueen moved to Brisbane in 2006 to join the Wynnum Manly Seagulls, where he progressed through their Colts system to the Queensland Cup competition. In 2006, his first year playing with the Wynnum Manly Colts side, the team made the grand final, losing to a Norths Devils team that featured future NRL stars Israel Folau and Will Chambers.

He played 9 Queensland Cup games in 2007 and cemented his spot in the starting side in 2008, playing 19 games.[4][5] In 2008, he signed a two-year contract with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

McQueen joined the Rabbitohs in 2009 and spent the majority of the season playing for the Rabbitohs feeder team, the North Sydney Bears in the New South Wales Cup competition. He made his NRL debut in Round 22 of the 2009 season, days after his 22nd birthday. A late call up to the side, McQueen played on the wing and scored a try in South Sydney’s 36–22 win over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.[6] Due to injury, McQueen missed the entire 2010 season.[7] He returned to first grade in 2011, playing almost every game for the Rabbitohs, switching between wing and second row, and was named in Australia’s 34-man Four Nations train on squad.[8] Later that year he represented the Prime Minister’s XIII against Papua New Guinea.[9]

In 2012, he began the season again at wing, before making a permanent switch to second row. In 2013, McQueen cemented his spot in the South Sydney starting side. In 2012 and 2013, he was a member of Queensland’s Emerging Origin Squad.[10] In 2013, he made his State of Origin debut for Queensland.[11] He played all three games of the 2013 State of Origin series in which Queensland extended their record for consecutive series victories to eight.

On 5 October 2014, McQueen was selected to play for the Rabbitohs from the interchange bench in the 2014 NRL Grand final, helping them to a 30–6 victory over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.[12][13]

On 26 September 2015, McQueen again played for the Prime Minister’s XIII against Papua New Guinea.[14]
