Woy Woy player named Star of 2019
NSW Rugby League has named Woy Woy Roosters player Bradman Best one of its 19 Stars of 2019.
At just 17, Best was named as one of the 19 up and coming stars of the sport with his coach, Mr Mark O'Meley claiming it was only a matter of time before Best debutted in the NRL.
"I reckon he would of have played NRL by now if he was 18," O'Meley said.
"I think he'll get a taste this year.
""He's ready to go that kid.
"It's just his age and rules and restrictions at the moment," O'Meley said.
Best is contracted to the Newcastle Knights until the end of 2021 and is so highly thought of that he has already been invited to train with the first grade squad.
A centre with size and strength beyond his years, Best has already managed to post one Origin moment, scoring a memorable try to secure victory for the under-16s in the 2017 series.
