Bradman Best debuts with Knights
Former Woy Woy Roosters player Bradman Best made his National Rugby League debut with the Newcastle Knights on August 24.
Best has been a part of the Knight's talent development program since his early teen years and that dedication paid off when he was let loose for the Knights against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium.
Despite their best efforts an in-form Tigers had their way with the Knights, taking them down in an emphatic 46 to 4 win.
While his debut game did not go as planned, Best certainly impressed, running 135m, covering more ground than all but three of his teammates.
His 51 post-contact metres were second only to Mitch Barnett.
Best's season has included making his Canterbury Cup debut and scoring seven tries in five appearances the Jersey Flegg Competition.
Best's debut comes a fortnight after Umina's Nicho Hynes debuted with the Melbourne Storm.
