Local rugby league players make NRL Rookies list

Two former Peninsula residents who got their start in rugby league playing at their local club, have been named in the National Rugby Leagues Rookies to Watch list for 2020.

Woy Woy's Bradman Best and Umina's Nicho Hynes have both made the list.

Best, who is signed with the Newcastle Knights, got his start playing with the Woy Woy Roosters.

His junior exploits include appearances for the NSW Under-16s, NSW Under-18s and Australian Schoolboys squads.

Last season, he averaged 91 metres and scored a try in all three of his appearances for the Knights, with the solidly-built back expected to start at left centre this year.

Hynes, who is signed with the Melbourne Storm, made his NRL debut last year in front of a home crowd at Central Coast Stadium.

He came through the ranks of the Umina Bunnies Rugby League Club.

Since joining up with the Storm, he has been working to bed down a bench utility position.

Hynes has trained at fullback, centre and in the halves over the summer and looks in line for regular game time.

NRL commissioner Ms Amanda Laing said this year's crop of Rookies to watch was one of the strongest in recent memory.
