Butcher ready to carve for Roost­ers

Rugby League Week - - News -

Young gun Nat Butcher is still re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der re­con­struc­tion at the end of last sea­son, but he’s very much in coach Trent Robin­son’s plans. The former Rab­bitoh made a fine NRL de­but against the Bron­cos in round 26 last year and is highly rated by the Roost­ers — and Souths of­fi­cials are still fum­ing, know­ing they’ve lost one of their best lo­cal prod­ucts in years to their arch-ri­vals. “He’s mak­ing a good re­cov­ery and should be right for round one,” Butcher’s manager Steve Dea­con says.
