Bolton set to face McLean

Sunday Territorian - - NRL GRAND FINAL -

SCOTT Bolton knows Jor­dan McLean is com­ing for his No.10 jersey.

But first McLean is gun­ning for Bolton’s pre­mier­ship ring.

While Bolton – who con­tin­ues to get bet­ter with age – is in no rush to give up his start­ing spot, he will also face McLean head on to­day.

McLean’s next NRL game will be in a Cow­boys jersey after sign­ing a three-year deal to join North Queens­land next year. Bolton said McLean would add to an im­pres­sive Cow­boys for­ward pack.

“He is a great player,” Bolton said. “He has shown what he can do. I’m sure he will come up and do his job for Mel­bourne. He is just an­other player that we have to con­tain.”

With Matt Scott re­turn­ing from in­jury next year and McLean join­ing the club, the Cow­boys will have one of the most po­tent packs in the NRL.
