MAS­SIVE BOOTS TO FILL AT NO. 1 Holmes happy to be Slater’s un­der­study

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - PAUL MALONE

VALEN­TINE Holmes says he wants to be­come the Queens­land and Aus­tralian full­back one day as a grad­u­ate of Billy Slater Uni­ver­sity.

Cronulla’s first- choice full­back this year, Holmes will study how his Kan­ga­roos team­mate Billy Slater goes about his role as No. 1 in what may be a six- week World Cup camp.

The three- try star of Queens­land’s Ori­gin de­cider win is the in­cum­bent Aus­tralian left winger ap­proach­ing the World Cup opener against Eng­land on Oc­to­ber 27 in Mel­bourne.
