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