Nor­man in mix for six

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NRL - STEVE ZEMEK

DON’T for­get about me.

That’s the mes­sage Corey Nor­man will be hop­ing to send out loud and clear to Queensland coach Kevin Wal­ters to­day as the Ma­roons mull over a pos­si­ble re­place­ment for five-eighth Johnathan Thurston.

Most of the hype this week cen­tred on Manly’s Daly Cherry-Evans and Bris­bane’s Anthony Mil­ford in their head-to­head bat­tle at Sun­corp Sta­dium last night.

How­ever, Wal­ters has al­ready stated that Nor­man is the third horse in the race and the Par­ra­matta play­maker is look­ing to push his Queensland No. 6 claims when he lines up against the Syd­ney Roost­ers at Al­lianz Sta­dium.

Nor­man has seven try as­sists for the year, putting him in the NRL’s top 10, while his kick­ing has been out­stand­ing, mak­ing the sixth-most me­tres (302 per game) and forc­ing most dropouts (11).
