KING ANOINTS BRODIE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - 2018 GRAND FINAL -

RUGBY league Im­mor­tal Wally Lewis has anointed Mel­bourne half Brodie Croft as a fu­ture Queens­land No.7.

“The half­backs for Queens­land have al­ways been dif­fer­ent,’’ Lewis said. “He is cer­tainly pro­duc­ing some form at the mo­ment and has to pro­duce con­sis­tent form to gain selection.”

If any­one is ready for the chal­lenge, it is Croft. He had been cho­sen as the man to re­place Cooper Cronk when he went to the Roost­ers, but suc­cess did not come quickly.

He moved in and out of first grade sev­eral times be­fore ce­ment­ing the No.7 jersey for Mel­bourne’s stun­ning fi­nals run.
