Singleton Greyhounds senior coach Jye Bayley can’t help but praise his trio of Will Nieuwenhuise, James Bradley and Morgan Amidy on the eve of the Greater Northern Championships.
The trio has been selected to represent the Hunter Valley Group 21 Rugby League men’s under-23 representative side at the Tamworth hosted event.
“It’s terrific for the club,” Bayley explained.
“Those boys definitely deserve to be there and Jimmy and Will were two of our best players every single week as well.”
“Then you have Morgan who will do well and even Ethan (Curtin-Edwards) should be proud of his efforts.”
“For him (Curtin-Edwards) to miss out is disappointing but he’s still got a few years in front of him.”
Group 21 took the chocolates in 2018 following impressive victories over the Group 4 Bushrangers 30-18 and Group 19 48-18 at Scone.
And the Singleton connection continues this weekend under the guidance of head coach Gary Gardner and Russell Richards.
Full Hunter Valley Group 21 men’s under-23 squad: Harry Douglass, Cameron French, Hamish Wolfgang (Aberdeen), Brady Benkovic, Max Greacen, Jordan Mulherin, Andrew Pritchard, Luke Rees (Denman), Jacob Button, Jayson Hovi, Jacob Kennedy, Jason McKay, Wade McKenzie (Muswellbrook), Isaac Austin, Jake Collison, Brady Curry (Scone), Morgan Amidy, James Bradley, Ethan Curtin-Edwards, Will Nieuwenhuise (Singleton).
