Hospital Cup coaches pick players to watch in 2024

The 2024 Hospital Cup season kicks off this Saturday and after a long, tough preseason, there's a plethora of players ready to take a the competition by storm.

Ahead of opening weekend, we asked all nine Hospital Cup coaches to pick a few players to watch from their clubs this season.

Mick Heenan - Bond Uni

"Tyler Campbell has been exceptional all summer. He’s a very underrated player when you look across the the competition," Heenan told Rugby News.

“Rhian Stowers is another outstanding player and he’s been wonderful.

“Then we’ve got a few colts who might not play first grade every week but they’ll certainly have an impact this season. Guys like Oliver Barrett, Fergus Gillan, Zeb Misios and Harry Bell.

“I’d expect them to play between first grade and colts this year and do really well in both competitions.”

Ben McCormack - Brothers

“Although he's already contracted, I’m really excited to see what Timmy Ryan does this year. He’s just a really good footballer and he’s only 21," McCormack said.

“Jaiden Christian is a pretty unique player. He spent a bit of last year with the Melbourne Rebels but hasn’t signed anything for this year.
