Perth’s 18yo ‘Superboot’ set for NRC debut against Stars
18-year-old ‘Superboot’ Nick Jooste will make his run-on NRC debut at flyhalf for Perth Spirit in their clash against the Sydney Stars at Leichhardt Oval.
If he can play like he kicks, he could be one of the players to watch in this year’s NRC.
After a disappointing loss to the North Harbour Rays in Perth last weekend, the Spirit welcome back Kyle Godwin for tomorrow’s clash.
