QLD GPS: Nudgee’s inexperience won’t quash expectations   

By Ant Brand

St Joseph’s Nudgee College will field their most inexperienced First XV side in recent history as they blood a swag of new talent for season 2020.   

Just three starters return from the 2019 campaign but that’s not dampening coach Andrew Scotney’s hopes in his Nudgee’s quest for GPS Premiership success in 2020.

“The expectation at Nudgee is to always try and win the thing,” Scotney said.

“I have been here since 2016 and this would be the least number we have had coming back so you obviously have a lot of boys that are learning the way.

“You want to play the game in terms of your systems and structures and you are also sort of learning as to what their strengths and weaknesses are.

“But on the flipside that comes with a lot of energy and a lot of enthusiasm because this is their shot at it.”
