Shute Shield: Coleman brothers fire up banter as Wildfires take on Gordon


The Hunter Wildfires hosting the front running Gordon side was always going to have its fair share of banter with the Coleman brothers - Scott and Darren - going at it much like their backyard footy games that played out many moons ago.

Well it hasn’t disappointed with the younger brother (Scott) throwing out a series of good natured jibes and setting a number of booby traps for the older brother (Darren) when he stays at his Newcastle home on Friday night.

Opposition coaches being matey is not unusual but it is irregular when they stay the night before a game in the home of the one whose downfall they are plotting.

The whole Coleman clan is coming together for a dinner and catchup from all points on the globe (Forbes and South West Rocks) on the Friday night at Scott’s place.

All in all there will 13 extra bodies on Friday night and when Rugby News spoke to Wildfires boss ‘Bubba’ Coleman in the lead up to Saturday’s 7TWO match of the round he was unsure of how the head count and the bed count would match up.
