By Gee, young Dave is too good to miss

TOOWOOMBA Clydesdales coach Mark Gee has joined Dave Taylor's growing list of admirers.

Gee will again not hesitate starting the hulking St Brendan's College Year 12 student in the front-row for tomorrow night's clash with the Central Comets in Toowoomba.

Taylor, 17, will take up a two-year deal with the Brisbane Broncos next year after completing his schooling on the Capricorn Coast.

At the start of the season, the Broncos were keen to give the Australian schoolboys star a taste of Queensland Cup action in a prelude to life in the NRL ? he hasn't missed a game.

"He (Taylor) came down and did pre-season with the top-squad and impressed enough to get a crack in the trials,'' Gee said.

"From there he impressed again and he hasn't looked back.''

Taylor will join former Rockhampton player Nick Kenny in the front-row while former Comet Trent Callaghan will start on the bench.

While the Comets are coming off a 38-all draw with Wynnum Manly, the Clydesdales are riding high after a thrilling 32-30 win over Ipswich.

Gee said his young side, which has seven players still eligible for under-19s, must be ready for a Comets ambush.

"They're one of the form sides of the competition,'' Gee said.

"We have to be set for a big game.
