Comets sign up young?uns



YOU might not have heard the names Yoren Major and Daniel Roberts ? yet ? but the Central Comets reckon it won't be too long before that changes.

Comets officials believe they have scored a major coup in signing up the gifted Woorabinda youngsters ? a halfback and centre they believe to be outstanding talents.

"They're both outstanding players,'' Comets coach Matt Parish said.

"I'd like to think they've got an opportunity to play Queensland Cup, if not this year, next year.''

Parish spotted the two future stars playing for Fitzroys in last year's Rockhampton Rugby League under-17 grand final.

The dynamic duo was also instrumental in The Cathedral College upset Rockhampton and District Secondary Schools Open A premiership triumph over hot favourites St Brendan's College.

Parish has been impressed with the commitment of both players, who make the trek in from Woorabinda three days a week for training.

"For young blokes, they're really making the effort and I'm looking forward to them playing.''

The pair will make their Comets debut in Gladstone this Friday night.
