Geddes stars for Comets

By AARON KELLY EMERALD'S Adam Geddes continues his rapid rise in the Queensland Cup when the Central Comets take on Norths at Rockhampton's Browne Park tonight.

One of the few bright spots in a winless season for the Comets, Geddes is ready for his next challenge against the Melbourne feeder-club.

After making his debut for the Comets in round four against Toowoomba, the 20-year-old playmaker hasn't looked back.

"The opportunity to play at this level has been great,'' Geddes said.

Geddes, one of 11 players in tonight's Comets line-up under the age of 23, said this season had been a learning curve in his development after making the Queensland Maroons under-19 team in 2004.

"I'm slowly getting used to it (Queensland Cup) ? there is a lot more intensity,'' he said.

Comets coach Neale Crow said Geddes ? a third-year apprentice carpenter ? added plenty of enthusiasm to his young squad.

"The more games they can get under their belts, makes them better players and us a better club in the long run,'' Crow said.

"Adam's just very enthusiastic and wants to play Queensland Cup.''

Crow said the depleted Norths outfit still had strike power all over the park.

If stats mean anything, past history shows that from 17 games in the Queensland Cup between Norths and Central, the Devils have lost just two.
