Best: 'It all starts here'

Bradman Best is ready to train the house down.

The 20-year-old returned to training duties last week in preparation for the nearing 2022 season.

The centre has played 31 games in the red and blue since his debut as a teenager and says he's ready to take his game to new levels.

"I know I’m only young, but I want to be an older head," Best said.

“I really want to push to be a leader in this Club.

“That’s the role I want to take on."

Best: Ripping in and training so far

The powerful outside-back has also had his fair share of setbacks over the last couple of seasons.

A syndesmosis injury sidelined the youngster midway through 2021, however he returned with flying colours at the back end of the campaign.

Best played a huge factor in the side's five-game winning spree at the back end of last season on the road to the finals.

Back to full fitness, the sky is the limit on Best's potential.

“Obviously last year I had a few niggling injuries and a few setbacks," Best said.

“This year I’m feeling really good, feel healthy and ready to go.

“It’s a goal of mine (to play State of Origin).

“It all starts here. I’ve just got to rip in and train hard."

Best says he's also extremely excited to learn off some Club legends who have joined the coaching staff.

“With all the new staff here, they are all helping me achieve my goals," Best said.

“Obviously Joey has come, Kurt (Gidley) aswell, we’ve got a lot of old boys that we’re very happy to have here and I’m very excited to work with them.

“There’s always competition (for spots).

“When the boys are pushing each other, it only brings the best out of ourselves."
