Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread
For Newcastle Buderus is a great thing. De Gois left after last year, and we've got a couple of talented hookers in the lower grades who aren't quite ready. Having Bedsy back will allow them to learn from the best whilst he gets the farewell he deserves, as well as filling the gap at hooker for first grade.
As far as SOO goes, I very much doubt he'll get picked, especially seeing as this is his last year. Buderus in his prime > any hooker today, but Buderus after a few years in the UK? Remains to be seen. I'm sure he'll still be good, but probably not as good as Farah, who's todays best NSW hooker.
