It’s one thing being a star of rugby league, it’s another being a star of a worldwide brand.
Well, that’s just one thing that Brisbane Broncos star Selwyn Cobbo has got to look forward to in his career.
Not only does he have as many as FOURTEEN clubs chasing hard for his signature, sportswear giant Nike are also wanting to hunt the electric outside back.
Despite making just 17 appearances in Australia’s greatest sporting competition, the NRL, all eyes are on Cobbo moving forward as he prepares for a conglomerate of offers coming his way.
Already hailed as the next Greg Inglis, Cobbo is still just a teenager – 19 to be exact – but NRL legend Andrew Johns had this to say following Cobbo’s performance against Newcastle Knights at the weekend: “We are watching absolute greatness for the next 10 to 12 years.”
Brisbane, of course, put the Knights to the sword in emphatic fashion last weekend with 19-year-old Cobbo grabbing two scintillating tries.
