‘I’ll do it for the love of the sport’: Australia’s new captain, Tom Daley, says he’s ‘excited’ to become captain of a rugby league team
The star of the Australian Rugby League team has said he’s “excited” to become a captain and has promised his fans a “great season”.
Tom Daley is the star of a new Australian Rugby league team, and will lead them to the World Cup.
The 22-year-old was the captain of the Blues in 2014 when the team was promoted to the A-League and in 2019 was named an assistant coach.
“The best coach in the game,” he said.
“I’ve got a great work ethic, I’ve got great attitude, I have a great team spirit, and the team spirit is very good.”
Daley said he is “extremely proud” of the Aussie squad that he said was the best he’s ever played with and he has high hopes for the Blues’ first game against Sydney FC.
“It’s an exciting team,” he told Channel Seven’s The Bolt Report.
“There’s a lot of new faces.
I’m really excited.”
We’ve got new players and we’ve got some great new players that I’m very excited to get into the team.
“The A-Laws will be the first time the Blues have faced a major competition since the 2015 Grand Final, when the Blues won the title in their debut season.”
What you see with us in the next three years is what we’re looking for,” Daley said.
The Aussie Rugby League is currently based in Brisbane and the Blues will play home games at the ANZ Stadium.
