Kevin Walters Speaks for the First Time Since Losing Tom Dearden
THE RUSH HOUR QUEENSLANDER
Broncos coach Kevin Walters has given his first interview since the Cowboys launched a raid on young half Tom Deaden, signing the twenty-year-old who was touted as the next Alan Langer on a three-year deal beginning in 2022.
Speaking on The Rush Hour Queenslander Walters told Dobbo and Gorden Tallis that he was disappoint to lose Dearden who had been with the club since he was thirteen but it was an offer the club couldn’t match and now he’ll search for a more senior replacement.
“Has he hit his straps this year? No. We’ve had several conversations around that…we’re sorry to lose him but I just feel that, at the moment, we need a senior playmaker in the place to help us get that direction”
Earlier in the day Walters made a shock move in dropping both Dearden and fellow halves partner Brodie Croft in favour of recently demoted Anthony Milford and twenty-four-year-old Tyson Gamble. Walters explaining to listeners that he’s still searching for the right combination.
