‘The Recruit’ stars lured to North Ballarat

THE North Ballarat Roosters have enlisted the services of two of the stars from the upcoming season of Fox Footy show The Recruit for the remainder of the 2016 VFL season.

Ready to make an impact: Matt Eagles and Daniel Cox from television show The Recruit have joined the North Ballarat Roosters for season 2016. Picture: Kate Healy.

Twenty-five year-old tallMatt Eagles will join the Roosters after impressing in the QFA South competition in Queensland, while 21-year-old Daniel Cox comes to North Ballarat from Cable Beach Football Club in the West Kimberley Football League.

Cox had signed with the Roosters during the pre-season period and spent eight weeks training with the Ballarat side, while Eagles trained for a week in January but only signed at North Ballarat in the last week.

Roosters coach Marc Greig said he expected the pair would become regular fixtures in North Ballarat’s starting lineup in coming weeks.

“Danielfitted in really well with the group during pre-season, and he was really quickand will add some genuine excitement,” Greig said. “Matt’s played his last couple of games in the Essendon District Football League and hejust gives us another big option up forward and in the ruck.”

The pair were selected to take part in the show which will air later this year, but will look to further their development with the Roosters with the ultimate hope of being drafted into the AFL system.

Greig said he anticipatedCox to play the bulk of his football in the forward line, but would give the 21-year-old shortstints though the middle of the ground to utilise his pace.

Eagles is also set to become a focal point of the Roosters’ forward line after kicking 61 goals for Yeronga in the QFA, but like Cox will also become an asset in the middle of the ground through the ruck.

“We’ve kept three or four spots on our list this year with the hope of recruiting some mature guys,” Greig said. “Getting these players back helps the development of the younger boys too as they’ll learn from having experiencedboys around.”

The pair are possible inclusions for the Roosters’ clash with Port Melbourne on the weekend.
