Coote inspired by Scottish stint

Lachlan Coote says his time with Scotland in the 2016 Four Nations helped him find his love for rugby league again.

Coote’s club season ended on a disappointing note with the Cowboys knocked out of the NRL finals.

The fullback said he wasn’t at his best for the finals, but playing with Bravehearts helped him freshen up.

“Going over there with boys that are playing Super League and then there are boys playing what we would call local league and it was good to see that their passion is still there,” Coote told

“The way that they work after football, they come to training, travel two hours on the weekend to play footy and then they’ve got to go back to work again on Monday and train again.

“It’s good to see how passionate they are about the game and it really rubbed off on me.

“Going over there we had no expectations. There was no pressure and we went better than we thought we were going to go.

“It was good to get a bit more footy in there, a bit of a freshen-up and find the love again and be back here for pre-season.”
