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.
“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.”
