Happy hooker waits for call

MAN of the match Michael Roberts is waiting by the phone. The vastly talented hooker hopes he is the centre of a National Rugby League bid over the coming month. "There's been no nibbles so far," he said. "Hopefully I will hear something over the next couple of weeks. "I would definitely take up an offer, even if it meant leaving Brisbane. It's a chance I could not afford to miss." He said the 2006 Queensland Cup victory was definitely the sweetest of his career. "As a senior player I took it a lot more personally than I did earlier in my playing days," he said. "When Toowoomba scored very early I said to the other players that it was the best thing to happen. "I said that Toowoomba would think it would all happen like it did in the semi two weeks before. We knew that we would step up and that what happened in Toowoomba wouldn't happen again." Roberts was confident that the Dolphins would field a strong side again in 2007 even if he left. He said the retirement of Adam Starr would leave a gap but the club's Colts were a young but talented group. He also said Redcliffe never had any problems attracting senior players who wanted to gain attention of NRL clubs or have the opportunity to win a premiership in their closing years.
