Season Review: Curtis Scott

It was a year that saw childhood dreams come true for Scott.

He went into 2017 looking to make amends after a rookie season that was cruelly cut short due to a broken leg.

Scott was forced to be patient as he endured injury early on before strong performances at feeder level earned him an NRL opportunity in Round 15. He seized his chance with two tries in a famous win over the Cowboys minus Storm’s Origin stars.

A season-ending injury to Cheyse Blair meant Craig Bellamy would turn to the 19-year-old to fill the void at left centre and Scott wasted little time in stepping up to prove he was more than capable of doing the job.

Alongside Josh Addo-Carr, the pair proved a dynamic combination in both attack and defence.

Despite having just two games of first grade experience under his belt heading into the season, Scott played like a seasoned veteran when the pressure was at its highest later in the year.

His try in the Grand Final, fittingly from an Addo-Carr pass, sealed the premiership for Melbourne and capped off a remarkable second half of the season for the teenager.

Scott will now look to hold onto his spot in the starting side and take his game to the next level in 2018.
