Between game and baby, Fleming has hands full
NORTHERN Outlaws co-captain and now first time father Kurt Fleming will tackle a newborn baby as well as leading his team in the first game of the season at home.
Fleming and his fiancé Georgia Zischke were blessed with a baby boy Myles Glendon Fleming on Tuesday and maybe even a future rugby league player in the making.
"I am very excited and it is an unreal experience I will never forget," Fleming said.
Fleming will have his hands full this weekend rallying a full Northern Outlaws side against Caboolture for the first game of the Sunshine Coast Gympie rugby league competition.
There will be five games played at Jack Stokes today including division two and Gympie Devils under-18 teams making for a good healthy crowd.
Fleming said it would be great to see a big crowd and hopefully the other grades stick around and support the team.
The Gympie boys were really looking forward to a home game first-up especially since there would not be as many this season, he said.
He said there would definitely be a full team today with more Sunshine Coast Falcons players still expected to join the team.
"They have all been pushing for spots," Fleming said.
He said it pushed them harder to play harder but made it hard for the coach to choose who made the line-up.
He said Caboolture had been a strong team every year and encountering them was always difficult and a very physical game.
"We will try to be more dominant than them and hopefully get some points.
"It would be exciting to get our first win at home," he said.
Fleming said the strongest attribute of the team was probably in attack.
He said there were some really good centres, half backs and wingers that could get them over the line.
