Little Luke is Little Star: Taylor

Sunday, 22 July 2007

Issac Luke had trouble defending and was tackling goalposts to make sure he could tackle properly but this little star is a big star for the future according to his (Luke's) coach Jason Taylor. Taylor also says that he has a big future ahead of him and was promoted to the starting lineup from the bench at hooker this week.

Luke was pivotal in the performance against the Cowboys winning 20-14 and scoring a wonder team try where Luke was lucky to be on the back end on as the little youngster bagged his first top level try. Luke couldn't defend in his younger days but in the second half against the Bulldogs put on some big hits on some big men and even had his own personal "Brut Big Hit" on Channel Nine's coverage and was also named Man of the Match.

Originally from New Zealand Issac Luke came to Australia playing his lower grades with Canterbury and moved to Souths with absoloutely no plans on the future. Luke revealed to Sportal that his biggest dream is to play tests for NZ and Taylor said that in the near future expect Luke to be in that squad and not to downplay the creative dummy half's ability. "Issac - we need to keep his feet on the ground - but he's a superstar in my opinion," he enthused.

Co-captain Roy Asotasi agreed with his coach's assessment of Luke, adding: "He's a superstar in the making. He gives us that go-forward, he's quick off the mark and that's what you need."
"Issac provides that for us."
Luke hails from the tough New Zealand town of Hawera on the west coast of south island and honed his skills by taking on wooden posts at a family friend's place.

He shyly told the media after Sunday's game: "My dad's mate had (some goalposts) and thought I'd have a go at it, see how I went."
"Sometimes I'd go through it."

He elaborated a little more when pressed on his rise to prominence with Souths - a rise which is likely to result in a new two-year deal.
"I was all over the show when I was with the Bulldogs and couldn't secure a spot," he explained.
"But (Souths recruitment officer) Mark (Hughes) believed I could have a go over here and I just got lucky."
"I love the team and hope they love me and we'll see how we go."
On his prospects of playing for the Kiwis in October's one-off Test against Australia, Luke said: "That's my dream ever since I was a kid. It'd be good."
