Â Â * sport Â Â Â Â Â o Rugby League 04 Jan 10 @ 09:06am by Andre Grimaux MANLY BOUND: Cashmere rugby league player Cale Hobday. THERE is a sense of destiny about Cale HobdayÃ¢Â€Â™s impending move to the Manly Sea Eagles. As the cousin of Brookvale Oval great Noel Cleal, the 17-year-old Cashmere wrecking machine is following a well worn path. And not just a track set down by Manly, NSW and Australian great Noel ``CrusherÃ¢Â€Â™Ã¢Â€Â™ Cleal, now a highly regarded scout for the Sea Eagles. But also by his NoelÃ¢Â€Â™s brother Les, who played with SydneyÃ¢Â€Â™s Eastern Suburbs, and former Redcliffe Dolphins premiership forward and Australian Schoolboys representative Grant Cleal, who is HobdayÃ¢Â€Â™s uncle. All were renown for being tough, uncompromising players on the footy field. Noel, especially, was regarded by many, including a lot of Queenslanders, as one of the fiercest second rowers of the mid-1980s. And if HobdayÃ¢Â€Â™s best-on-tour performance for the Australian Institute of SportÃ¢Â€Â™s rugby league squad on the tour to France and the UK in late November is anything to go by, the young prop has inherited the same rampaging style. One thing he hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t inherited is the ``CrusherÃ¢Â€Â™Ã¢Â€Â™ nickname. Instead he has been given the tag ``BoppaÃ¢Â€Â™Ã¢Â€Â™, a moniker that suits well his playing style. ``IÃ¢Â€Â™d love to play like my uncles,Ã¢Â€Â™Ã¢Â€Â™ the 106kg teenager said. ``TheyÃ¢Â€Â™ve given me a few tips, and I watched Grant play a lot at Redcliffe.Ã¢Â€Â™Ã¢Â€Â™ Hobday started his fledgling career as an under-7 with Redcliffe, and spent seasons at Pine Rivers, Arana Hills and Albany Creek before returning to the Peninsula to play under-18s this year. It proved a clever move, and after a strong season with the Dolphins and his first representative tour with the AIS, the Wavell State High School student is headed to SydneyÃ¢Â€Â™s northern beaches to make a go of playing first grade football, just like those of his family before him. It will start in ManlyÃ¢Â€Â™s SG Ball side, but there is already talk he may find a regular home in ManlyÃ¢Â€Â™s under-20 Toyota Cup team. INFORMATION SOURCE.PINE RIVERS PRESS.
