Coote had a hugely impressive debut season in the Super League with many declaring “he is the reason” Saints were crowned 2019 champions.

Having joined the Saints as a replacement for the mercurial Ben Barba, Coote had big boots to fill. But he certainly filled those boots as he became a stand-out performer at full back scoring 17 tries in 27 appearances and laying on a further 22 scores for his teammates.

As well as his creativity and attacking threats, his defensive work and composure came to the fore and he quickly became a fans favourite as he led Saints to a first Grand Final success since 2014. He was also named in the Super League Dream Team before being called up for Great Britain (through Scottish connections).

Prior to joining the Saints, the Scottish international played 167 times in the NRL after making his debut for Penrith in 2008.

He went on to make 83 appearances for the Panthers before he signed for Cowboys in 2014. It was there that his skills and big game experience came to the fore.

He played a massive part in North Queensland’s run to the 2015 Grand Final and was integral in back-stopping them to a heart-stopping 17-16 Golden Point win over Brisbane Broncos.

The following year the Cowboys became World Champions and Coote scored in the 38-4 win over Leeds at Headingley.

Coote played City Origin in 2012 and lined up for the Prime Minister’s XIII in their end-of-season match against Papua New Guinea.

He has also featured three times for Scotland.
