Holland to remain a Scorpion


Macquarie Scorpion Kerrod Holland has not ruled out a return to the Singleton Greyhounds in the future.

However the former Canterbury Bulldog, who turns 30 this Sunday, will remain loyal to the Scorpions’ cause in season 2023 after he helped guide the club to their first grand final since 2017.

“I have signed on again for next year so I will be back again,” Holland told The Hunter River Times.

“While it was disappointing to lose a grand final it was nice to get there at least.

“Things didn’t go our way with 5 of starting 13 out which never helps especially when you play a side like Maitland but that’s rugby league I guess.”

It marked Holland’s second grand final defeat after he helped the Cessnock Goannas reach the season decider in 2014.

Nerves kicked in for both sides from the opening minutes however the Singleton junior kept his cool from start to finish.

The 40-4 defeat marked the end for Scorpions captain, Holland admits he would not mind a leadership position if asked by the club’s incoming coach.

“I haven’t thought about what next year’s role entails but I will have a bit of time off and wait for our new coach Matt Roach,” he explained.
