Roosters Radio Episode 92: Lindsay Collins

In this week's episode, we sit down with Lindsay Collins to talk about his journey from Brisbane to the Roosters, with his recent success leading him to the experience of State of Origin.

Lindsay also talks about his family history in Rugby League, what he would be doing if he wasn't a first-grade footballer, what the new rule changes mean for the middle player and his plans for life after footy and of course the story of the missing tooth.

We also review the weekends win against the Warriors and preview our upcoming clash with the Sharks at our home the SCG.

With Sam Walker and Ben Marschke making their NRL debuts on Easter Sunday, Collins reminisced on the excitement on his first game at the top level.

"You sort of want to be out there in those sort of games, and it looked like the boys were having a bit of fun," Collins said.

"There were a couple of debutants on the weekend with a young Benny Marschke and Sammy 'Walks'. You always want to be a part of those little milestones for them and their career as well.

"You sort of think back to your debut and how awesome it is and how hard and long the road is but it's also just the start. You go out there and do your job and that's exactly what he did.

"I remember being really cold, sitting on the sidelines. And I remember we had two bikes and Chris Smith was on one and I think Isaac Liu might have been on the other.

"I was too scared to ask the whole point of the bike but I remember getting out there and looking up at the clock and I only had been on for three minutes and thinking, 'Holy dooley, am I going to get through this?'"

"But it's exciting, you know. And I think when you see boys make their debut, it sort of gives you that feeling again."
