MARK SENTER believes David Scott has what it takes to become the next star in the Super League.
The Scottish-based kid has become the second rugby league youth to sign for a top-flight club in a month as he heads to Hull Kingston Rovers.
Scott is another off the production line at Easterhouse Panthers with former team-mate Chad McGlame also joining KR's rivals Hull FC early last month.
With a full contract on the line, Scott will be given 12 months to earn himself a longer deal.
The man that nurtured his talent, Easterhouse head coach Senter, feels he has the ability to do that.
He said: "David's a really talented player, incredibly focused individual.
"I first met him when he joined our club aged 12 and he's consistently been one of our top performers.
"He's had some great games and it would not surprise me if he started in Super League within the next few years."
The Easterhouse area of Glasgow is recognised as one of the most deprived estates in Europe but with two players graduating to the Panthers system to earn professional contracts, Senter believes rugby league is on the up.
He said: "It's great for the sport in Scotland to have these two players sign
"It's a catch 22 situation. I'm delighted for the two guys but we’ll have no team left soon if we our guys keep getting signed by Super League clubs.
"But it's brilliant for us as well, we've had TV crews in the club and coverage in the national press."
