Jason Bell 2000

A Parramatta junior, Bell made his first grade debut in 1989. He played fifty three games for the Eels before transferring to North Sydney at the start of the 1993 season. However his time at the Bears was not a happy one and he only played one first grade game in the 1993 season.

He rejuvenated his career by moving across the harbour to the Rabbitohs. Here he played 58 games in three years for the club, and was regarded as a senior player by the time he was 24. He formed a solid halves combination with Craig Field.

His strong form at the Rabbitohs gave him the opportunity to return home to the Eels, and he went on to play another fifty three games for the club. In 1997 he won the club's Jack Boyle Tackling School Award, which is awarded to the club's best tackler each season. By 1999 however, he was struggling to make first grade and instead captained the Eels reserve grade team to a win in the NSWRL First Division Grand Final.

He was not re-signed by the Eels for 2000 and instead he joined the Newtown Jets in the NSWRL First Division. The Jets had a feeder relationship with the Auckland Warriorsand mid-season injuries to Stacey Jones and John Simon saw him signed by the Warriors. He played eight games to finish off the season for the Warriors.

At the end of the 2000 season the Warriors were sold and the new owners did not opt to re-sign Bell.

JASON Bell ... hungry to play.

JASON Bell ... hungry to play.

WHEN it comes to rugby league, the hunger is still there for Cudgen Hornets coach Jason Bell.

Bell will be pulling on the boots when his fledgling side takes on the Mullumbimby Giants in a trial game at Ned Byrne Field, Kingscliff tomorrow.

Charged with the responsibility of putting together a new-look Cudgen Hornets side for the Northern Rivers competiton this year after most of the original team headed north to the Gold Coast comp, Bell, a former Parramatta and South Sydney player, is looking forward to the challenge, and especially to playing again.

"I can't wait," Bell said yesterday.

"Our numbers are slowly coming together, and we'll have a good test against Mullum, who have already had a few trials.

"I'll be having a run for the first part of the game and then want to sit in the stands and see how our players go and where I think their best positions would be."

Bell said Cudgen would be fielding two senior grades and a composite under-18/19 side in the trials, which would help him in his selections for the club's opening Northern League clash against Murwillumbah at Cudgen on Sunday, April 15.

The new coach is under no illusions as to the size of the job at hand, but said there had been plenty of enthusiasm at training and the club was gaining more players each week.

"The benefit of the trial will be to give players the opportunity to play in different positions, possibly in spots they may not have played before," Bell said.

Developing continuity between the trial and the season-opener will be one of Bell's priorities, as will sorting out his team structure.

"We have a heap of hookers, and quite a few backs already, and with another prop or two, we will have a well-balanced side," Bell said.

The trials at the Cudgen Hornets ground at Kingscliff kick off at noon tomorrow with the under-18/19 trial before the senior trial game at 3pm.
