Cook our finals X-factor: Hasler

Coach Des Hasler believes Canterbury hooker Damien Cook can have a similar impact upon the NRL final series as the likes of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Michael Morgan and Anthony Milford.

Ahead of the Bulldogs’ elimination final against St George Illawarra on Saturday, Hasler says Cook is one of a number of youngsters set to make their mark in September.

Cook, 24, has played just a handful of games this season after taking over the dummy half role at the Bulldogs when first choice rake Michael Lichaa suffered a season-ending ankle injury in round 23 against Gold Coast.
