Rep berth for Hawk

Mo­ran de­buts at full­back

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

A CA­REER cen­tre shifted to five-eighth for his club and was se­lected at full­back for rep­re­sen­ta­tive rugby league.

Danny Mo­ran’s path to the Wide Bay Rangers isn’t ex­actly a nor­mal one but the 29-year-old gladly took his chance.

“You def­i­nitely get a breather at the back, which was good,” Mo­ran said.

“I en­joyed it. I got my hands on the ball quite a bit and I pre­ferred be­ing able to get out wide rather than catch­ing and pass­ing (as five-eighth).”

His North­ern Dis­trict Bull­dogs beat Cen­tral Bur­nett 50-6 in their first game, then fell 34-12 to South Bur­nett.

He played full­back for the first time for the Bull­dogs, but played so well he was se­lected in the po­si­tion for Wide Bay. Mo­ran is one of 10 North­ern Dis­tricts play­ers in the Rangers side to travel to the 47th Bat­tal­ion Car­ni­val at Roma on May 2.
