Rugby League Week - - Intrust Super Cup -

2016 fin­ish: Fi­nals week three Coach Craig Inge­brigt­sen: “We made a big pro­gres­sion last year and now we be­lieve we are se­ri­ous con­tenders to win the com­pe­ti­tion. The ex­cit­ing thing is that we have a good core of blokes who have been there a few years and new guys in key po­si­tions, like Guy Hamil­ton, who was in the Bull­dogs sys­tem, at half­back. We’ve got a big pack this year with Dane Ho­gan, Scott An­der­son and Har­ri­son Muller. We were out-mus­cled at the back end of last year, but we won’t be this year.”

Player to watch: “Kevin Locke [pic­tured] has played eight Tests for his coun­try and at his best is a top-end NRL player. At this level, some­one with his raw speed will hurt the op­po­si­tion. We’re look­ing for­ward to giv­ing him the op­por­tu­nity to get his body right. He is bounc­ing around and ex­cited to be here which is a fan­tas­tic sign for us.”

KEY GAINS: Kevin Locke (Wake­field), Scott An­der­son (Wake­field), Hay­dan Lipp (Ip­swich Jets), Liam McDon­ald (Easts Tigers), Dane Ho­gan (Easts Tigers), Guy Hamil­ton (Easts Tigers)

KEY LOSSES: Nafe Seluini (re­tired).
