Townsville Black­hawks

RLW pre­dic­tion: Third

Rugby League Week - - Intrust Super Cup -

2016 fin­ish: Fi­nals week two Coach Kris­tian Woolf: “We only sign 25 play­ers and we don’t have a re­serve grade as such. We have turned over half our squad, which presents chal­lenges. But it is also ex­cit­ing be­cause it brings a real fresh­ness, new char­ac­ters and new skillsets. We’ll be a very dif­fer­ent team to last year, but our core group who have been there for a few years set the tone for what our team is about.” Player to watch: “Jor­dan Ken­wor­thy has the tough­ness and the work ethic with re­ally good foot­ball abil­ity on top of it. He is just out of Cow­boys 20s and back af­ter a sea­son-end­ing in­jury, but once he gets go­ing I think he will have a real im­pact at this level at lock.”

KEY GAINS: Sione Lousi (War­riors), Blake Leary (Sea Ea­gles), Kier­ran Mose­ley (Ti­tans), Car­lin An­der­son (Bron­cos), Jor­dan Ken­wor­thy (Cow­boys), Lee Je­witt (Castle­ford)

KEY LOSSES: Moses Pan­gai (Bron­cos), Glenn Hall (re­tired), Matt Bowen (re­tired), Rhyse Martin (Bull­dogs), Bren­den Santi (Roost­ers), Delouise Hoeter (Norths Devils)

SWOOPING BLACK­HAWK With six tries in 13 games for the Cow­boys’ NYC side last year, Jor­dan Ken­wor­thy can be a force in at­tack.
