Souths-Lo­gan Mag­pies

RLW pre­dic­tion: Mid- ta­ble

Rugby League Week - - Intrust Super Cup -

2016 fin­ish: Seventh Coach Jon Buchanan: “It’s no se­cret that we don’t have a big bud­get, but the play­ers have a real blue-col­lar work ethic and are all there for the right rea­sons. I have stressed to the play­ers and staff that I don’t want any­one talk­ing about what we don’t have. We have the re­sources to put a good footy team on the park and if we can show re­silience as a footy club, that will put us in good stead.”

Player to watch: “Kyle McCon­nell [above] was a Ti­tans 20s kid a few years ago and was signed to the Cow­boys. He’s an old-style, un­com­pro­mis­ing for­ward. He doesn’t talk much but he runs and hits hard and he’s al­ready earned the re­spect of ev­ery­one with how phys­i­cal he trains. If he repli­cates that on the field, he’ll be good.”

KEY GAINS: Matt Minto (CQ Capras), Kyle McCon­nell (Ip­swich Jets), Evan­der Cum­mins (Red­cliffe Dol­phins), Lenny Magey (Townsville Black­hawks)

KEY LOSSES: Jack Joass (Mackay Cut­ters)
