Wyn­num-Manly Seag­ulls

RLW pre­dic­tion: Mid- ta­ble

Rugby League Week - - Intrust Super Cup -

2016 fin­ish: Tenth Coach Adam Brid­son: “We de­lib­er­ately went and bought [former Manly, Cow­boys and Pen­rith utility] Travis Burns (pic­tured, above) to give us di­rec­tion and punch in our halves. We haven’t had a run­ning half for four years and he will lead our club. I just want us to be com­pet­i­tive – and we will be, this squad. We wel­come Mitchell Frei back from the Roost­ers, and [if he has] an­other big 12 months I’m sure he’ll get an­other op­por­tu­nity some­where else.”

Player to watch: “St­ed­man Le­fau played one game of BRL last year and had been in the War­riors NYC sys­tem. He’s a 108kg, hard-work­ing mid­dle for­ward and his work ethic and at­ti­tude gives me a gut feel­ing that he’ll have a big year and be a stand­out in the Q Cup.”

KEY GAINS: Travis Burns (St He­lens), Mitchell Frei (Roost­ers), Jarred Ber­rell (Norths Devils), Will Brim­son (Bron­cos), Adam Tuimavave-Ger­rard (Bron­cos) KEY LOSSES: Tim Na­tusch (re­tired), Mag­nus Stromquist (Moun­ties)
