Tweed Heads Seag­ulls

RLW pre­dic­tion: Mid- ta­ble

Rugby League Week - - Intrust Super Cup -

2016 fin­ish: 13th Coach Aaron Zim­merle: “Of the cur­rent 53 play­ers slog­ging it out through pre-sea­son, 30 are new to the club in 2017, which brings new energy and op­ti­mism for the sea­son ahead. The goal for this year will be sim­ply about earn­ing back the re­spect of our op­po­nents by be­ing the side that no-one looks for­ward to play­ing.”

Player to watch: “Peter Lee [right] was play­ing rugby sev­ens and he’s a Fi­jian Aus­tralian who is very strong and dy­namic. He just needs to learn the nu­ances of league. His rate of im­prove­ment has been re­ally good and if he can trans­fer that into the games, he’ll be a great ac­qui­si­tion. We were af­ter some pow­er­ful out­side backs and we are look­ing for big things from him.” Lee was also a con­tes­tant on last year’s Chan­nel Nine show The NRL Rookie.

KEY GAINS: Damian Siro­nen (Illawarra Cut­ters), La­mar Li­ol­e­vave (Can­ter­bury Bull­dogs), Peter Lee (rugby sev­ens).

KEY LOSSES: Will Bug­den (North­ern Pride), Cory Blair (re­tired)
