THE CQ Capras have today announced 19-year old Jamie Cairney as a new addition to the squad for 2013.
A 112kg front-rower, Cairney has arrived in Rockhampton after playing last season for the Shellharbour side in the Illawarra competition.
CQ Capras Coach John Harbin welcomed the addition of Cairney to his squad;
“Jamie is a top kid and he has come out of a competition that many people regard as the best regional competition in the country. He’s an out-and-out front-rower and will strengthen the depth in our squad,” Harbin said.
Newly appointed CEO Denis Keeffe said the Capras were building nicely for the 2013 season.
“The squad is coming together quite nicely for the upcoming season," he said.
"One thing I can guarantee is that this team will turn up every week and give their all for the CQ Capras. We need the community to get behind the Capras for this club to be successful. The best way to do that is to get online and become a member. Our 2013 memberships go on sale Monday.”
The CQ Capras play trial games at Browne Park on February 9 against a Brisbane Broncos U20s side and on February 16 against the Mackay Cutters.
Jamie Cairney represented the NSW U16 side and played SG Ball for the U18 Illawarra Steelers.
