The CQ Capras have wasted no time finding a replacement for departing fullback Cameron Munster, today announcing that they have signed Hughie Stanley Jnr for the 2014 season.


Stanley Jnr follows in the footsteps of his father Hughie Stanley Snr who had an illustrious rugby league career in Rockhampton including a successful stint with the Capras.


Capras Operations Manager Walson Carlos said the signing of Hughie Stanley Jnr was indicative of the direction the club was heading in.


As a club we have been fairly active in the recruitment of players for the 2014 season with a focus on luring back top quality CQ products to form the nucleus of our squad. It really started throughout 2013 with the return of Dean Blackman, Jamie Simpson and Guy Williams.


The 2014 roster is coming together quite nicely. Its an exciting time for the club," Carlos said.


Hughie Stanley Jnr, 22, returns to Rockhampton after being somewhat of a journeyman since he left the region. He enjoyed successful stints with the Sydney Roosters U20s and Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles and more recently he played for the Easts Tigers in the Intrust Super Cup.


Capras coach Jason Hetherington said he was excited about what Stanley Jnr could bring to the club.


Hughie is an instinctive player, he has that anticipation that you cant coach. Hes a crowd pleaser and Im sure he will bring more people through the gate to watch him, Hetherington said.
