The Rockhampton Leagues Club Capras welcomed an old friend to Rockhampton recently in the form of Lance Kuveu.
Kuveu was called on by the Capras earlier in the year when the side travelled to PNG to play the Hunters; but injuries, illness and passport issues meant the Capras struggled to field a full team and were forced to recruit two players out of the local league onto their bench.
Kuveu – who was playing in the Digicel Cup for the Agmark Gurias at the time along with Clement Kilingelat – stepped in to help out the undermanned Capras.
Kuveu went on to score the only try for the Capras in that game against the Hunters and received the biggest cheer of the day from the PNG crowd.
The Capras saw enough in Kuveu to offer him a contract for the 2016 season, making him the first player recruited from the Digicel Cup into the Intrust Super Cup (outside the players participating in the PNG Hunters program).
Kuveu knows it will be step learning curve and lots of hard work, but is thankful for the opportunity given by the Capras to pursue his dream of playing in the Intrust Super Cup.
