A favourite son returns to the fold for the Ipswich Jets, headlining their list of gains for the 2019 season.
Premiership winning half Josh Cleeland is back for the Jets after a successful stint down south with the Bulldogs which included a NSW Intrust Super Premiership title.
His return will do much to offset the loss of experience half Dane Phillips who has retired alongside try scoring machine Wes Conlon.
Another high-profile recruit for season 2019 is Peter Gubb from Wynnum Manly.
A popular figure in the Intrust Super Cup competition; he will be hoping to find a new lease of life under the coaching of the Walker brothers and following in the footsteps of recent Seagulls convert Ben Shea.
