Scottish International, Kane Linnett was originally born in Shellharbour, New South Wales, although the Aussie born back-rower has featured for The Bravehearts 6 times and crossed for tries on two separate occasions.

Linnett put himself on the rugby league map after his tenure with the Dragons’ NYC side between 2008 and 2009, scoring 31 tries in 51 games, before being scooped up by the Sydney Roosters in 2010.

In 2012, Linnett signed for North Queensland Cowboys and went on to appear 164 times, scoring 53 times.

The powerful and towering 30-year-old has a damaging effect to opposition lines, with impressive strength and skill – he’ll certainly be one to watch during 2019.
