Gains and Losses for 2019

QRL Media

After finishing the 2018 season outside the top six in ninth place on the ladder, Souths Logan Magpies have been making some big moves on the recruitment front.

The Brisbane Broncos feeder club have announced the signatures of experienced try-scoring duo Linc Port and Matt Soper-Lawler for the 2019 season.

Linc Port (pictured below) joins Souths Logan Magpies after enjoying a successful 2018 season with Melbourne Storm feeder club Easts Tigers.

Port has consistently been one of the competition’s top try scorers, and finished last season with 14 tries in 23 regular season appearances (sixth highest try scorer).

Soper-Lawler joins the Magpies after spending the past two seasons with another Melbourne Storm feeder club in the Sunshine Coast Falcons. Much like Port, Soper-Lawler is one of the competition’s leading try scorers, having crossed for 13 tries in 21 regular season appearances (10th highest try scorer) in 2018.

Souths Logan have also managed to secure the services of experienced Wynnum Manly Seagulls forward Mitch Frei, and talented Norths Devils live-wire Gerome Burns.

GAINS: Mitchell Frei (Wynnum Manly Seagulls), Harrison Muller, Matt Soper-Lawler (Sunshine Coast Falcons), Linc Port (Easts Tigers), Alex Bishop (Norths Devils), Jack Joass (Mackay Cutters), Gerome Burns (Norths Devils / Brisbane Broncos), Haydyn O’Hara (Brisbane Broncos), Jerome Veve (Burleigh Bears).

LOSSES: Sam Scarlett (Wynnum Manly Seagulls), Sam Lavea (Easts Tigers), Travis Waddell (Dubbo), Corey Allan (South Sydney Rabbitohs).

While he is only 24, Patrick Mago is feeling like the “old man” of the team, with the Brisbane Broncos naming a fresh-faced side for their opening trial game this weekend.

The Souths Logan and Broncos forward spoke to QRL Media about the exciting talent Brisbane coach Anthony Seibold has selected for the Saturday trial match in Warwick, including his Magpies club mates Tesi Niu and Thomas Flegler.

“Tesi is 17 still – he’s one of the Souths boys (and) he’s got a lot of talent that kid,” Mago told QRL Media during the Tuesday morning Broncos media session.

Having been part of the Magpies side that travelled up to Normanton last year for the Intrust Super Cup Country Week round, Mago said he enjoyed getting “out to the country” as it allowed people who normally don’t get the chance to see top flight rugby league.

Fai heads home to Magpies to re-boot NRL career

*First appeared on QRL.COM.AU*

Call it ‘Operation George Fai’ if you like but the Souths-Logan Magpies and Brisbane Broncos are on a mission to save the career of the powerhouse prop in the next two months.

The Logan Brothers junior, a top 30 Broncos squad member who made his NRL debut in 2017, disappointed Brisbane coaching staff with the poor condition he turned up in at pre-season training.

After subsequently failing to reach the required conditioning targets the off-contract forward has been sent back to train with the Magpies to get himself in shape and has been given until April to hit those marks, a deadline where his future will be on the line.

Cruise Ten reflects on Magpies training move to Marsden SHS

*Article first appeared in Quest community news*

It was a Monday afternoon, the week of Schoolies celebrations, and year 12 school leaver Cruise Ten was back at Marsden State High School wearing his uniform.

Cruise had responded to a request from Marsden SHS principal Andrew Peach to return to promote the recent announcement that Souths Logan would be using Marsden SHS has its main training base for this season and beyond.

His peers might have been scattered around south east Queensland celebrating the end of their school life, but Cruise’s appearance spoke volumes for the respect he had for the Marsden SHS uniform and also his principal and coach, Andrew Peach.

“I started here in grade eight and went all the way to grade 12 so it is a big part of what I have done,’’ Ten said.

Allan Finding a home with the Rabbitohs

Former Souths Logan Magpies fullback Corey Allan is making a good impression at his new home; fitting in well at the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The below feature from Andréa Mandadakis & Dom Rizzuto is used with permission of the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

In case you haven’t noticed yet, Wayne Bennett isn’t the only big-name Bronco to have arrived at South Sydney this off-season.

Meet Corey Allan, the kid plenty are tipping has a big future in Cardinal and Myrtle.

After starring in the National Youth Competition and the Intrust Super Cup for the Souths Logan Magpies in Queensland, the 20-year-old is ready to make the step up to first-grade.

 
Corey Allan starred for the Souths Logan Magpies in season 2018 in the Intrust Super Cup.

If you needed any more proof his potential, earlier this year he became the first player ever to represent the Prime Minister’s XIII against Papua New Guinea without any NRL experience.

Not only that, but he managed to score a try while seamlessly fitting into a side that featured international and State of Origin stars.

One who can vouch for his potential is Rabbitohs Football Manager Mark Ellison, who has been highly impressed with the 20-year-old since he joined the club.

“He’s well above average for his age,” Ellison said of his abilities.

“Corey is showing early signs that he will be pushing for an NRL spot sooner rather than later, and I’m sure he is really looking to show that during our 2019 trial matches.”

But what makes the talented young fullback really stand out is his desire to adapt to a new environment and challenge himself in search for a first-grade opportunity.

Leaving everything behind in Brisbane was something that needed to happen, according to Allan, in order to improve as both a player and a person.

South Sydney seems to be just the place for him to do that.

“The club has so much history and so many stories and I want to be a part of that.”

“I just looked at the best thing for myself, and I felt I needed to get out of my comfort zone to better my footy,” Allan admitted.

“I needed to get away from what I was used to. I needed to learn new things off new people and coming to Souths was the perfect opportunity for that.

“As soon I came down and looked at all the old photo hanging on the walls it grabbed my attention.

“The club has so much history and so many stories and I want to be a part of that.”

While the young recruit is still adjusting to life in Sydney, one person he will be familiar with is the man holding the clipboard, head coach Bennett, who has been involved with his development since he was a teen.

The promising fullback had high praise for Bennett, who he says has already made a strong first impression among the playing group in just a few weeks.

“I first met Wayne as a young sixteen-year-old,” he said.

“He’s one of the best coaches around, he’s taught me a lot and pretty much everything I do has come from what I’ve learned from him.

“He’s brought a great morale to the club and plenty of knowledge. The spirits have been high since he’s arrived and we’re putting our best foot forward at the moment.”

Of course, another adjustment needed for any new player in a squad revolves around the team’s structures – not only buying into the club’s culture but also the style of play.

In a matter of weeks, Allan has already identified a number of team-mates who have taken him under their wing and helped guide him.

“I’m really liking working with Adam Reynolds and Cody Walker,” he said.

“They’re very skilful halves and they play a fast-paced style that I like to play.

“And of course, there’s ‘GI’ and Alex Johnston. They’ve played plenty of NRL and they’ve both played plenty of fullback so what two better people to learn off than them?

“I also met ‘Gags’ (Dane Gagai) in Australian camp and he reinforced to me that if you train hard the opportunities will come.

“Everyone has been really welcoming which has made the move easier.”

When it comes to ambitions, Allan certainly doesn’t lack any confidence.

While he might be the new kid in town, the young Queenslander is adamant that there is nothing stopping him from cementing a first-grade spot, even with plenty of competition from more experienced players.

As for season 2019 goals, he’s certainly shooting for the stars.

“I want to make my first-grade debut and after that, if I progress, hopefully I can hold a spot in the side,” he said.

“I think if I can play a certain amount of games this year, I can cement a spot and progress from there. I don’t mind where I play. I’ll do whatever is required, but fullback is where I’d like to end up.

“I want to play my best footy for Souths, and a grand final victory is definitely on my mind.”

If Allan’s ambitions are anything to go by, there are bound to be plenty of Rabbitohs members and supporters hoping for a similar result.
