Kane stars for ‘Burras
BITS SAINTS' young gun Kane Haua was best afield for North Queensland Kookaburras in the Under 16 State Championships which started yesterday.
The youngster was pivital in Kookaburras' 11.7 (73) to South Pacific's 2.5 (17) win.
Fellow BITS player Jackson Mangion and Jack Grainger also took to the field against South Pacific yesterday and will be up against Gold Coast today and against Brisbane North on Monday.
The flexibility in Jackson is clearly evident because he is adept in rugby league as well and is also best suited to play as a wingman or a half back flanker.
Jack is also a utility where he can play in the ruck or be a key position player at both ends of the field.
Kane will also be a handy acquisition and the elusive forward has a booming left foot kick.
He has great goal sense and is unpredictable which makes him a hard player to match up against.
Both Jackson and Jack made their A grade debuts for BITS Saints in round one. Kane has been recovering from a knee injury that occurred in the under 15 grand final last season.
BITS president Andrew McMahon believes Kane will play at senior level soon.
