Josh Chudeligh's tragic run of injuries continued in 2018.
The talented dummy-half missed the entire 2017 with a torn ACL and just three games into his 2018 comeback Chudleigh re-injured his troublesome knee yet again.
The sample size was small, but Chudleigh was impressive during his short stint for Cowboys' feeder club the Mackay Cutters in the Queensland Cup.
In just his second game back from injury, against the CQ Capras in Round 3, Chudleigh produced a sensational performance to lead the Cutters to a thrilling 18-16 victory.
The 24-year-old registered a mammoth 43 tackles, a try assist and line-break assist in the win.
Heartbreakingly Chudleigh tore his ACL again the following week against the Northern Pride and missed the remainder of the season.
