In the space of a year Mitchell Dunn went from under-20s five-eighth to first-grade second rower.
After an extremely successful junior career in the halves, Dunn was moved to the forward pack in the pre-season for one simple reason – he wouldn't stop growing.
The 190cm, 99kg giant began the year in strong form playing second row for the Mackay Cutters in the Queensland Cup and was called up to make his NRL debut against Manly in Round 13.
Dunn made an instant impression in the top grade courtesy of some flamboyant offloading – a trend that continued in his second NRL appearance against St George Illawarra in Round 19.
Entering the final season of a two-year contract extension, Dunn could emerge as an NRL regular in 2019.
