While his appearances in the top grade may have been limited, Corey Jensen was again one of the most feared front-rowers in the Queensland Cup in 2019.
The 25-year-old was rewarded for a stellar run of form for the Townsville Blackhawks with a starting spot in the front row in the Queensland Residents side for their clash against NSW in May.
In 17 games for the Blackhawks, Jensen averaged in excess of 150 running metres and 20 tackles a game and formed an outstanding combination with fellow Cowboys-contacted rising star Tom Gilbert.
Jensen managed six games in the top grade throughout the season with his best performance coming in Round 5 against Melbourne. The Bowen Seagulls junior ran for 72 metres and chipped in 16 tackles in just 26 minutes.
Jensen signed a two-year contract extension in September which runs through the 2021 season
Average run metres: 37
Average tackles: 11
