Mackay product Mitch Dunn entered the Cowboys’ main squad in 2018 after serving an impressive apprenticeship in the club’s NYC set-up.
Plagued by shoulder injuries in the 2015-16 season for the under-20 Cowboys, Dunn – a back-rower/five-eighth – turned out a stellar 2017 for coach Aaron Payne, who made him captain.
Combining with eventual 2017 NYC Player of the Year Jake Clifford, Dunn led the young NQ side to the finals, his solid performances earning him a two-year contract with the senior squad.
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 registered nine appearances in 2019, but it was 2020 which served as his breakout year.
He played 17 of a possible 20 games and ended the season as the club’s first choice second-rower.
Dunn is contracted through the end of 2022.
