After making his name as one of the NRL’s premier finishers down south, Nene Macdonald will return home to North Queensland in 2019.
The Cairns-bred flyer signed a three-year deal with the Cowboys in October and is set to form one of rugby league’s most deadly wing duos with Kyle Feldt.
After debuting with the Roosters as a 20-year-old in 2014, Macdonald emerged as one of competition’s top wingers during his stints with the Titans and Dragons.
Expressing a desire to return home, Macdonald secured a release from the Dragons to sign a long-term deal with the Cowboys in order to be closer to family.
Macdonald moves north on the back of a stellar season for the Dragons in 2018, scoring 10 tries in 23 games including a number of spectacular highlight-reel finishes.
The 24-year-old has also made nine appearances for PNG since debuting at the 2013 World Cup and appeared for the NRL All Stars in 2016.
