Biography:

Newly acquired centre Tom Opacic will have his eyes firmly set on the centre spot vacated by long-time Cowboy Kane Linnett in 2019.

Opacic secured an early release from his contract at the Broncos to sign a two-year deal with the Cowboys.

The 24-year-old debuted for the Broncos in 2016, scoring four tries in nine games during his debut season.

Two shoulder reconstructions in the space of a month cost Opacic any NRL action in 2017, but he returned to play 10 games in the top grade in 2018.

Opacic scored a try in Redcliffe’s Queensland Cup grand final victory over Easts Tigers at the end of the 2018 season.
