Young Gympie flyer Carlin Anderson first came to national attention two years ago when he helped the Ipswich Jets to the 2015 Queensland Cup and NRL State Championship titles.
That stellar season earned him an NRL contract with the Brisbane Broncos in 2016 but a serious jaw and facial injury sidelined him for an extended period and he didn’t crack the NRL.
But Cowboys’ Queensland Cup feeder team the Townsville Blackhawks offered Anderson a career, which he took with both hands to turn in a stellar 2017 season which saw him finish the year as the competition’s leading point scorer.
It was a fine year soured by injury as Anderson broke his arm in the Blackhawks’ final regular season game, missing out on the finals campaign.
On the strength of his strong form at Q-Cup level, the Cowboys offered Anderson, a gifted fullback, a two-year deal.
