A big-bodied centre, Dan Russell will reunite with former Souths Logan coach and current Cowboys assistant Josh Hannay in 2018.

After graduating from the Broncos NYC side, Russell spent three seasons with the Brisbane-based Magpies in the Queensland Cup.

Despite battling injuries for much of the season, his 13-game stint in 2018 was enough to earn a two-year deal with the Cowboys for 2019 and 2020.

The Longreach-bred product has spent the majority of his career in the centres, but has also been earmarked for a potential move to the second row in the future.
