Biography:
Signed to Todd Payten’s 2015 Cowboys NYC squad mid-way through the 2015 season, Bundaberg junior Kyle Laybutt was a revelation at the club.

Starting off the bench at under-20s level, it wasn’t long before the naturally gifted footballer was starting in games, the five-eighth helping take the young Cowboys to a preliminary final.

In 2016 and having graduated from NYC, Laybutt was offered a two-year-deal at the Cowboys, the young playmaker spending a productive and successful season with the Townsville Blackhawks.

Laybutt was again a major part of Blackhawks coach Kristian Woolf’s plans in 2017, but after a season training as a full-time rugby league professional, the young half made his NRL debut in the Round 15 golden-point extra-time thriller against the Melbourne Storm.

He played against the Panthers the following week in a memorable Saturday afternoon match where the Cowboys snatched a late win thanks to Kyle Feldt’s spectacular mark for a try and Ethan Lowe’s subsequent sideline conversion.

Five-eighth Laybutt will continue to learn his craft under head coach Paul Green and veteran playmaker Johnathan Thurston in the 2018 season.
