Biography:

Mackay product Mitch Dunn enters the Cowboys’ main squad in 2018 after serving an impressive apprenticeship in the club’s NYC set-up.

Plagued by shoulder injuries in the 2015-16 season for the under-20 Cowboys, Dunn – a back-rower/five-eighth – turned out a stellar 2017 for coach Aaron Payne, who made him captain.

Combining with eventual 2017 NYC Player of the Year Jake Clifford, Dunn led the young NQ side to the finals, his solid performances earning him a two-year contract with the senior squad.

In the space of a year Mitchell Dunn went from under 20s five-eighth to first grade second rower.

After an extremely successful junior career in the halves, Dunn was moved to the forward pack in the pre-season for one simple reason – he wouldn’t stop growing.

The 190cm, 99kg giant began the year in strong form playing second row for the Mackay Cutters in the Queensland Cup and was called up to make his NRL debut against Manly in Round 13.

Entering the final season of a two-year contract extension, Dunn could emerge as an NRL regular in 2019.
