Biography:
An up and coming fullback, Kalyn joins the Club this season on a four-year contract.

Kalyn was born in Port Hedland, WA but is a Mackay junior. He made his NRL debut for the North Queensland Cowboys in 2016, and is a versatile back who can play at fullback and on the wing.

A speedster with cunning footwork, his ability to beat defenders is one of his strong attributes and he will be one to watch in 2018.

Kalyn was a handy golfer and only turned his attention to rugby league as a teenager.
