Maryborough product Nick Brown stars for Cutters

HE HAS been one of Mackay's best this season but Maryborough product Nick Brown has been given a reason to smile.

The former Maryborough Brothers junior joined Mackay Cutters for this year's Intrust Super Cup competition.

The prop, who played for North Queensland Cowboys' under-20s team last year, has played both games for the Cutters so far.

Mackay were thumped 24-4 by the Northern Pride in the opening round.

But the Cutters, led by a 'man of the match' performance from Brown, bounced back to stomp Tweed Heads Seagulls 38-6 at home on Saturday.

The Cutters will face Townsville this week.
