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.
