Young Outlaw fires in draw with Caboolture

IF the Sunshine Coast Falcons don't require the services of Sam Young too much this season, the Northern Outlaws are more than happy to utilise the fullback's talents again after he starred for the side against Caboolture.

The 20-year-old showed plenty of spark during an 18-18 draw in the opening round of the Caloundra RSL Cup.

He was one of many fringe Falcons players not needed by the state league side on the weekend to lace up for club sides in Sunshine Coast Gympie Rugby League's division one.

"It would be good if he can step up and play for the Falcons but we're glad to take him," Outlaws co-captain Kurt Fleming said.

The Townsville junior, who was in South Sydney's under-20 squad last year, is slightly built but he is dangerous with ball in hand and as a support runner.

"He's not really a conventional footballer, tall and skinny, but he's electric when he's out there," Fleming said.

Young was recruited by the Falcons after they saw footage of him playing in the Holden Cup.

"He's got a lot of pace and glides across the ground," Sunshine Coast chief executive Chris Flannery said.

"He's got a slight frame and that's probably the only thing holding him back at the moment. We're trying to put more weight on him."

Young was training with the Townsville Blackhawks when the Falcons pounced in the pre-season.

The Falcons have had the luxury of using fringe Melbourne Storm players in their backline for much of their Intrust Super Cup campaign so far, relegating the likes of Young to the local league.

For the Outlaws, Saturday's deadlock represented a solid start to the season, following last year when the newly-formed joint venture (Gympie and Noosa) claimed the wooden spoon.

But the game was not without drama. The lights went out for about 25 minutes in the second half with scores locked 6-all.

In other matches, Maroochydore beat Kawana 16-8 at Bribie Island while Nambour stunned defending premier Caloundra 39-26 at Crusher Park.
