Callaghan keen to cement Comets berth

Rockhampton Leagues Club Central QLD Comets recruit Trent Callaghan is ready to go and wants nothing more then to cement a spot in the Comets top squad for 2005.

After joining the Comets from Brisbane Norths, Callaghan has been training strong in the off season and has displayed the exact qualities needed to make a name for himself in the Queensland Cup after strong showings in his teams losses to the Storm and the Cowboys.

While the Comets have been outclassed in both trials so far Callaghan has been able to impress with his work ethic in the back row.

As most work horses are, the 19-year-old is a quiet achiever and says his main goal in 2005 is to cement himself a spot in the Comets line up.

The 2002 QLD Schoolboys representative is in doubt for his side's final trial with a shoulder injury but will be right to go when the Queensland Cup kicks off.

The Minniecon & Burke Pre-Season Challenge finishes up on Saturday, February 26 when the Rockhampton Leagues Club Comets clash with the Canberra Raiders with kick off at 8 pm at Rockhampton's Browne Park.

At 6 pm the Fitzroy-Gracemere Sharks A-grade side will face the Queensland Rail Comets Development squad.

While it's the last trial for the Comets, the players will still have a chance to impress when playing for their Central Queensland Extended League clubs leading up to the Comet's first Queensland Cup clash with the Tweed Seagulls on March 13.
