Central Comets 2003 Players' Player award winner David Faiumu left Rockhampton this week bound for Townsville and a shot at the big time with the North Queensland Cowboys.
The 20-year-old will become the second player to take advantage of the link between the Cowboys and Comets after being one of the most consistent performers for the Comets in 2003.
Speaking to Rockhampton's Morning Bulletin Faiumu said, "I just want to start off and play some good football. I am not going up there to expect any miracles, I just want to play consistent footy with the Young Guns."
Faiumu will start pre-season training on November 10 and is looking forward to the challenge of training under renowned fitness guru Billy Johnstone.
Faiumu spoke to both Jason Hetherington and John Doyle who have both trained under Johnstone in the past and both assured him while the first few weeks will be tough he will be right.
The utility who has signed on with the Cowboys for two years, stands approx 180 cms tall and weighs approx 95 kgs and represented the Junior Kiwis in 2000 and 2001.
