Nixon Pumped To Face Former Club

Rockhampton Leagues Club Comets forward David Nixon is preparing himself for a clash with his former club the Canberra Raiders when the Comets face the Raiders at Browne Park, Rockhampton on Saturday, February 26.

Joining the Comets from the Raiders in 2004, Nixon is in the best physical condition of his career and is jumping out of his skin at the prospect of tangling with his former club.

When asked about his side's upcoming match Nixon said, "I cannot wait to get out there and get into it with my former team mates, I'm just keen to prove to the Raiders that I was a loss to the club."

The 20-year-old is expected to be named in his preferred position of lock for the match after playing the Cowboys in the second row.

"I didn't have my best game against the Cowboys but it's only early days and I'm finding my feet again after struggling with injury in 2004. I'm just keen to get consistent game time."

The Comets side will be announced at the clubs Thursday training session with a number of players in doubt with injuries. Herewini Rangi(hamstring), Trent Callaghan(shoulder), Aoterangi Herangi(ankle), Mark Henry(hand), Kane Hardy(groin), Ryan Peters(groin) and Clint Wallace(calf).
