    Norths are extremely excited to announce that Jordan Luke flies out to Perth this evening to join the Western Force.

    When Jordy arrived at #TheNorthsNest a few years ago from Perth, it was hard to ignore his professionalism and desire to win.

    You hear stories of those successful players all the time who are first to training, last to leave, working on their extras constantly, recovering correctly, following medical advice, always available to help when asked, and helps when not asked... that is exactly the type of man Jordy has been during his time at Norths. A genuine leader.

    He has worked extremely hard over these last few years and was rightly so rewarded with a spot in the QLD 7s side in 2018 and the Brisbane City NRC roster in 2019.

    It wasn't too far into the NRC season before the coaching staff noticed his attitude matched his abilities, and he earned his first Brisbane City NRC jersey.
    He scored a hat-trick in his debut game, and was a regular selection from then on.

    Jordy, we are very very proud, and you will be missed immensely by not only all Eagles, but the wider Norths community.
    We thank you your service in the Eagles jersey and wish you every success back home in Perth.

    I think the Force just gained a number of new fans!

    Great to see another local player returning home

    Now for DH-P, RH-P, Louwtens & the rest to head home before they close the state border. They can start training with the squad for whatever Rugby comp rises from the ashes of RA and their subsidiary Rabble.

    As far as I know there is only one rugby team in Australia that has a billionaire financially backing them

    Twiggy is into so many industries and investments outside of FMG and iron-ore these days.
    https://www.minderoogroup.com/2019/1...capital-raise/

    The only temporary duds I can see currently would be the Old Brewery site and Indiana tearooms (restaurants and pubs are closed for 6 months or more). But these are small fry and gives him a chance to redevelop them.
    I would not be surprised if he bought a few more like this in the next few months.

    Counter-cycle investing?

    Why not buy the RA in a few months time?

    He is re-fitting the Swan Brewery as the new Minderoo HQ.
