Kane Douglas is an imposing, experienced lock who is entering his third season in Queensland colours.
The 28-year-old brings considerable experience to the St.George Queensland Reds and will likely line up for his 100th Super Rugby game in the 2018 season, while also having represented Australia 31 times.
Douglas’ career began south of the border with the NSW Waratahs, where he won a Super Rugby title in 2014, before heading overseas for a season with Irish giants Leinster. He joined the Reds after the 2015 Rugby World Cup, but missed much of his first season at Ballymore due to a knee injury suffered in the Cup final.
A product of the NSW north coast, Douglas began his Rugby career at 15, when he joined the Yamba Buccaneers – a connection which was celebrated last year when the club renamed their field after the gregarious lock.
Douglas is the younger brother of former NRL player Luke, who now plays for English Super League side St Helens.
