    Even though the Western Mustangs are going with a local players approach this coming Colts season there is one very interesting name from outside the area joining the side, being 19 year old New Zealand touch representative Tarkyn Loloselo.

    At just 18 he became a New Zealand Opens touch International playing multiple Internationals since his 2017 debut. Tarkyn Loloselo has represented NZ in touch at the U18 and U20 levels as well.

    He is a former schoolboy First XV player in 2017 where he played on the wing, where he did in touch (both left and right wing) and where he will likely play in rugby league.

    Former Canterbury Bulldogs SG Ball player Hugo Traino is the only other player from outside the Darling Downs region currently in the Western Mustangs squad this season.
