half the team's over there this year I think. God knows who the Marlins are going to end up with. Kuany Kuany isn't going to lead them to a qbl championship that's for sure.

For the first time since 2004, the Skytrans Cairns Marlins have signed an import to their roster, with American small forward Michael Nwelue joining the team next week.

Originally from Texas, Nwelue is adding up his frequent flyer miles to come to Cairns after recently playing in Luxembourg for Musel Pikes in the Total League.

He averaged a double-double of 17 points (shooting 55 per cent from the field) and 10 rebounds.

The 24-year old stands at 6'5", boasts a wingspan of 6’11” and weighs 95kgs.

"I think he’ll be fantastic for us this year,” said Skytrans Cairns Marlins Head Coach Jamie O’Loughlin.

“He’s an attacking player that has got the length which will make him hard to guard.”

While this will be his first stint in the QBL, this is not his first time in Australia, as Nwelue helped take the Southern Tigers to the Premier League Grand Final last winter.

He averaged 17 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. The Marlins play their first home game at Cairns Basketball on Saturday 5 May, 2018.
