Kyle Feldt (born 9 February 1992) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the North Queensland Cowboys of the National Rugby League. Feldt primarily plays centre or wing and was a member of the Cowboys' 2015 NRL premiership and 2016 World Club Challenge winning sides.

Early life

Born and raised in Townsville, Queensland, Feldt played his junior football for the Norths Thuringowa Devils and attended Ignatius Park College before being signed by the North Queensland Cowboys.[citation needed] In 2008, Feldt was selected for the Queensland under-16 team. In 2009, he played for the Townsville Stingers in the inaugural season of the Mal Meninga Cup. In 2010, Feldt was selected for the Queensland under-18 team.[citation needed]

Feldt played for the Cowboys NYC team from 2010 to 2012.[2] At the end of 2011, Feldt was named on the interchange bench in the 2011 NYC Team of the Year. He finished his NYC career as the competition's highest ever point scorer, with 570 points.[3] In the Grand Final against the New Zealand Warriors, Feldt had the chance to win the premiership for the Cowboys, however he missed an easy conversion on the full-time siren, and the Cowboys lost the match in golden point extra time 31–30.[4]

In October 2011, Feldt played for the Junior Kangaroos.[5]

Playing career

2013

In Round 21 of the 2013 NRL season, Feldt made his NRL debut against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the Cowboys 30-12 win at 1300SMILES Stadium.[6][7] In Round 22 against the Penrith Panthers, Feldt scored his first NRL career try in the Cowboys 36-4 win.[8] After the Cowboys Round 23 match against the Gold Coast Titans, in which he scored 2 ties, Feldt injured his ankle at training, ending his debut season in the NRL. He scored 3 tries from his 3 appearances.[9][10] In October, Feldt was awarded the Cowboys Rookie of the Year award.[11]

2014

In February, Feldt played in the Cowboys successful 2014 Auckland Nines squad.[12] Feldt starred in the tournament, finishing as the highest try scorer, alongside Parramatta's Semi Radradra, with 5 tries, and was named Breakout Player of the Tournament. On 26 May, Feldt re-signed with the Cowboys until the end of 2017.[13] After the Cowboys Round 7 loss to the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Feldt spent time in the Queensland Cup for the Northern Pride before earning an NRL recall in Round 24 to replace Matthew Wright. He scored 2 tries in the Cowboys 22-10 win over Souths.[14] Feldt finished off the year with him playing in 10 matches and scoring 7 tries.

2015

In January, Feldt was a member of the newly established QAS Emerging Maroons squad.[15] On 31 January and 1 February, he again played in the Auckland Nines.[16] He played in Round 2 and Round 3 before spending a big part of the season playing for the Townsville Blackhawks in the Queensland Cup.[17][18] On 3 May, he represented the Queensland Residents against the New South Wales Residents, playing at centre and scoring a try in Queensland's 36-32 win at Langlands Park.[19][20] He returned to first grade in Round 24, scoring a hat-trick of tries in the match against the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium, which the Cowboys won 50-16.[21][22]

On 4 October, in the Cowboys' Grand Final match against the Brisbane Broncos, Feldt scored a try shortly after the full-time siren which levelled the scores and gave Johnathan Thurston a chance to win the match. Feldt scored in the corner after Thurston, pressured by Broncos front rowers Adam Blair and Sam Thaiday, was forced to pass to Michael Morgan on the final play who made a break down the right edge and flick passed to Feldt after drawing a defender. Thurston missed the subsequent kick after it hit the upright. Feldt then produced a kick off that forced a mistake from Broncos halfback Ben Hunt which gave the Cowboys the field position required for Thurston to kick the winning field goal to win the match 17-16.[23][24] Feldt finished off his premiership winning 2015 season having played in 9 matches, scoring 8 tries and kicking 1 goal.[25]

2016

On 2 February, Feldt was named in the Cowboys' 2016 NRL Auckland Nines squad.[26] On 21 February, he was a member of the Cowboys' 2016 World Club Challenge winning side, starting on the wing in the side's 38-4 victory over the Leeds Rhinos at Headingley Stadium.[27] On 5 May, he was named on the wing in QRL journalist Tony Webeck's Queensland Residents team of the past 10 years.[28] Feldt finished 2016 as the Cowboys' top try scorer, with 15 tries in 24 games.[29]

2017

In January, Feldt was a member of the QAS Emerging Origin squad.[30] In Round 4 of the 2017 NRL season, he played his 50th NRL game. On 17 May, he re-signed with the Cowboys until the end of the 2020 season. On October 1, Feldt started on the wing in the Cowboys' 2017 NRL Grand Final loss to the Melbourne Storm.

For the second straight season, Feldt finished as the Cowboys' top try scorer, scoring 15 tries in 28 games.
