Biography

Former Australian Schoolboy rep (1989) played for Logan City before graduating from the Brisbane Colts to the Broncos’ first grade team in 1990. Cann survived two tackling controversies during 1992 to play a pivotal role in the Broncos' premiership success. Cann scored two fine tries in the 28-8 win over St George in the grand final but missed the club's World Club Challenge win because of injury. After winning another premiership with the Broncos in 1993, he was again involved in a contentious tackle in the club's loss to Wigan in the World Club Challenge at Lang Park the following year. Cann appeared to spear tackle Martin Offiah but a hastily organised international disciplinary tribunal determined that he did not have a case to answer. Cut from the Broncos’ playing roster at the end of 1996 he joined Super League club Adelaide.

    This bloke tackled me in a rep game in under 14s (Brisbane v CQ) - I reckon it was one of the top 5 hardest hits I copped, in 8 years playing league. ;-D
