Kevin Campion made his NRL debut in 1993 with the Gold Coast Seagulls, playing 44 games for the club before signing with St. George for the start of the 1996 season.
Campion was a constant for the Dragons that season and took the field in the second row for the Dragons in the grand final, although his side were beaten by Manly 20-8.
The forward wouldn’t have to wait long for his maiden premiership, winning in both 1998 and 2000 under Wayne Bennett at the Broncos.
Campion signed for the Warriors in 2001 and played in their 2002 grand final loss to the Roosters, as he became one of only five players to have played in grand finals for three different teams.
All up, Campion played 241 NRL first grade games, and represented Queensland in the State of Origin series four times.
Now, the 46-year-old works for Identified Services, who provide quality services to the school, retail, fitness and commercial industries all around Queensland.
The company also specialise in providing partners with products in cleaning, protective coating, labor hire, recruitment and building and yard maintenance.

Campion is still a fan of the game, and has given us his tips for round five of the NRL season!

Raiders vs Bulldogs
GIO Stadium, 7.50pm
“That’s a shoe-in for Canterbury, I used to go for the Dogs as a kid, and Canberra are wooden spooners this year I think. I think the Dogs will win comfortably.”

Sharks vs Roosters
Southern Cross Group Stadium, 6.00pm

Tigers vs Storm
Mt Smart Stadium, 3.00pm

Warriors vs Cowboys
Mt Smart Stadium, 5.30pm

Eels vs Panthers
