Kasey takes the mantle of the player with the most isolated beginnings from Mitch Langerak, by virtue of beginning his game, in Cloncurry some 10hrs drive from Mitch's hometown of Tieri, both in Queensland.
Kasey is the 2nd eldest of 4 brothers who began playing together in Cloncurry some 120kms east of Mt. Isa where Kasey had to go to improve his game.
Eventually moving to Brisbane at 13yrs of age under the tutelage of Mike Mulvey, Kasey would go on to earn the first of his 12 caps in the Oceania Nations Cup win over Fiji in 1998.
A town of under 5,000 people Cloncurry didn't have an official club in the late 80's so the kids played in 4 teams amongst themselves, but it appears that may now have been rectified.
Many thanks to Kasey's mum Judy for filling in the gaps.
Kasey is now establishing his coaching credentials in Norway having built a career out of the most unlikely beginnings.
