Jacob Timpano is ready for action with new club North Queensland Fury.
"I've had a tough couple of years ... hopefully a change of scenery will be a change of luck," he told the Townsville Bulletin.
"I'm really looking forward to having a good pre-season and staying injury-free.
"To be involved in a new team, a new franchise is exciting," Timpano added.
"It was a tough decision but I looked at the squad Fergie's putting together and the way Fergie's wanting to do things up here and a change is always good."
