All teams have workhorses and superstars in their forward pack, whilst other players are toilers, and just go out there and to their job. For Ricky Thorby, he is a toiler.
Not a superstar forward by any means, but he knows what he has to do as a player, and the Cowboys have seen and acknowledged that, with the decision to extend Thorby’s contract for a further two seasons.
Thorby has played for the Cowboys in 13 games this year, after making his debut for the club in Rd 5 against the Canberra Raiders, with the club pleased at how Thorby has gone for them.
â€œRicky has seen the results of a lot of hard work and everyone at the club is happy that heâ€™s had such a good season with us this year,â€ Cowboys General Manager â€“ Football Peter Parr said.
â€œHeâ€™s become a regular in our forward pack and we believe that will continue to be the case for the next two years.â€
Thorby himself is pleased with the direction that the club is heading in, and is excited to be a part of it.
â€œThe Cowboys are a great club to be at,â€ Thorby said.
â€œYou can tell we are moving in a positive direction and that there are good times ahead.â€
