He might not be the most recognised forward, but he is the hard-working, under-rated forward that all clubs need – and Scott Bolton has made the decision to re-sign with the Cowboys for a further year, until the end of the 2013 season.
Bolton, who is in his seventh year at the club, has played nine games in 2012 so far, and with an appearance in 82 games so far, the 25-year old back-rower believes that his best footy is yet to come.
â€œOne of my goals was to play 100 games for the Cowboys and this new contract is going to help me achieve that,â€ Bolton said.
â€œIâ€™ve had problems with a few injuries in the last couple of years, but Iâ€™m over those and I feel like Iâ€™ve started to play more like Iâ€™m capable of in the last few weeks.
â€œHopefully I can finish off this year by contributing to what could be a very exciting time for the Cowboys and then I can look forward to being with the club again in 2013.â€
Peter Parr, the Cowboys General Manager of Football, said that it was the recent form of Bolton that saw him rewarded with a new contract.
â€œHeâ€™s shown in recent weeks that when heâ€™s injury-free and on top of his game, heâ€™s a valuable member of our NRL squad,â€ Parr said.
â€œHeâ€™s a strong runner, a good defender and we believe he has the potential to be one of our better forwards in the future.â€
