Talented youngster re-signs, as Rookie of the Year also joins the Cowboys

Wayne Ulugia

You could tell from the minute he started playing footy in the NYC that he was going to be something special, and for Cowboys utility back Wayne Ulugia, he has been rewarded for that continued solid run of form – signing a new 2-year deal with the Cowboys.

Ulugia, 20, is a Junior Kiwis representative, will play in his 88th NYC game, the record for most games played in the National Youth Competition – with the talented back seen as a future star of the Cowboys NRL team, according to General Football Manager, Peter Parr.

“He has the ability to play at fullback or the wing and has undergone a thorough apprenticeship,” Parr said.

“Wayne’s been part of our full-time NRL squad for the past two years and isn’t that far away from breaking through into our first grade team.

“The coaching staff have been very impressed with his performances for the Pride since he started playing there midway through the year.”

“He’s been with our club since school and I know he’s looking forward to being here for at least another two years.

The club has also signed talented youngster Ethan Lowe, who won the Rookie of the Year in the Intrust Super Cup this year, playing for the Northern Pride.

“He’s had an exceptional year for the Pride and we believe he is ready to take the next step up and play NRL football,” Parr said.
