He might not be as young as he once was but the talent is still there, something the North Queensland Cowboys see, too – as they announce that they have re-signed veteran centre Brent Tate for the 2014 season.
With speculation mounting for some time on what his future would hold, the club got the deal done and the veteran centre will remain in Townsville, a club he enjoys playing for and a city he loves living in with his family.
â€œItâ€™s a great club here at the Cowboys and one I wanted to remain part of for a little longer,â€ Tate said.
â€œMy family also really enjoys living in North Queensland so what’s a payday loan itâ€™s great weâ€™ve been able to come to an agreement on at least one more year.â€
The club are also thrilled at the news, with General Manager of Football Peter Parr highlighting the positive influence that the veteran has had on players both on and off the field.
â€œHeâ€™s part of our leadership group and a great example to our young blokes on what being a professional footballer is all about,â€ Parr said.
â€œTateyâ€™s one of the best outside backs in the game and as well as being a regular in our starting team, heâ€™s also able to mentor our younger players who are trying to reach the high levels he has.â€
