Young Cowboys forward signs new deal

John Asiata

Enjoying a prolonged starting stint in light of some injuries to other players, John Asiata has shined and made the most of it and has since been rewarded as a result.

Asiata, a young, emerging forward, has been re-signed by the North Queensland Cowboys for a further two seasons until the end of 2017.

The club are excited that he has opted to stay with the club and look forward to helping him develop as a player.

“John is a fantastic young player and the club is delighted that he will continue his football and personal development with the Cowboys,” Cowboys General Manager of Football Peter Parr said.

“He is improving with every match and we look forward to him continuing his career at the club that gave him his NRL debut.”

Playing in 13 NRL games over the past two seasons, his debut came in Rd 12 of 2014, as he has cemented a spot in the Cowboys top 17 each week.

For Asiata himself, he is pleased to have re-signed with the club that has given him support.

“The Cowboys have been brilliant for my rugby league career and I look forward to continuing to represent the club on and off the field,” he said.

“(Cowboys head coach) Paul Green gave me my NRL start and I’m loving running around with my Cowboys teammates each weekend.”
