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.
â€œJohn is a fantastic young player and the club is delighted that he will continue his football and personal development with the Cowboys,â€ Cowboys General Manager of Football Peter Parr said.
â€œHe is improving with every match and we look forward to him continuing his career at the club that gave him his NRL debut.â€
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.
â€œThe Cowboys have been brilliant for my rugby league career and I look forward to continuing to represent the club on and off the field,â€ he said.
â€œ(Cowboys head coach) Paul Green gave me my NRL start and Iâ€™m loving running around with my Cowboys teammates each weekend.â€
