Since joining the North Queensland Cowboys in 2017, Peter Hola has slowly become an elite rising star.
On the back of his good form in the lower grades, Hola has been awarded both a top 30 spot and a new long-term deal at the Cowboys.
The new deal will see Hola remain at the Cowboys until the 2022 season.
Performing strongly for the Northern Pride U20’s side, Hola is held in high regard by the club.
“We think Pete is one of the better young forwards in the game,” Cowboys Director of Football Peter Parr said.
“To be able to play Queensland Cup last year and hold his own at such a young age in the middle of the field, showed us we had a special talent on our hands.
“Even though we had him on contract for another two years, we thought it was the right time to extend him, which shows how excited we are about his future at our club.”
Setting him with goals and challenges as he gets older and more mature, Cowboys coach Paul Green has been pleased with Hola’s development.
“Pete is progressing really nicely and we think his development is heading in the right direction,” Green said.
“He has met every challenge we’ve set so far and we’re really excited to have him in our top squad for at least the next four seasons.”
