Coming off what many regard as a career best season, Kane Linnett and the North Queensland Cowboys have agreed to a new long-term deal for the centre, with Linnett to remain at the club until the end of the 2016 NRL season.
Linnett, who won the Most Improved Playe Award for the Cowboys last season, said he was pleased to have his future settled at the Cowboys.
â€œAfter that initial settling in period went by, I really started to enjoy living in North Queensland and being part of the Cowboys,â€ he said.
â€œBoth the area and the club suit me, I already have some great mates here and you can tell we have a team capable of winning a premiership.â€
The Cowboys themselves are ecstatic to have retained the services of an emerging centre like Linnett, who is close to hitting the 50-game mark in his career.
â€œWe couldnâ€™t have been any happier with how Kane performed in his first season with the Cowboys,â€ Parr said.
â€œHe settled in straight away, had an excellent season in both attack and defence and we think thereâ€™s still more development there in his game.
â€œHe should come into contention for representative football in the near future and itâ€™s a big positive for our club that heâ€™s committed long-term to the Cowboys.â€
