One of several off-contract players out North Queensland way, they have one less to worry about now, with Kane Linnnet re-signing with the Cowboys for a further two seasons.
Linnett, 27, originally from Shellharbour in NSW, says he is excited to continue his tenure with the Cowboys.
â€œI always wanted to stay here. When I came up from the Roosters at the start of 2012, I havenâ€™t looked back and have thoroughly enjoyed playing with such great teammates and in such a settled environment,” Linnett said.
“This is a fantastic club to play for, and the recent success weâ€™ve had adds to that enjoyment.
â€œIâ€™ve also settled well into the North Queensland lifestyle, having made some great friends away from footy as well.â€
Praised by all involved with the club, Linnett has been a mainstay of their side for several years now. General Manager of Football Peter Parr was one to give that praise to Linnett.
â€œKaneâ€™s ultra-consistent, very professional and a vital member of our team,â€ Parr said.
â€œWeâ€™ve worked very hard to retain as many players as possible, and weâ€™re pleased Kane has chosen to remain with us.
“Weâ€™d like to think we create an environment which gives players the opportunity to play the best footy of their careers, and with blokes like Kane, Antonio and Lachlan, I think youâ€™ll find thatâ€™s the case.â€
