A rare feat in the world of rugby league nowadays is loyalty and thus remaining a one-club man. Scott Bolton will be one, however, having re-signed a new 2-year deal to stay with the North Queensland Cowboys.
Since debuting as a 19-year old in 2007, Bolton is currently in his 11th season with the club and could not be happier to continue his involvement with them.
“I’m really pleased to be able to continue on with this great club,” Bolton said.
“I’ve been fortunate to have played my whole career in my home region, and I’ve loved sharing in the success we’ve had with my teammates and our members and fans.
“To be able to do what you love while sharing it with family and friends week-in, week-out is truly special.”
The Innisfail junior is highly rated by Cowboys fans and in the absence of Matt Scott, has led the Cowboys forward pack alongside boom lock, Jason Taumalolo.
For the club, Bolton is a player that knows what it means to be a Cowboy and one that is valued and cherished at the club.
“Scott typifies what the Cowboys are about,” said General Manager – Football Peter Parr.
“Aside from being a very good footballer, he is a true team man and is someone our younger forwards turn to for advice and guidance.
“He was huge for us in our premiership year in 2015 and is this season playing what I believe is some of his best football.”
