One is a premiership winner, the other an emerging talent but both Kyle Feldt and Shane Wright have re-signed with the North Queensland Cowboys.
Feldt has inked a four-year extension until the end of 2024 and Wright has re-signed for the 2021 season.
Feldt’s debut came back in the 2013 season and has since scored 75 tries in 117 games to date.
The local product has been a fan favourite and drew nothing but praise from Cowboys General Manager of Football, Peter Parr.
“Our club was set up for players like Kyle Feldt,” Cowboys Director of Football Peter Parr said.
“He was born and raised in Townsville, came through our junior system, was part of our under 20s program and has gone on to forge a great career in the NRL.
“Now with a new four-year deal it all but ensures he will play his whole career with the Cowboys, which is wonderful for him and wonderful for the club.”
As for Wright, a Prosperine Brahmans junior, he joined the Cowboys from the Gold Coast Titans in 2017.
He was also praised by Parr for his contributions when called upon.
“Wrighty spent a couple of years at the Gold Coast, but we were able to bring him home and he’s been a great contributor since he’s been at the club,” Parr said.
“There is no doubt his best football is in front of him, he’s learnt what it takes to cut it at NRL level and he’s a player we have some very high expectations for over the next couple of seasons.”
