The North Queensland Cowboys have re-signed trio Tom Duffy, Jack Gosiewski and Jamayne Taunoa-Brown as they finalise their roster for both 2023 and 2024.
Duffy, who is a homegrown junior and came through the Townsville Academy and respective Cowboys programs, is a player the club is highly keen on.
At the moment, Duffy plies his trade with the Cowboys feeder side, the Townsville Blackhawks, where is slowly showcasing his skills.
“Retaining local talent is always our priority when it comes to recruiting and considering Tom has been a part of our systems since he was 14, we are thrilled to extend him for another two years,” Cowboys General Manager of Football Micheal Luck said.
“He has developed well in his first season against men this year and we have high hopes for him moving forward.”
Gosiewski, who has played seven games for the Cowboys, re-signs after what has been his first season with the club in 2023 and the club likes his versatility in being able to play on the edge or in the middle.
“Jack has been terrific since arriving at the club,” continued Luck.
“He is a great cultural fit and he provides us with versatility on the field through his ability to play both on the edge and as a middle.”
Taunoa-Brown is no stranger to Todd Payten having played under him in the past at the New Zealand Warriors and since joining the Cowboys, Taunoa-Brown has made 31 appearances.
“Jamayne probably flies a little under the radar due to some of the high-profile forwards in our squad, but has become an important member of our pack,” said Luck.
“He is excellent defensively, skilful with the ball and is highly regarded by our coaching staff.”
