The Cowboys are building nicely for 2018.
Having already re-signed stars Johnathan Thurston, Kyle Feldt and John Asiata; attracted Jordan McLean from the Storm; and having Matt Scott to return next year from injury; the good news just keeps rolling in from Townsville.
This time, the Cowboys have announced the re-signing of second-rower Gavin Cooper on a new two-year deal, that will see him remain a Cowboy until the end of 2019.
With Cooper tied up, the biggest names remaining off contract in North Queensland are Gideon Gela-Mosby, Scott Bolton and Ray Thompson.
Cooper has played 247 first grade matches for the Cowboys, Panthers and Titans, and 1 Origin match for Queensland.
He was #29 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
