Taumalolo's multi-million dollar Cowboys deal is a steal - Johns - Sporting News

Matthew Johns argues the Cowboys got Jason Taumalolo at a bargain price for $1 million a season, saying his impact is worth double.

Taumalolo put pen to paper on one of the richest NRL deals in history, staying loyal to the Cowboys on a $10 million ten-year contract that should see out his career.

Ranked as the best forward in the game, the 24-year-old was in hot demand as the Warriors attempted to lure him back home, but North Queensland's monster deal was too good to refuse.

While it seems like a lot of money, seven-figure salaries have become a commonality in 2017 with Jack Bird, Anthony Milford, Shaun Johnson, Cooper Cronk and Ashley Taylor all joining the million dollar club.

If Taumalolo put himself on the open market, Johns believes he...

Thurston back at Cowboys training - NRL.COM

Johnathan Thurston has returned to training for the 2018 pre-season, and the North Queensland Cowboys co-captain is wasting no time getting back into it after so much time out of the game. 

It comes after a season-ending shoulder injury the playmaker sustained in State of Origin II, which forced him to miss the Cowboys' charge to the grand final where they were beaten by the Melbourne Storm. 

"It's nice to be back, that's for sure, I had a busy off-season so it's good to be back around the boys and I've got four weeks of hard work now before Christmas," Thurston said. 

"It's been a busy break, obviously with the shoulder as well I was doing a lot of travelling as well so it's nice now that the shoulder is just about fully healed, I've got full range in it and it's just about getting strength back into it and I can do that… over the next four weeks."

Matt Scott visits Heatley Primary School - Townsville Bulletin

HE HAS not played football since March but North Queensland Cowboys co-captain Matt Scott is still treated like a rock star by Townsville students.

Scott was swamped as he visited Heatley Primary School as part of the Cowboys’ adopt-a-school program yesterday to referee a game of touch football before he was hit with all the hard questions by young Prep students.

“It’s good to get (a visit in) so soon back into training and before the year finishes,” he said.

“They like to ask who my best friend is, if I know Johnathan Thurston. They’re always very random and a lot of fun.”

Morgan plays down long-term Roos role - Fiji Times

Kangaroos five-eighth Michael Morgan is not getting ahead of himself, refusing to buy into suggestions that he is Australia's long-term five-eighth.

The 25-year-old's comments come as the Kangaroos before their Rugby League World Cup final match-up against England last night, with Morgan a huge part of why Australia's tournament has been so successful.

The North Queensland Cowboys star has played four games in the No.6 jersey, setting up four tries and scoring two of his own, with his four line breaks for the tournament the third highest of any Australian player — only bettered by flyers Billy Slater and Valentine Holmes.

With future immortal Johnathan Thurston retiring from representative football this year, Morgan has taken his opportunity to show that the Kangaroos are in good hands heading into the future.

However, Morgan is his own harshest critic and still believes improvement...

McLean worth the wait for Cowboys - NRL.COM

McLean worth the wait for Cowboys

It took a year for North Queensland to find the right replacement for 2015 premiership-winning prop James Tamou and Cowboys coach Paul Green insists it will be worth the wait.

When former Storm prop Jordan McLean arrives in Townsville for pre-season training in the new year it will be on the back of a World Cup campaign with the Kangaroos and an NRL premiership.

The 26-year-old will be in his prime and is the style of front-rower Green wanted when Tamou left for Penrith at the end of the 2016 season.

The physical parallels between McLean and Tamou are uncanny. Both stand 196cm tall with McLean, at 115kg, just edging Tamou on the scales.

Both are awkward customers to handle and have ball skills which...
