Morgan re-signs to 2018

Fullback Michael Morgan has extended his contract with the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys for another three seasons.

The Townsville Brothers junior will continue to play his football at the club up until the end of the 2018 season, and joins Jason Taumalolo as Cowboys players who have committed themselves to North Queensland in the past few weeks.

“I’m really excited and happy with my decision. There’s a good group of boys that we've got here for another couple of years,” Morgan said.

“There’s been a lot of loyalty shown by the boys at the moment so I wasn’t looking to leave, I’m happy here. 

"Greeny is keen for me to stay around which is good to know.”

Morgan made his first grade debut against the Sydney Roosters in 2010 and has played 58 games for North Queensland.

The 24-year-old was one of the Cowboys' leading try-scorers last season with 10.

His breakout performances saw him rewarded with selection in the Kangaroos Four Nations train-on squad and the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII, as well as being voted by Cowboys members as 2014 Members Player.

“It’s important that we keep young players like Michael at the Cowboys,” Football General Manager Peter Parr said.

“He is a dynamic player and we are excited to see Michael develop into a great footballer at the Cowboys.”
