Cowboys release Lowe

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have today granted Ethan Lowe an immediate release from the final year of his contract.

A member of the club’s maiden 2015 premiership-winning squad, Lowe played 108 games over six seasons after debuting in 2013.

Cowboys Director of Football Peter Parr thanked Lowe for his service to the club.

“We are disappointed to see Ethan go, but we felt in the end it was in everyone’s best interest to grant him a release,” Parr said.

“Ethan has been a wonderful player for our club, he appeared in more than 100 games, two grand finals and was an integral part of our first ever premiership.

“Everyone at our club would like to thank Ethan for his contribution and time in Cowboys colours and wish him all the best for the future.”

Lowe also expressed his gratitude to the club and region on Tuesday.

“I would like to thank the Cowboys, members and fans for making my time in North Queensland one of the best experiences of my life,” Lowe said.

“Being part of the 2015 grand final win and the weeks that followed was something I will never forget.

“North Queensland will always hold a special place in my heart.”
