Dibb: People apologise for asking for my signature but I still think it's the coolest thing in the world

In the third episode of the club’s new ‘Cowboys Saloon’ podcast, in partnership with Triple M and Toyota, host Elliott Lovejoy sits down with NRLW Co-Captain Kirra Dibb to talk about being forced to give up rugby league at 10 years old, the inaugural year of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys NRLW side and signing a multi-year contract until the end of 2026.

The 26-year-old then spoke about what new NRLW Head Coach Ricky Henry has brought to the club and how his approach to the upcoming season has instilled confidence into the side.
