Griffin Neame was signed to the Cowboys’ New Zealand Academy and moved to Australia prior to the 2019 season.

A workhorse middle forward, Neame enjoyed a stellar 2019 with the Townsville Blackhawks and was rewarded with a Junior Kiwis berth at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old spent the 2020 pre-season on a training block with the Cowboys before returning to the Blackhawks only to have the season cancelled by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Neame has continued to impress since joining North Queensland’s NRL squad on a development contract for the 2021 season and will be gunning for a Queensland Cup debut with the Blackhawks early in the season.
