Cowboy #271

New South Welshman Jordan McLean came to the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys for the 2018 season on a three-year deal after a successful career at the Storm.

McLean played 86 games over five seasons for the Melbourne-based club, with the 2017 grand final win over his future club the Cowboys the highlight.

After tasting representative honours with NSW Country in 2016, McLean was on the fringe of Test and State of Origin selection during his final season at the Storm in 2017.

After helping the Storm to the NRL title, McLean was selected in the Kangaroos’ squad for the Rugby League World Cup, playing in all three of Australia’s pool games.
The club’s marquee recruit in the off-season, Jordan McLean’s Cowboys career got off to a challenging start.

Just four games into his first campaign as a Cowboy, McLean suffered a serious Lisfranc injury which would keep him on the sidelines for four months.

McLean’s return in Round 20 coincided with a change in fortune for the Cowboys. Paul Green’s side won four of their last six games, with a healthy McLean playing a major role in the strong finish.

As a reward for his brilliant late season form, McLean was selected in the Kangaroos side for the Test Matches against New Zealand and Tonga.

In 2019, McLean emerged as North Queensland’s most consistent forward, playing 22 of a possible 24 games and claimed the Players’ Player Award at the end of season presentation.

The 30-year-old played in every game game of the 2021 season, tackling at a team-best 97.6 tackle effectiveness.

McLean activated a two-year player option to remain at the Cowboys through the end of the 2022 season.
