Biography:

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys pulled off a major coup in November by announcing the signing of current Queensland and Australian lock Josh McGuire.

McGuire signed a four-year deal with the Cowboys after securing a release from the Brisbane Broncos.

The Maroons enforcer has long been considered one of the top middle forwards in the NRL and will join a fearsome Cowboys rotation already containing fellow representative stars Matt Scott, Jordan McLean and Jason Taumalolo.

McGuire enters his 11th season in the top grade in 2019 and needs just six more appearances to reach the landmark 200th NRL games milestone.

Aside from a glittering NRL resume, McGuire has also made 11 appearances for Queensland after debuting in 2015 and a further eight for Australia. He also previously made seven appearances for Samoa.

McGuire enjoyed a stellar season in 2018, averaging 117 running metres and 33 tackles across 19 games.
