North Queensland Cowboys playmaker Jake Clifford has signed a new deal that will see him stay at the club until the end of 2021.

The 21-year-old has made 21 appearances for the Cowboys since making his first-grade in 2018, scoring three tries.

Cowboys director of football, Peter Parr, said: “We’re delighted to keep one of our really good young players at the club.

“We wanted to ensure we gave Jake some time to keep developing his game.

“It’s often difficult for young halves coming in to first-grade given the pressure on the position they play and we think this extension will allow everyone to be patient while Jake continues to develop his game.

“We have no doubt he will develop in to a really top level NRL half-back and have a long career at the Cowboys.”
