Jason Taumalolo is our loose forward this week

Jason Taumalolo has signed a 10-year contract at North Queensland Cowboys, the longest deal ever awarded to a player in the NRL.

The Kiwi international forward has been linked with a potential move to the NFL, but will now spend the rest of his career with the Cowboys.

The deal is reportedly worth Aus$10 million to last year’s NRL player of the year Taumalolo.

“I’m very proud to be able to say that I’m staying a Cowboy for life,” said Taumalolo.

“Obviously to throw myself into another game, the negatives outweighed the positives.

“It was all about securing my future and obviously the opportunities that I have playing for this club, to be playing for this club for the rest of my career, is a big one for me.”
