North Queensland have bolstered their ranks by re-signing prop Matt Scott and hooker Anthony Watts.
Queensland Origin player Scott will remain with the Cowboys for a further four years while Watts will be with the Townsville club for another year after the pair penned deals this week.
“I’m stoked, really excited,” said Scott. “We have a great coaching staff and player roster here and I am really looking forward to the next four years.”
Cowboys Executive Director Peter Parr is pleased to be retaining the in-form prop.
“Matt is a high quality State of Origin front rower who has his best football in front of him,” Parr says.
“Matt’s been with the club since school and we are delighted he has recommitted for another four years.”
Watts has agreed to extend his contract for an additional year, while three new signings will also boost the side’s ranks for the 2010 season.
The club has signed 19-year-old Leeson Ah Mau, a front rower from the Warriors, to a two-year contract, and his brother Isaac Ah Mau (Brisbane Easts, QRL) to a one-year agreement with a one-year option.
Also making the move north will be exciting 19-year-old Broncos outside back Will Tupou, who joins the Toyota Cowboys in 2010 on a two-year deal.
