The North Queensland Cowboys have made a huge announcement this morning, signing Michael Morgan on a new five-year deal.
The monster deal will see the Townsville local tied to the club until 2023, where he will be 32 when the contract expires.
"I’m stoked to be staying at the Cowboys, a club I grew up supporting and, later in life, proudly playing for," Morgan told the club's website.
"Townsville is my home, I’ve been involved with the Cowboys since I was 17, I made my NRL debut as a Cowboy and all the positives in my career have come from me proudly wearing this great team’s colours.
"To be able to continue that journey and keep playing alongside a great bunch of blokes – and for our excellent coaching staff and our wonderful, passionate fans and members – is pretty special."
Morgan was instrumental in leading the Cowboys to a fairytale Grand Final appearance last season after just scraping through to make the finals in eighth position.
