Players on the

In te past twenty four hours the North Queensland Cowboys have signed Paul McNicholas, 27, from South Sydney for one season and Paul Rauhihi, 30, from the Bulldogs for two seasons.

Both players will add depth to the club as they struggle to become a competetive club after eight seasons in the NRl and they have still not made the semi finals, whereas the New Zealand Warriors made the semi finals last year and are on track for a top four finish this year.

In other news, Chris McKenna has signed with the Leeds Rhinos for two seasons and will leave Cronulla at the end of the year to take up his position in the U.K and the Sharks will be down one test centre, but it will free up some much needed space under the salary cap.
