Quartet sign on with Cowboys


The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have extended the contracts of four of their best young talents, including three members of the NYC squad that finished as Toyota Cup runners-up in 2011.

Sam Hoare has signed on until the end of the 2014 season, while Felise Kaufusi, Alex Elisala and Blake Leary have agreed to one-year contract extensions.

Kaufusi, 20, and Elisala, 19, remain part of the Toyota Cup squad this year and will step up to the NRL ranks for the first time in 2013.

A pectoral injury sustained during the pre-season trials has kept Kaufusi off the playing field this season, but the front-rower showed his potential by playing in all 27 games in the Cowboys
