Thorby re-signs with Cowboys


Toyota Cowboys forward Ricky Thorby will stay with North Queensland until at least the end of the 2014 NRL season after agreeing to a two-year contract extension today.

The 27-year-old, who first joined the Cowboys at the end of the 2010 season, is enjoying the best year of his NRL career, becoming a regular member of the fourth-placed NQ line-up.

After making his Cowboys debut in the round five victory against Canberra earlier this year, Thorby has gone on to play another 13 matches with his strong running off the bench being a feature of his performances.

He had a season-high 119 metres against South Sydney in round eight and stood out during the State of Origin period when the Cowboys were without their State of Origin props Matthew Scott and James Tamou.
