Neville Costigan

There’s been plenty of interest in veteran forward Neville Costigan since he announced he was returning home from a 12-month stint with English club Hull KR.

I am hearing the Newcastle Knights, one of Costigan’s four former NRL clubs, are keen – but the smokey is the North Queensland Cowboys.

There is even talk that the former Queensland Origin star was spotted in Townsville this week and he would be a handy addition to a pack that has lost strike players Ashton and Tariq Sims.
