Kelepi Tanginoa

The North Queensland Cowboys have added Kelepi Tanginoa to their 2015 NRL squad with the Parramatta Eels back-rower signing a two-year contract to come to North Queensland.

The 20-year-old, who represented New South Wales at under-20s Origin level last year, has played 13 NRL matches for the Eels.

“We believe Kelepi is one of the best young back-row talents in the NRL and expect he will thrive with the Cowboys,” North Queensland’s general manager – football Peter Parr said.

“He’ll be determined to become a regular first grader in 2015 and he’ll get the opportunity to do that with us.

“We’re confident he will be a long-term success and our members and fans will thoroughly enjoy watching him play his footy.”
