Matthew Wright

The North Queensland  Cowboys have added former Cronulla Sharks outside back Matthew Wright to their NRL squad for the 2014 season.

The 23-year-old, who played 62 NRL matches for the Sharks, signed a one-year contract at Cowboys HQ this morning and will join his new teammates at training this afternoon.

“It’s been a really quick process,” Wright said.

“The Cowboys had a vacancy to fill and I’m happy they’ve chosen me so I continue my career up here.

“I already know a couple of the boys and I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of them this afternoon before training.”
