Exciting North Queensland Cowboys hooker Jake Granville has extended his current contract with the club until the end of the 2018 season.

Granville, 26, was contracted until the end of 2016, with the club and player this week finalising a two-year extension following his breakout year in 2015.

He played in all 28 Cowboys matches in 2015, scoring 10 tries and adding invaluable attacking spark to the side out of dummy-half. By the end of the season, Granville ranked first across the entire NRL for total dummy-half runs (189) and dummy-half run metres (1524m).

After starting the season off the bench, Granville made his starting 13 debut for the Cowboys in the team’s round 4 win over the Storm, while a hat-trick of tries three weeks later against the Warriors at 1300SMILES Stadium were among the highlights of his first season in the North.

He was rewarded for his good form by being named the Cowboys’ Players’ Player of the Year at the end-of-season club awards.

Granville said he was pleased to be able to extend his time with the Cowboys.

“I’ve loved every minute of my time here so far and I can’t wait for the new season to start,” Granville said.



  1. More hookers should adapt his style of play he was always on the money when he should be scooting for easy metres from the ruck most hookers don’t run enough. IMO should’ve been clive churchill medalist.

  2. What a first year for a club! Why wouldn’t he re-sign? The Townsville folk will be treating him like royalty for the rest of his career.

    Great player and huge future. Would not be surprised to see the Cowboys there or there abouts at the end of next season.

  3. Great retain, this guy is an excellent player. In the GF it was really noticeable how much better the Cows were when he was on the field.
