The North Queensland Cowboys have announced premiership-winning hooker Jake Granville has agreed to a three-year contract extension which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2021 season.

Granville joined the Cowboys in 2015 from Queensland rivals the Brisbane Broncos and was a major part in the club winning the premiership that same season.

The 29-year-old will play his 100th NRL game this week against the Manly Sea Eagles and Cowboys head coach Paul Green said the club was thrilled to re-sign him for a further three years.

“Jake has been a tremendous asset for this club ever since he arrived at the beginning of 2015 and we are extremely excited he will be a Cowboy for at least another three years,” Green said on the club website.

“He was instrumental in delivering North Queensland its maiden premiership in 2015 and also helped drive the club to a grand final berth last season.

“At this club, we pride ourselves on not just retaining quality players, but quality people and Jake certainly fits that bill – he’s a fantastic player and a fantastic person.”
