North Queensland forward Coen Hess has signed a three-year extension with the Cowboys, and will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.

The 22-year-old has 59 games to his name, and has already appeared for the Maroons on five occasions.

Hess has turned into one of the games best young forwards, after 50 games and 20 tries over the past two seasons.

“This club means everything to me. Growing up in Mt Isa, I have lived and breathed the Cowboys for as long as I can remember,” Hess told

“Getting my first taste of the NRL with the Cowboys was a dream come true and this club has become a massive part of my life.

“I’ve never wanted to play for any other club other than the Cowboys. Matt Scott and Paul Bowman are legends of this club and are two players I have always looked up to. They are both one club players and hopefully one day I can be considered in the same regard as them.

“I’m extremely passionate about the North Queensland region. The lifestyle here is second to none, I grew up here and I hope to live here for the rest of my playing career and beyond.”


  1. Good news for Cowboys fans, but can you imagine if they had held onto Kikau? A back row of:

    11. Kikau
    12. Hess
    13. Taumalolo

    Would’ve definitely given coaches headaches and halves nightmares.

    • Definitely a “beast” back row. Great re-signing for the Cowboys. I would have welcomed Hess at Souths for sure just like the supporters of most other clubs.

  2. I guess Kikau didn’t have really deep ties to the club or area, being Fijian.
    Hess was impressive before last year. Not as good last season.

    • At the time he was a prop and wasn’t going to get playing time over a prop rotation of Scott, Tamou, Hannatt and Bolton. Green stuck loyal and it was great, but cost them a few juniors in Kikau and Ponga.

    • He has shown what he is capable of based on this I doubt you could call him overrated, There is no doubt he had an ordinary year in 2018 but he is still only young and will continued to improve on what he has shown he is capable, consistency will come with the more time he is on the paddock. Great resigning for both the Cowboys and Hess as he is a local junior. There is plenty of competition for spots this year at the Cowboys so expect Hess to be working his arse off to retain his.

    • The more delusional rabbits fans gone from this site the better. I for 1 won’t miss reg/Nero endless paragraphs of complete garbage.

      1 of your toothless rabbits fans said in his mind the rooster haven’t won a premiership yet, drugs are a big problem around Redfern

      • More senseless garbage pouring from another conceited, arrogant roosters fan……just mindless dribble back to back all your comments are the same
        think the drug problem might be closer to your teams home…lol

        • Is this another one of Reggie’s accounts since Nero got banned? You seem to be sticking up for him in every comment?

        • I’m still here you big mouthed clown. Pity this is a virtual site and not a face to face meeting place. I would like to personally educate you on how not to drag family members of contributors into an argument if you have no intelligence or wit to come at someone any other way I suggest you keep your mouth shut before someone closes it for you one day.

          Btw, Back2back19 you don’t fool me. You are clearly a secondary account for a gutless tr0ll on this site who needs backup.

  3. Yepppp….You’d be silly enough to think that 2 people couldnt agree with what you say….lol
    No Im not an account of anybody elses…..but i will stick up for any souths supporter you are offensive & rude to and who you wrongly accuse of things as i wont tolerate your bullying tactics and the garbage that spews from your keyboard

    • You said you will stick will stick up for any rabbits fan? Just like I was sticking up for a fellow roosters while dribble numbers that you made up in your head.

      You also said you won’t tolerate bullying tactics? Realistically what do you think you are going to do? 5 words and your offended and crying. Let your husband reg do your talking your an embarrassment the reg/Nero household haha

    • @ Zero Tackle

      Will it take a lawsuit against Zero Tackle for allowing these continuously uncensored libellous personal attacks against family? Remove this post and this clown from this site before I take legal action.

    • If your going to comment atleast learn how to reply, I know your knew because reg only let you join recently but it’s not that hard.

      Should of excepted a rabbits fan struggles to use the internet

      • whats hard is listening to your garbage and rude offensive language….but im quite enjoying the banter….haha

        • How are you listening to me? Hahaha I thought were reading, don’t try argue with people that are superior in every way to you

          Rude and offensive language hahahaha

      • “I know your knew”

        It’s “NEW”, you dunce! Just because like Reg I don’t waste my time posting here much any more doesn’t mean that we will let you get away with running your motor mouth.

        “don’t try argue with people that are superior”

        You can’t even form a complete sentence you “semi-erect” bipedal. As you say yourself; “it’s not that hard”. Is THAT why you are frustrated? Because you are only semi-erect? Clearly, you are an inferior little grub that doesn’t even show any signs of rudimentary intelligence or a basic public school education. Go back to your cave you knuckle-dragging troglodyte before I send you back to the ice age!


    keep it up ….thinking your superior…..comical & arrogant…lol

    you wish you were superior…

    • Good comment hahaha I win

      You are a hypocrite, you have called me a clown and princess countless times now. And you don’t see me crying,

      • hahaha…..of course you think you win….lol

        • learn what banter is, and it’s not calling someone arragant because they hurt your feeling.

          You have nothing, my 4 year old has better comebacks than you

          Leave delusional dribble of all my comments and I won’t make you cry anymore. Stay in your lane

      • @ Back2back19

        “you have called me a clown and princess countless times now. And you don’t see me crying”

        That’s because “semi-erect” Neanderthals don’t have fully developed tear ducts princess.

        • @BacktoBack19
