NRL: Cowboys rein in Elliot

The North Queensland Cowboys have snapped up outside back Brendan Elliot on a one-year deal for the 2022 NRL season.

The Cowboys are priced at 33/1 to go all the way and win the 2022 NRL grand final but making finals would be seen as a big success in the campaign ahead.

Experienced campaigner

Elliot has plenty of experience in the NRL having made 66 appearances over seven seasons in the competition and will add strength-in-depth to the Cowboys ranks.

The 28-year-old has represented the Sydney Roosters, Newcastle Knights, Gold Coast Titans and Manly Sea Eagles and most recently spent time in the English Super League.

He spent the whole of the 2021 season with Leigh Centurions and make his mark when scoring three times in 11 games.

Elliot is now back on Aussie soil and will link up with his new teammates this week. The Cowboys believe he will be a valuable addition to their squad as he can play in a number of positions.

Versatile performer

He has split his time between fullback, wing and centre so that versatility will be crucial.

"We are thrilled to sign a player of Brendan’s experience and character so late in the pre-season," Cowboys General Manager of Football Micheal Luck said.

"Brendan adds genuine experience, depth and competition to our outside backs, which is valuable in any season, but amplified in 2022 with the uncertainty the pandemic could have on player availability during the year."
