Cowboys round up million-dollar Coote

LACHLAN Coote has become a million dollar Cowboy.

The 2015 NRL premiers have finally secured the premiership fullback’s signature to an extended contract until the end of 2018.

Several rival NRL clubs had shown interest in Coote, who played a big part in North Queensland’s epic 17-16 grand final win over Brisbane last October.

The club was understood to have been struggling to fit him under its salary cap after signing winger Antonio Winterstein last week, but confirmed today a deal had been done.
