Valentine Holmes is back in the NRL after the the North Queensland Cowboys confirmed his signing on a six-year deal – ending his quest to become a New York Jet in the NFL.
“This is a wonderful signing for our club,” Cowboys director of football Peter Parr said.
“It wasn’t long ago that Valentine was one of the best players in the competition before his courageous decision to go to the NFL. His form in 2018 was as good as any player in the NRL, particularly in the second half of that season.
“He’s a proven big game player, he’s won a grand final and he’s played some terrific football for both Queensland and Australia.
“Valentine has been a top-class performer at wing and fullback and we’ve made no secret we had a desire to strengthen our outside back stocks.”
