The North-Queensland Cowboys have announced the signing of Dally M winner Ben Barba on a one-year deal.

The 29-year old former Bulldog, Bronco, and Shark will return after an outstanding season with St. Helens in the super league, leading the try scoring tally with 26.

The Sharks premiership winner is a product of Mackay in North Queensland, and will return home after St. Helens granted his release.

“Ben’s form this year for St Helens has been of the highest standard. He’s been the best fullback if not the best player in the English Super League,” Cowboys director of football Peter Parr said.

“He is from Mackay and has always had a desire to play for the Cowboys, but for whatever reasons the stars never aligned until now.

“Ben has been looking to return to the NRL and with an opening at the fullback position at our club it presented the opportunity for him to do that.”
