Glenn Hall will stay with North Queensland until at least the end of the 2013 NRL season after agreeing to a one-year contract extension.
The 31-year-old, who was a late pick-up for the Cowboys from English club Bradford before the 2011 season, has proven to be a reliable member of the North Queensland forward pack, playing in 31 of the Cowboys' 36 NRL matches since he came to Townsville.
Hall won a premiership with Manly in 2009 and his experience has proven to be a valuable asset for North Queensland, according to General Manager - Football Peter Parr.
"I don't think anyone could ask for anything more than what Glenn has delivered for this club so far," Parr said.
"We picked up a very handy player when we signed Glenn from England and he's also proven to be an excellent club man.
"He fits in exceptionally well with everything we do here on the field and off it with our extensive community work in North Queensland.
"We wanted him to remain as part of the Cowboys and happily he has agreed to a one-year extension."
Hall has played eight NRL matches in 2012 to take his career total to 125 and he will be in the Cowboys' starting forward pack to face Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium in round 12 of the Telstra Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
"I'm very happy to be here and very excited about signing for next year," Hall said.
"With the way the club's going at the moment, and the guys who have re-signed and going to still be here next year, I think we're going to be a force moving ahead.
"I love it up here and that's made easier by the guys around me."
Hall's decision to re-sign adds to the retention of Ashton Sims, Gavin Cooper and Ray Thompson, whose contract extensions were finalised earlier this month.
