Cowboys confirm signing of Storm's McLean


The North Queensland Cowboys confirmed the signing of forward Jordan McLean from Melbourne Storm on a three-year deal beginning in 2018.

McLean, 25, has played 69 NRL games for Storm since making his debut in 2013, including all three so far this year.

Cowboys general manager of football Peter Parr said the addition of the powerful McLean would be a huge boost.

"Jordan's a wonderful young player who's come through a very good developmental pathways system at Melbourne, so we know that we'll be getting both a quality player and a quality person," he said.

"We have always said we would look to add to our roster in that front-row position and we're thrilled Jordan has agreed to terms from 2018 onwards."

Storm sit top of the NRL ladder after three wins from as many games, while the Cowboys are sixth with two victories.
