The North Queensland Cowboys have announced the re-signing of NRLW co-captain Kirra Dibb on a two-year extension, which will see the talented halfback remain at the club until the end of 2026.
The 26-year-old was part of the Cowboys inaugural NRLW season in 2023 and will now remain in Townsville for another two years.
Dibb made nine appearances for the Cowboys this season for five try assists, five-line break assists, 119 tackles, and an average of 209 kicking metres per game.
She represented the Sky Blues twice – 2019 and 2022 – along with playing an instrumental role for the Newcastle Knights in their 2022 NRLW Grand Final win.
Dibb has been a mainstay for the North Sydney Bears in the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership since 2019, guiding the foundation club to two consecutive Minor Premierships in 2022-23.
She was also named Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership Player of the Year at last year’s Brad Fittler Medal.
Since making her debut in 2019, the Kincumber Colts junior has made 27 appearances in the NRLW and will continue to bring valued experience to the young Cowboys team.
“We’re very pleased to extend Kirra,” Cowboys NRLW coach Ben Jeffries told cowboys.com.au.
“She is a marquee half in the game and truly invested in what we’re trying to develop up here in North Queensland.
“She is highly driven on and off the field and is a great role model for players aspiring to be in the NRLW.
“Being one of our co-captains, Kirra will also assist in developing our younger halves coming through our pathway.”
