North Queensland speedster Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow has inked a one-year extension to remain at the Cowboys through 2023.

Tabuai-Fidow had a breakout year for the Cowboys in 2021, playing across the backline in the centres, wing and finishing the season at fullback.

His fine form and scintillating runs scored the Cairns junior a call-up to Queensland's State of Origin side, where he scored on debut in their 20-18 game three victory.

Cowboys' head of football Michael Luck says they envisage the young superstar remaining at the club for many years to come.

"We have been in constant dialogue with Hamiso's management around his development and long-term playing ambitions and we are thrilled to be able to agree to terms until the end of the 2023 season," he said.

"Hamiso now has the opportunity to work on his game under Todd (Payten) and his coaching staff in his preferred position over the next two seasons and grow into what we believe he can be - one of the premier strike backs in the competition.

"Hamiso has the ability to do things on a rugby league field very few other players in our game can. He is also an outstanding young man who we hope is wearing a Cowboys jersey for many years to come."

The 20-year-old has appeared 27 times for North Queensland in two seasons, scoring 14 tries.
