North Queensland coach Paul Green says despite initial misgivings, he’s confident the record contract signed by forward Jason Taumalolo will be a positive for the club.

The 2016 Dally M medallist has signed a 10 year contract believed to be worth in the vicinity of $10 million.

Green (pictured) says after examining the pros and cons of such a lengthy deal, he’s looking forward to building the next generation of Cowboys teams around the Kiwi international.
