Veteran North Queensland prop Scott Bolton has been rewarded for stepping up in Matt Scott's absence, re-signing with the NRL club for another two seasons.

Bolton, 30, inked a new deal that will keep him at the Cowboys until the end of the 2019 season after emerging as an on-field leader in Test prop Scott's absence.

Bolton is considered a Queensland State of Origin game two bolter after impressing since Scott suffered a season-ending knee injury in March.

He has found a new lease of life in his 11th NRL season after making his debut with the Cowboys as a 19-year-old in 2007.

Local product Bolton has played 190 games for North Queensland.

"I've been fortunate to have played my whole career in my home region, and I've loved sharing in the success we've had with my teammates and with our members and fans," Bolton said.

"To be able to do what you love while sharing it with family and friends week-in, week-out is truly special."

Bolton's new deal further bolsters the Cowboys pack next year after Scott, Jason Taumalolo, John Asiata and Gavin Cooper all re-signed with the club this season.

"Aside from being a very good footballer, he is a true team man and is someone our younger forwards turn to for advice and guidance," Cowboys football manager Peter Parr said of Bolton.

"He was huge for us in our premiership year in 2015 and is this season playing what I believe is some of his best football."
