Bio brought to you by Local Search

Mareeba product Ben Hampton returned home to North Queensland for the 2017 season after a lengthy stint south to take up a three-year deal with the Cowboys.

He spent the previous four seasons playing for the Melbourne Storm, racking up 35 appearances, including a spot in the final 17 for the 2016 NRL grand final against the Cronullla Sharks.

In his 2016 NRL campaign, he played 19 games, averaging 40 running metres and 10 tackles, while scoring one try and setting up three.

In his first season as a Cowboy, Hampton had a strong year and was a mainstay of Paul Green’s bench rotation, the 25-year often called upon to play in a number of positions, including fullback, in the halves and as a back-up hooker to first-choice No.9 Jake Granville.

After making his Cowboys debut in Round 2 against the Broncos in that 21-20 golden point cliffhanger, Hampton played in all but one of the team’s remaining games in 2017, including a stint in the halves as Green contemplated life without inspirational co-captain Johnathan Thurston.
