Smith to join Cowboys in 2007

Canberra playmaker Jason Smith has rejected an offer from the Gold Coast Titans and agreed to play for North Queensland in the NRL next year.

The 34-year-old five-eighth came to a decision after consulting his Raiders team-mates and family members.

Smith will play alongside Dally M Medallist Johnathan Thurston in the halves for the Cowboys.

An experienced and clever player like Smith would be the perfect foil for gun halfback Johnathan Thurston, who's been forced to shoulder a huge load for the Cowboys this year.

Smith had told AAP earlier that the one-year offers from the Cowboys and Titans were similar financially and he would enjoy the lifestyles of both Townsville and the Gold Coast.
