This Club has a great culture and I can’t wait to be back at North Sydney Oval.”

Kurtis spoke about his re-signing with the Club, “I’m proud to sign with the Bears for 2019. I’m excited about the challenges of taking the next step in my footy career and getting the chance to work with Jason Taylor who’s had a lot of NRL experience both as a player and a coach.”
