The clever forward had already activated a trigger in his existing contract to play-on at the Gabba in 2022 and has now put pen to paper on a new deal ensuring he will remain in Lions colours for at least three more years.

The 27-year-old has cemented himself as a key component of Chris Fagan’s side since arriving at the end of 2018, averaging a goal and four tackles per game in the 58 appearances he’s made for the Club.

He assumed more responsibility in 2021 by accepting a position in the leadership group and has recorded career best numbers with 23 goals and 15 goal assists from 17 games to date.

McCarthy said he had found a home at the Lions and was thrilled to have his future with the Club locked-away for three more years.
