He finished his NYC career as the competition's highest ever point scorer, with 570 points.[4] In the Grand Final against the New Zealand Warriors, Feldt had the chance to win the premiership for the Cowboys, however he missed an easy conversion on the full-time siren, and the Cowboys lost the match in golden point extra time 31–30.[5] On 16 October 2011, Feldt played for the Junior Kangaroos against the Junior Kiwis, playing on the wing in the 28-16 win at Hunter Stadium.[6] On 2 December 2011, Feldt extended his contract with the Cowboys to the end of the 2014 season.[7]

Playing career

In Round 21 of the 2013 NRL season, Feldt made his NRL debut for the North Queensland Cowboys against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, on the wing in the 30-12 win at 1300SMILES Stadium.[8][9] In his next match in Round 22 against the Penrith Panthers, Feldt scored his first NRL career try in the Cowboys 36-4 win at Penrith Stadium.[10] After the Cowboys Round 23 match against the Gold Coast Titans, in which he scored 2 tries in the 22-10 win at 1300SMILES Stadium, Feldt injured his ankle at training, ending his debut season in the NRL.[11][12] Feldt finished his debut year in the NRL with him playing in 3 matches and scoring 3 tries in the 2013 NRL season.

In February 2014, Feldt played in the Cowboys successful 2014 Auckland Nines squad.[14] Feldt starred in the tournament, finishing as the highest try scorer, alongside Parramatta's Semi Radradra, with 5 tries, and was named Breakout Player of the Tournament. On 26 May 2014, Feldt re-signed with the Cowboys until the end of 2017.[15] After the Cowboys Round 7 loss to the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Feldt spent time in the Queensland Cup for the Northern Pride before earning an NRL recall in Round 24 to replace Matthew Wright, scoring 2 tries in the Cowboys 22-10 win over South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium.[16][17] Feldt finished off the 2014 NRL season with him playing in 10 matches and scoring 7 tries.

On 4 October 2015, in the Cowboys' Grand Final match against the Brisbane Broncos, Feldt scored a try shortly after the full-time siren which levelled the scores and gave Johnathan Thurston a chance to win the match. Feldt scored in the corner after Thurston, pressured by Broncos front rowers Adam Blair and Sam Thaiday, was forced to pass to Michael Morgan on the final play who made a break down the right edge and flick passed to Feldt after drawing a defender. Thurston missed the subsequent kick after it hit the upright. Feldt then produced a kick off that forced a mistake from Broncos halfback Ben Hunt which gave the Cowboys the field position required for Thurston to kick the winning field goal to win the match 17-16.[26][27] Feldt finished off his premiership winning 2015 NRL season having played in 9 matches, scoring 8 tries and kicking 1 goal.[28]

Cowboys backup goal kicker Ethan Lowe would eventually nail the kick from the sideline to win the match for the Cowboys 14-12 at 1300SMILES Stadium.[37] Feldt would some superb form on the wing as the Cowboys did a shock Finals winning run into the 2017 NRL Grand Final.[38][39] On 1 October 2017, Feldt started on the wing for the Cowboys in the Grand Final against the Melbourne Storm in which they lost convincingly 34-6.[40][41] For the second straight season, Feldt finished the 2017 NRL season as the Cowboys top try scorer with 15 tries in 28 matches.
