North Queensland Cowboys co-captains Johnathan Thurston and Matt Scott will lead a strong team to take on the Wests Tigers in next weekend’s trial match at Barlow Park in Cairns.

Cowboys coach Paul Green has named a 22-man squad for the Cairns trial and with unlimited interchanges, he will give all players named a decent hit-out.

“It’s good to have them back,” Green said of his inspirational leaders.

“Just having them around at training has been really good. It’s really helped the young guys but it’s also added that level of experience.

“They’ll be glad to get out there on the paddock again.”

Cowboys Squad

Ben Hampton, Gideon Gela-Mosby, Javid Bowen, Shaun Hudson, Enari Tuala, Te Maire Martin, Johnathan Thurston, Scott Bolton, Jake Granville, Matt Scott, Ethan Lowe, Coen Hess, John Asiata, Kyle Laybutt, Jake Clifford, Mitch Dunn, Shane Wright, Corey Jensen, Sam Hoare, Emry Pere, Francis Molo, Carlin Anderson


  1. Are Cowboys gonna turn Dunn into an full time back rower or back up half? Also Tuala, Pere and Clifford have big futures, I suspect they’ll be running around this year come Origin time and regular FG next year.
