North Queensland youngster Gideon Gela-Mosby has been stood down by the Cowboys, after he was charged by police for driving without a licence.

Last year, Gela-Mosby was disqualified from obtaining a licence, and was caught driving near the Cowboys’ home ground in May earlier this year.

With the Cowboys now aware of the situation, North Queensland football manager Peter Parr told the Townsville Bulletin Gela-Mosby would be stood down given his upcoming court appearance.

“The North Queensland Cowboys have stood down NRL squad member Gideon Gela-Mosby from playing duties this weekend pending a court appearance in Townsville next week,” Parr told

“The NRL Integrity Unit is aware of the matter and the club will finalise internal investigations after the conclusion of the judicial process.”

Gela-Mosby was scheduled to attend court last Thursday, but was “away on work” and asked the Townsville Magistrates Court to adjourn the matter.

The 20-year-old scored a double last weekend for the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup.

Gela-Mosby has played four first grade games for the Cowboys, with all four appearances coming last season.


  1. Watched him couple years back seems amazing talent and still so young. Was taken away by his speed and finishing. Seems cowboys can’t fit him in the playing team bows a good time to look for a better opportunity. Titans ?? Broncoes?? Sharks ??

  2. Very talented player, would like manly to pick him up, I actually wrote about him a few months back saying e would be a very good and cheap buy

    • Well he has been charged and is awaiting his court appearance so that should make him a strong contender for a Manly contract, but is his crime severe enough to get him over the line?

      Just kidding.

      • Writing just kidding at the end, doesn’t make your comments any less stupid and uninformed

      • 😆 eels, you know that if they’re negotiating for young carty they would take this guy.. but why would he go there ?
        Fergo is keen on your $300 million stadium and maybe this guy will be too ?

        • Yeah cause he’s such a bad boy this bloke isn’t he, driving to training without a licence.. oh no let’s call the fbi…
