Hall to return for Cowboys
SECOND-ROWER Glenn Hall is expected to return from injury for the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys for their NRL round 10 match against Parramatta at Dairy Farmers Stadium on Saturday night.
A badly corked thigh sustained in the win against Manly prevented Hall from playing in the 22-8 loss to St George Illawarra at WIN Jubilee Oval in Sydney on Sunday.
Coach Neil Henry today named the 30-year-old in his starting pack to face the Eels, with Tariq Sims returning to the interchange bench.
Last year's NYC player of the year made his first run-on start for the Cowboys against the Dragons.
The 18-man squad for the Eels clash also includes James Segeyaro who came in as Hall's replacement after the second-rower was ruled out on Sunday.
The Cowboys will be chasing their fifth straight home victory in their last game before their first bye week of the season.
North Queensland Toyota Cowboys: 1 Matthew Bowen, 2 Ashley Graham, 3 Antonio Winterstein, 4 Willie Tonga, 5 Kalifa Faifai Loa, 6 Ray Thompson, 7 Johnathan Thurston, 8 Matthew Scott, 9 Aaron Payne, 10 James Tamou, 11 Gavin Cooper, 12 Glenn Hall, 13 Dallas Johnson
Interchange: 14 Scott Bolton, 15 Leeson Ah Mau, 16 Tariq Sims, 17 Ashton Sims, 18 James Segeyaro
