The Central Queensland Comets have named all their new signings in their squad to take on the Manly Sea-Eagles on Saturday February 7 at Browne Park, Rockhampton.

The new signings that will be on show include former Canberra Raider lower grade player David Nixon, 2003 Bartercard Cup player of the year Toby Wallace, former St George-Illawarra Premier League player Shannon Fish and former Comets Wade and Clint Rothery who are returning home.

Comets coach Neale Crow will use his full squad which gives him a chance to have a look at all his players leading into the 2004 Queensland Cup season.

The Queensland Cup's highest all time try scorer Heath Egglestone will play after a short lived retirement and it's expected all players will be fit for the clash although Rex Gamble and Wayne Phillis are under injury clouds.

The game will be played in four 20 minute quarters and is expected to kick off at 7.30 pm.

This will be the first of three trials for the Comets with their second to be played verse the North Queensland Cowboys at Browne Park on Saturday February 14 and the third to be played verse the St George-Illawarra Dragons at Browne Park on Saturday February 21.
