No changes for Cowboys


AUSTRALIAN representatives Johnathan Thurston and Matt Scott have been named in the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' team to face St George Illawarra at WIN Jubilee Oval on Sunday.

The co-captains will line up with the Kangaroos against New Zealand on the Gold Coast on Friday night and then join their Cowboys teammates in Sydney on Saturday.

Cowboys coach Neil Henry today selected the same 17 players who played in the 22-20 win against Manly last Saturday night for the round nine meeting with the Dragons.

That squad of 17 also took part in the 30-12 victory against Cronulla at Toyota Stadium a week earlier.

North Queensland will be chasing its fifth consecutive victory when it faces the defending premiers.

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.
