South African-born Halvor Harris will return to the Toyota Cowboys NYC lineup for the round two meeting with the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

The prop forward, who was 18th man for the season-opening victory against Canberra on Saturday, replaces Queensland Junior Origin forward Patrick Kaufusi, who faces surgery this week for a torn pectoral muscle.

He’ll come straight into the starting pack in the only change to coach Todd Wilson’s team as they prepare to face a Broncos lineup coming off a 30-24 win against Canterbury on Friday night.
