Hezron Murgha (hamstring): A minor strain kept the fullback out of the Northern Pride’s Intrust Super Cup match at the weekend. He should be okay for this Saturday’s match in Mareeba.

Ricky Thorby (back): Back soreness led to the front-rower being rested for the Pride on Sunday.

Brent Tate (knee): The State of Origin winger is out for the season after suffering an ACL tear and cartilage damage in State of Origin Game II.  

Cameron King (knee): The hooker is out for the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL in round 10. He has a modified weights and bike program and is running on the Alter G treadmill.

Lachlan Coote (knee): The fullback is continuing skills training with no contact work. There is no date set on when he will return to football with the Cowboys adopting a cautious approach with his return.
