Winning team to back up
After seeing his team score an impressive victory against South Sydney on Saturday night, Toyota Cowboys coach Paul Green has made no changes for the round 25 Monday Night Football clash with Cronulla at 1300SMILES Stadium.
Test and Origin front-rower James Tamou will continue his comeback from a neck problem by coming off the interchange bench for a second straight week.
North Queensland remain in seventh position on the ladder and, thanks to their outstanding for and against record this season, will virtually seal a fourth straight finals appearance if they can beat the Sharks.
They are shooting for a ninth consecutive win at home this season with their only defeat coming back in round three against the NZ Warriors.
Kick off on Monday will be at 7pm.
