Back-rower Ethan Lowe has been brought into the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ squad of 17 for the elimination final against Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium on Friday night.

Lowe has been named on the interchange bench by coach Paul Green, with Glenn Hall promoted to the starting pack to replace Tariq Sims who has a five-match suspension to serve after lodging an early guilty plea to a grade three shoulder charge offence.

It will be Lowe’s first NRL appearance since round 23 and his 10th overall in the 2014 season.

Friday night’s winner will remain alive in the 2014 premiership and face South Sydney in a preliminary final at ANZ Stadium on Friday week.
