Team for NQ anniversary match
The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys will be chasing their 200th club victory in this Friday night's blockbuster Queensland derby against the Brisbane Broncos at 1300SMILES Stadium.
As part of the club's 20th anniversary celebrations, the Cowboys will mark their biggest game of the season by playing their anniversary match in the special Heritage strip, featuring the names of the Cowboys who have represented the north over two decades.
Cowboys coach Paul Green's lineup for the round ten match includes just one change to the team that defeated the Bulldogs 23-16 last Saturday night – Sam Hoare comes on to the bench, back from a calf injury, to replace Kelepi Tanginoa.
Tickets to Friday night's blockbuster are selling fast, and are available from Ticketek outlets (1300SMILES Stadium, Stockland Townsville, Cowboys Leagues Club, Townsville Civic Theatre and Riverway Arts Centre), 132 849 or ticketek.com.au.
Members and fans are encouraged to plan their journey to and from 1300SMILES Stadium ahead of time – visit cowboys.com.au/transport for more information.
The game will be televised live in Qld on Channel 9/WIN.
