Team for Grand Final replay

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green has named an unchanged team for Friday’s grand final replay against the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.

The Cowboys are coming off a comprehensive 40-0 win over the Roosters in round 3 and have enjoyed a longer-than-usual preparation coming off a Thursday game into a Friday clash with Brisbane.

Green has also revealed that NRL squad member Sam Hoare’s 2016 playing season is over after the prop sustained a serious knee injury playing for the Townsville Blackhawks in the Intrust Super Cup last weekend, and underwent surgery on Monday.

Hoare had been named 18th man for the Roosters match.
