North Queensland Toyota Cowboys hooker Jake Granville has been a late inclusion in Paul Green’s team to take on the Canterbury Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground tonight.

Granville has missed two games with a broken hand and will return to action tonight, taking his place on the interchange bench alongside Coen Hess, Scott Bolton and Patrick Kaufusi.

Originally named on the bench, Rory Kostjasyn will start at hooker.

The winner of tonight’s clash will all-but sew up fourth position on the NRL ladder, thereby snaring a vital double chance in the finals series.

Tonight’s game kicks off at 7.50pm.
