North Queensland Toyota Cowboys forward Ben Hannant will return to action when the team rounds out their regular season against the Gold Coast Titans at 1300SMILES Stadium this Saturday.

Hannant injured his knee in the team’s Round 22 match against the Wests Tigers and has missed the past three matches.

His return is timely given co-captain Matt Scott will miss the match with a broken finger.

Scott Bolton has been named to start, while Hannant will be joined on the interchange bench by veteran hooker Rory Kostjasyn, and young guns Patrick Kaufusi and Coen Hess.
