Cowboys out in force for Aus v NZ
The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' Kangaroos quartet have been named in coach Mal Meninga's 19-man squad to play New Zealand at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on Sunday (AEDT).
After missing the Four Nations victory over Scotland, co-captains Johnathan Thurston and Matt Scott rejoin club teammates Justin O'Neill and Michael Morgan in the lineup.
"We know the Kiwis will be a significant challenge for us so it will be great to welcome back some of the players who missed the Scotland game," Meninga said.
"Having said that, it's still important to try out a few combinations and I'm looking forward to seeing what this squad can do against the Kiwis."
