Gela-Mosby readying for NRL debut

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys flyer Gideon Gela-Mosby is set to make his National Rugby League debut after being named on the wing for Saturday’s Round 4 match against the Titans on the Gold Coast.

The 20-year-old Torres Strait Island product comes into the 17-man team in place of the injured Justin O’Neill (hamstring).

Javid Bowen – who last week played on the wing in place of Antonio Winterstein – will move into O’Neill’s centre position as Gela-Mosby comes on to the wing.

Interchange forwards Shaun Fensom and Sam Hoare retain their spots in the 17, while back rower Coen Hess returns to the starting pack as Jason Taumalolo serves the second week of his suspension.

Forwards Corey Jensen, Ben Spina and Braden Uele are joined on the reserves list by 18-year-old centre Cairns junior Enari Tuala.
