Experience returning to the fold

Head coach Paul Green has named his squad for Friday’s Round 25 National Rugby League clash with Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium.

Green will welcome winger Antonio Winterstein (hamstring) and core forward Shaun Fensom (knee) back to the team after both players had short stints on the sideline, while John Asiata is also set to play after overcoming an elbow injury sustained in Saturday’s Round 24 loss to the Sharks.

Back-rower Gavin Cooper (calf) and fullback Lachlan Coote (ankle) have been named in the extended squad and will be given this week to prove their fitness.

The Cowboys are sitting seventh on the NRL ladder with 12 wins from 22 games for 28 points.

The match will be broadcast live on Channel 9, Fox Sports and 4TOFM.
