Green keeping the faith

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green has kept faith in the host of changes he made for the Round 11 clash with the Rabbitohs by naming an unchanged 17 for Friday's encounter with Melbourne at 1300SMILES Stadium.

Michael Morgan will continue his tenure at fullback after an impressive two try-assist performance against South Sydney.

Te Maire Martin also retains his position in the starting side after an encouraging performance partnering Johnathan Thurston in the halves.

Co-captain Matt Scott has been named to start despite suffering an injury scare in the second half on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old limped to the sideline nine minutes into his second stint on the field, but club medical staff decided he would not need scans on his knee and will give him until later in the week to prove his fitness for the Storm clash.

Young outside back Enari Tuala and prop Francis Molo have again both been named on the interchange.

Friday's game kicks off at 7.50pm.
