Origin wait & see for Top End clash

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green has named all three of the club's State of Origin representatives in his starting side for Saturday's clash with the Parramatta Eels at TIO Stadium in Darwin.

Queensland stars Michael Morgan, Gavin Cooper and Coes Hess will travel to Darwin from Melbourne on Thursday afternoon and will be assessed by Cowboys staff upon arrival.

After missing last week's win over Manly through Origin commitments, Morgan returns to the side at fullback, replacing Lachlan Coote who drops to the extended bench.

Cooper and Hess resume their second-row spots with Shaun Fensom and Ethan Lowe reverting to the interchange.

Prop Sam Hoare retains his spot in the starting side after an encouraging season debut against Manly and will partner Matt Scott, who returns in the front-row from a one-week suspension, with Scott Bolton still out with a rib cartilage injury.

Kane Linnett, who missed the first half of the season with a torn pec, has again been named on the interchange after a brilliant return from injury in Round 13.

Last week's debutante Mitchell Dunn has been named on the extended bench alongside Coote, utility Ben Hampton, outside back Javid Bowen and forward Francis Molo.

Saturday's game kicks off at 7pm local time (7.30pm AEST).
