North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green has made one late change to his side for tonight's clash with the Canberra Raiders, with State of Origin star Coen Hess moving from the starting line-up to the interchange.
Young gun Shane Wright will take Hess's place in the second-row, marking his first-ever start at NRL level after making his previous two appearances from the interchange.
Hess's fellow Queensland forward Gavin Cooper will take his place in the starting side after recovering well from the Maroons' victory over the Blues on Wednesday night.
John Asiata will make his first appearance since tearing a pec muscle in Round 7 and will partner Scott Bolton in the front row.
Hess will be joined on the bench by utility Ben Hampton and forwards Shaun Fensom and Corey Jensen.
Centre Justin O'Neill, second-rower Ethan Lowe and prop Francis Molo are the final three players to drop out of the squad named by Green on Tuesday.
Tonight's match starts at 7.30pm.
