Final Team: Cowboys v Sharks

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys co-captain Matt Scott will miss tonight's clash with Cronulla after reaggravating a neck injury he has battled for the majority of the 2018 season.

Scott will be replaced in the front row by Scott Bolton, who earns his first berth in the starting side since Round 19.

John Asiata also earns a promotion to the starting side, with Cowboys head coach Paul Green naming the 25-year-old at lock to replace the suspended Jason Taumalolo.

Ethan Lowe comes on to the interchange for his first appearance in the top grade since Round 14.

Lowe, who has been in strong form for the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup, is joined on the bench by utility Ben Hampton and forwards Francis Molo and Corey Jensen.

Shaun Fensom and centre Enari Tuala are the final two players to drop out of the 21-man squad named by Green on Tuesday.

Tonight's game kicks off at 7.30pm.
