Life at Cowboys HQ is slowly returning to normal after a turbulent week that saw Townsville and North Queensland communities inundated by flooding.

While the threat of more rain persists, Cowboys HQ has re-opened for administration and football staff to continue planning for the remainder of the pre-season and for season kick-off in just over five weeks.

Players have resumed training on a schedule modified to the conditions, with a number of squad members and their families still displaced from their homes but safe, well and comfortable.

Cowboys Chief Operating Officer (Acting) Micheal Luck said the club was working hard to support all players and staff in getting life 'back to normal' as soon as possible.

"Our priority this week has been the safety of everyone in the immediate Cowboys family," Luck said.

"Once we were confident of this, our focus turned to how we could help others, and getting our pre-season back on track, with just over two weeks until our first trial game.

"The club is in talks with disaster relief management representatives to determine how best we can help our community with a coordinated approach.

"Our thoughts are with all members, fans and the wider community affected by this disaster."
