Green names side for Titans trial

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Paul Green has named a host of big-name stars for his side’s first trial match of the 2019 season against the Gold Coast Titans at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Representative forwards Matt Scott, Jordan McLean and Jason Taumalolo headline a monster forward pack, which also includes premiership-winning hooker Jake Granville and second-rowers Ethan Lowe and Mitch Dunn.

Young gun Jake Clifford will partner Kiwi Test star Te Maire Martin in the halves, with Michael Morgan rested.
