Round 1, 2003: Four Cowboys make club debuts

Ahead of Saturday afternoon's clash against the Canberra Raiders at 1300SMILES Stadium, we thought we'd look back at a previous classic match-up between the two sides.

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys head coach Graham Murray has named four of his 2003 recruits for the season opener against the Canberra Raiders at Dairy Farmers Stadium on Saturday night.

Former New Zealand Warriors duo David Myles and Kevin Campion have both been named in the starting side, with the former being named as captain in his Cowboys debut.

Current New Zealand Kiwis international Paul Rauhihi has been named in the front row, while Paul McNicholas will start in the no. 12 jersey.
