Jason Taumalolo has been named captain of an exciting North Queensland Toyota Cowboys squad for this weekend’s NRL Nines in Perth.
Wearing his trademark No.13 jersey, Taumalolo will lead a Cowboys squad containing fellow internationals Josh McGuire and Esan Marsters as well as Australian Nines star Kyle Feldt.
Cowboys head coach Paul Green has opted to deploy a host of young outside backs including Scott Drinkwater, Connelly Lemuelu, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Michael Bell, Murray Taulagi and Dan Russell.
For Marsters, Lemuelu, Tabuai-Fidow, Bell and hooker Reece Robson the Nines will be their first foray in Cowboys colours.
The Cowboys kick off their campaign with a clash against arch-rivals Brisbane at 7.05pm (WA) on Friday night before taking on Manly at 1.45pm (WA) on Saturday afternoon.
