Cowboys team list: Trial v Broncos

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Head Coach Todd Payten has named a 22-man squad for Saturday’s trial against the Brisbane Broncos at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Oval.

Veteran forward Josh McGuire will miss the clash as he continues to rehab a hamstring complaint, but is expected to be fit for the NRL season opener against Penrith on March 13.
