Cowboys team list: Round 6 v Bulldogs

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys co-captain Jason Taumalolo has again been named to make his return from a fractured hand after a false start in Round 5.

Taumalolo was originally slated for a comeback against the Wests Tigers last weekend, but was unable to take the field after experiencing soreness following training.

The 27-year-old has been named at lock, with Coen Hess to start in the front row after an impressive performance as a middle forward against the Tigers.

Justin O’Neill returns to replace the injured Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow at centre. Tabuai-Fidow is set to miss 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury.

Reuben Cotter is also facing a 4-6 week stint on the sidelines with a foot injury.

Second-rower Mitch Dunn is a chance to return from a foot injury after being named in the reserves.

Hess’ promotion sees Francis Molo revert to the bench alongside Jake Granville, Lachlan Burr and Corey Jensen.

Sunday’s game kicks off at 4.05pm.
