Cowboys team list: Round 7 v Titans

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Head Coach Todd Payten has made one change to his 17 for Saturday’s XXXX Derby clash with the Gold Coast Titans at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

Griffin Neame returns from concussion on the interchange in place of Connelly Lemuelu. Neame missed the Raiders victory after failing a HIA during the Round 5 fixture with the Warriors in Redcliffe.

Heilum Luki holds his spot in the starting side after an impressive 80-minute performance in Canberra.

Scott Drinkwater remains at fullback with Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow named in the reserves as he attempts to make his return from a knee injury.

Jamayne Taunoa-Brown has been named in the reserves after missing the Canberra game through a head knock.

The Cowboys will wear specially designed defence jerseys for the NRL’s Anzac Round this weekend. Defence and RSL Service Members will have access to a two for one ticket offer, which can be purchased from Ticketmaster outlets.

Gates open at 3pm with the Gold Stars to face Burleigh at 3.05pm and a 1RAR Band performance and Anzac Tribute Ceremony to precede the NRL fixture which kicks off at 5.30pm.
