The Rockhampton Leagues Club Central Queensland Comets have announced their side for match two of the Minniecon & Burke Pre-Season Challenge against the North Queensland Cowboys at Browne Park on Saturday, February 12.
The side will include new recruits Matt Hill, Tui McKenzie, Aoterangi Herangi, Kurt Cawdron, Herewini Rangi and Trent Callaghan who are all attempting to cement a top grade spot with two trials to go.
The Comets White side will play in the curtain raiser against Mackay Souths A grade and their side includes Damien Wilkes who is returning from a long term injury and Cowboys scholarship holder Trent McKinlay.
The Cowboys have made one late change to their line up with David Myles included on the bench for Sema Mataora who is playing in Charters Towers. It is expected Myles will run on at five-eighth and Keiren Kerr will drop back to the bench.
Will be an entertaining battle this one and it is a bit of a lottery as to what the score line will end up but one thing is for sure, it will be an entertaining afternoon of rugby league at Browne Park.
