North Queensland Cowboys head coach Paul Green has named his 21 man squad with a shock selection ahead of our Preliminary Final clash on Saturday night.

Matt Scott has been named in the 21 man squad as a reserve and will train with the squad ahead of kick off in a bid to make his long awaited return from an ACL injury. 

The rest of the side looks unchanged to the side that defeated the Eels in last week's Elimination Final.

Coen Hess has been named despite hobbling from the field last Saturday night.
