Former Fiji 7s squad member Taniela Sadrugu has been included in North Queensland’s reserves for Friday’s clash against the Panthers in the NRL Indigenous round.
The 23-year-old could be a late inclusion after being named among the reserves.
Sadrugu and Olympic gold-medalist Iosefo Masi joined the Cowboys in November last year under Train and Replacement contracts.
The former Suva Rugby flanker has been playing for Mendi Blackhawks, a feeder club for the Cowboys.
He scored in his debut match for Mendi Blackhawks in March.
Looking at the changes made to the Cowboys line-up, Jason Taumalolo and Kyle Feldt have been sidelined due to knee injuries.
Feldt will be out for six weeks.
Friday’s match kicks off at 8pm.
