Matt Scott visits Heatley Primary School - Townsville Bulletin

HE HAS not played football since March but North Queensland Cowboys co-captain Matt Scott is still treated like a rock star by Townsville students.

Scott was swamped as he visited Heatley Primary School as part of the Cowboys’ adopt-a-school program yesterday to referee a game of touch football before he was hit with all the hard questions by young Prep students.

“It’s good to get (a visit in) so soon back into training and before the year finishes,” he said.

“They like to ask who my best friend is, if I know Johnathan Thurston. They’re always very random and a lot of fun.”

WHEN the Cowboys made the grand final this year there was a rush for flights to Sydney.

Indigenous children from remote communities will benefit after Townsville Airport’s operators donated a portion of those profits to NRL Cowboys House.

Ex-Cowboy Matt Bowen received a cheque for $10,100 on behalf of the Cowboys Community Foundation from Queensland Airports Limited chief executive officer Chris Mills and Townsville Airport chief operating officer Kevin Gill.

Cowboys chief executive officer Greg Tonner said Cowboys House was a home away from home for boys from remote communities.

Cowboy McLean to call Cairns home base in Intrust Super Cup competition - The Cairns Post

A SWAG of hometown heroes will join Todd Carney in teal next season with the North Queensland Cowboys set to allocate several Far North stars to the Northern Pride in 2018.

While the Cowboys have yet to finalise their player allocations for the Mackay Cutters, Townsville Blackhawks and Pride next year, it is understood some top level talent will call Barlow Park home when not playing in the NRL.

In a significant coup for the club, the Cowboys’ mammoth Melbourne Storm recruit Jordan McLean will line up for the Pride when his services aren’t required by the Cowboys.

McLean, who has family living on the Tablelands, will be joined by Edmonton Storm junior Enari Tuala, Javid Bowen, Ben Hampton, Jake Clifford and fan favourite Gideon Gela-Mosby with further players to be announced in the coming days.

Gela-Mosby is expected to start at fullback for the Pride next year, where he showed...

Tourism operators want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in North Queensland - Townsville Bulletin

PRINCE Harry has finally announced his engagement to Meghan Markle with a wedding planned for next year.

Now the big question is: Where will they honeymoon?

If North Queensland tourism operators have their way, it would be right here.

The newly engaged couple have gushed about their love of travel after a romantic getaway to Botswana.

It’s that sense of adventure and search for privacy that could pit North Queensland as a real contender for a post-wedding break, according to Townsville Enterprise Tourism and Events director Bridget Woods.

“We definitely think an off-the-grid, digital-detox holiday would be very appealing to the royal couple and we would love to help them with an itinerary,” she said.

“We’ve got Orpheus Island, the coral caves at...

Thurston back at Cowboys training - NRL.COM

Johnathan Thurston has returned to training for the 2018 pre-season, and the North Queensland Cowboys co-captain is wasting no time getting back into it after so much time out of the game. 

It comes after a season-ending shoulder injury the playmaker sustained in State of Origin II, which forced him to miss the Cowboys' charge to the grand final where they were beaten by the Melbourne Storm. 

"It's nice to be back, that's for sure, I had a busy off-season so it's good to be back around the boys and I've got four weeks of hard work now before Christmas," Thurston said. 

"It's been a busy break, obviously with the shoulder as well I was doing a lot of travelling as well so it's nice now that the shoulder is just about fully healed, I've got full range in it and it's just about getting strength back into it and I can do that… over the next four weeks."
