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.

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.”

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."

North Queensland Cowboys recruit Carlin Anderson revealed it took just one word from coach Paul Green to make him believe he could be an NRL player.

The 22-year-old fullback is coming off a stellar season with Townsville Blackhawks in the Intrust Super Cup after the Cowboys had announced he would link with the club from 2018 on a two-year deal. 

He has started pre-season training with the belief he can make it in the big time, as opposed to wondering if he belongs.

"The thing that gave me a lot of confidence was when Greeny was asked in a press conference where he saw me as a player and he said 'fullback'," Anderson told NRL.com.

"I never knew if I'd be good enough to play fullback in the NRL.

"I thought he might have said wing, but coming...

Johnathan Thurston returns to Cowboys training on Wednesday morning for testing as he targets his much-anticipated return in 2018.

The 34-year-old North Queensland co-captain underwent shoulder surgery after bravely guiding Queensland to victory in Origin II on June 21 despite playing under duress, in what was the last game he played in 2017.

Cowboys coach Paul Green told NRL.com that Thurston’s rehabilitation had been on track before the club’s post-season break and he had wanted to return early to pre-season training.

“JT had to have some days off through that (rehabilitation) period so he wanted to start a bit earlier,” Green said.

“He’ll have testing to see where he is at and what he can and can’t do, but he was tracking really well...
