Sadrugu named in Cowboys squad

2020 Tokyo Olympics Gold medalist Taniela Sadrugu has made the cut into the North Queensland Cowboys squad for their Round 12 NRL clash against the Penrith Panthers on Friday.

The former Suva flanker has been added on the reserve bench by head coach Todd Payten after an impressive performance with the feeder club Mendi Blackhawks last month where he scored his first rugby league try.

Sadrugu and fellow gold medalist Iosefo Masi joined the Cowboys training last year in November.

Meanwhile, co-captain Jason Taumalolo and winger Kyle Feldt have been sidelined due to injury while Coen Hess and Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow replace them.

The match kicks off at 8pm.

Cowboys: Scott Drinkwater, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Valentine Holmes, Peta Hiku, Murray Taulagi, Tom Dearden, Chad Townsend (c), Jordan McLean, Reece Robson, Reuben Cotter, Tom Gilbert, Jeremiah Nanai, Coen Hess.

Reserves: Jake Granville, Heilum Luki, Jamayne Taunoa-Brown, Griffin Neame, Taniela Sadrugu, Ben Hampton, Ben Condon, Connelly Lemuelu, Riley Price, Brendan Elliot, Brendan Frei.
