North Queensland Cowboys: 2021 round 1 predicted team

With Jake Clifford's future elsewhere in 2022, Scott Drinkwater and Michael Morgan are likely the preferred starting halves combination. Tom Gilbert was arguably the club's best forward towards the end of 2020 and deserves a starting spot although Coen Hess could return to the run-on team. Reuben Cotter could pass Jake Granville as the preferred hooker back-up.

1. Valentine Holmes
2. Kyle Feldt
3. Esan Marsters
4. Justin O'Neil
5. Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow
6. Scott Drinkwater
7. Michael Morgan (c)
8. Josh McGuire
9. Reece Robson
10. Jordan McLean
11. Tom Gilbert
12. Mitchell Dunn
13. Jason Taumalolo (c)

14. Jake Granville
15. Lachlan Burr
16. Francis Molo
17. Coen Hess

Others: Jake Clifford, Ben Conden, Reuben Cotter, Wiremu Grieg, Ben Hampton, Peter Hola, Corey Jensen, Connelly Lemuelu, Emry Pere, Tukimihia Simpkins, Murray Taulagi, Shane Wright

I guess that rules out Cowboys for signing Reynolds. Townsend definite upgrade for them. Not going to make them contenders though.

Probably the best they could have done given their current situation. Entering the race for Reynolds would have cost them a packet and they would have lost that race as well. Hard to compete for Reynolds signature with Sydney clubs that have similar cash available.

Townsend is ok but 650 is overs. Now they got Dearden too so they got two organising halves. And neither are all that convincing
