Cowboy co-captain Matt Scott is being considered for a return to the field for the Grand Final.

He’s been recovering from a knee injury, which sidelined him in week two.

North Queensland fans have again turned out in huge numbers to welcome their team home following their win over the Sydney Roosters.

With the finals less than a week away, coach Paul Green is being prompted by coaches and players alike to reinstate co-captain Matt Scott for the final match at ANZ Stadium this weekend.

It’ll be the Cowboys second grand final in three years.

Michael Morgan, Cowboys halfback: “It brings back memories as well from a couple of years ago, so we know how much it can mean to this community and the North in general, so yeah, it’s great to be a part of.”

Queensland coach Kevin Walters, along with Cowboys stars Jason Taumalolo and Michael Morgan are calling for Scott to be offered a position on the field.

There’s speculation that if he was to return to the side, Scott would replace forward Corey Jensen, who debuted for the Cowboys in round seven.
