James Tamou is back in the North Queensland Cowboys starting lineup after serving a two-match suspension for drink driving and will be looking to make up for his mistake and win over the fans and his teammates with a good performance. And a good performance is exactly what Cowboys need if they have any finals aspirations with a tricky tie against The Green Machine looming in Round 17. Cowboys managed to break a losing streak with a 16-22 victory over St George/Illawarra Dragons in Round 14 and after a bye in Round 15 need to carry that momentum forward over the next few games.
Paul Gallen suffered a foot injury in State of Origin Game 2 and will be a big miss for Cronulla Sharks, but fullback Michael Gordon could return to the side along with Andrew Fifita and Luke Lewis. Sharks are the form side heading into this NRL Round 16 clash with five wins from their last six matches, the last of which was a 32-14 victory over bottom of the table Parramatta Eels in Round 14.
