Bundy's Cowboys all chosen for NRL trial match

BUNDABERG'S North Queensland Cowboys will have a chance to impress coach Paul Green this weekend in Mackay.

Patrick Kaufusi, Coen Hess and Kyle Laybutt have all been selected to play against the Roosters in the Cowboys' first trial of the year on Saturday night.

It is the first time all three have been selected for the same Cowboys squad during their time at the club.

It gives Hess and Kaufusi a chance to be promoted into the starting line-up for the new season after the retirement of Ben Hannant.

Laybutt was selected in the absence of Jonathon Thurston, who is playing at the NRL All Stars.

The Cowboys will play the Roosters at 7pm after the Cowboys U20s play Mackay.

Another Bundy product, Cody Maughan, will play in that match.
