Cowboys set for finals run

By AARON KELLY

THE North Queensland Cowboys are on the verge of another NRL finals charge and David Myles can't wait.

Myles, 27, will join the Young Guns' clash with the Central Comets at Rockhampton's Browne Park tonight.

The experienced first-grader returns to the Queensland Wizard Cup this weekend after 18th man duties in the Cowboys' nail-biting win over Manly last Sunday.

Just 10 months ago, Myles was a Cowboys' hero after scoring the match-winning try in last year's historic semi-final win over the Broncos in Townsville.

But the arrival of Johnathon Thurston and emergence of players like Ty Williams have limited his time in the NRL this season.

The versatile Myles, who has played 89 first-grade games, is now determined to help the club's youngsters fulfil their potential with the Young Guns, who lead the Queensland Wizard Cup.

"It's something that's been coming for a while ? we've always had the potential,'' he said.

Myles hopes to play a role in the Cowboys' final rounds, with North Queensland already "buzzing'' on the eve of this year's finals series.

"The club, the town and the whole of North Queensland got a taste of it last year and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon again,'' Myles said.

The Comets have lost Dallas Williams and Todd Brandon (both flu) for tonight's match.
