Linnett ruled out for Cowboys

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 23/09/2016 Steve Zemek

North Queensland centre Kane Linnett has been ruled out of Friday night's NRL grand-final qualifier against Cronulla.

Linnett has failed to recover from a hamstring injury and will be replaced in their preliminary final by teen sensation Kalyn Ponga.

After debuting in last week's extra-time win over Brisbane, Ponga will play on the wing with Javid Bowen moving into the centres.

The Sharks have no injury worries and are as per program.
