Five North Queensland Cowboys players have been charged after allegedly egging cars in Townsville.

The players were in a car stopped by police for a random breath test before midnight on Wednesday when an unknown person accused them of throwing eggs.

It's claimed that earlier in the evening the men -aged 18, 21, 22, 23 and 25 - threw eggs and damaged five vehicles, before driving off.

"It will further be alleged a number of eggs and egg cartons were located in the vehicle," Queensland Police said in a statement on Thursday.

The players have been charged with two counts each of wilful damage and are due to appear in court on October 11.
