Round 6 Team News: Final 17 confirmed to tackle Cowboys

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have been forced to make some changes for Sunday's match against the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville (4pm), after the withdrawal of captain Josh Jackson with injury.

Matt Doorey have been excluded from the final 17 an hour before kick off. They join Brandon Wakeham, Dean Britt & Joe Stimson who were omitted yesterday afternoon. Development player Aaron Schoupp has been named at '18th man' as injury cover.

Head Coach Trent Barrett has also opted to start Renouf Atoni, with Dylan Napa dropping to the bench.

Jackson's withdrawal means that Luke Thompson will take the number 13 jersey, with Chris Smith coming on to the bench for what would be his first NRL match of the season.
