Gavin Cooper

Cowboys Greats rub shoulders with locals

This exciting collaboration between OTML and the Cowboys demonstrates the company's dedication to strengthening its ties with the local communities.

Cooper and Morgan, both esteemed figures in the rugby league world, played pivotal roles in the Cowboys' historic grand final victory during the 2015 Australian National Rugby League Premiership. They have also represented Queensland in numerous State of Origin clashes and donned the green and gold jersey for Australia in various representative squads, including the Prime Ministers XIII and Kangaroos.

Gavin Cooper to make Queensland Maroons debut in game three, Nate Myles returns

Cooper, who comes into the side for the injured Josh Papalii, was one of two changes to the Maroons team that won game two at Lang Park.

Forward Nate Myles also returns to the Origin arena after missing game two with a knee injury.

Cooper unlucky again: Qld selectors

Queensland selector Allan Smith admits Cooper will remain in the queue along with fellow Cowboys back-rower Ethan Lowe when they finalise June 22's Origin II team on Monday.

Smith said only injuries would pave the way for Cooper's maiden Origin due to the selectors' loyalty to incumbent bench forward Guerra.

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," Smith told AAP when asked about Queensland's Origin II side.

"Our biggest issue is how everyone pulls up."
