TAMOU BEAT­ING IN­JURY

- PETER BADEL

anti-grav­ity tread­mill de­vel­oped by space agency NASA to ex­pe­dite Mor­gan’s re­turn.

“Morgo is go­ing along well, he’s a day-to-day propo­si­tion,” Green said. “I think he’s done a bit of run­ning on the Al­ter-G tread­mill, so we’ll see how he goes. We won’t be tak­ing any un­nec­es­sary risks with him.”

North Queens­land are sweat­ing on Mor­gan’s re­turn.

While his re­place­ment, Ray Thompson, was solid in last round’s 14-6 loss to the Storm, he lacks the speed and classy touches that have made Mor­gan a vi­tal foil for cham­pion Johnathan Thurston.

“We fol­lowed due process, we got scans and they came up clear, there’s no new dam­age and his power and strength is nor­mal and sym­met­ri­cal,” Green said. “He prob­a­bly has to change his run­ning style and how he goes into col­li­sions.

“Hope­fully, we can get him to make more of an im­pact on them, not him.”

Green backed Thompson to ease the play­mak­ing bur­den on Thurston against the Ti­tans.

“Ray should feel a bit more com­fort­able in the team this week,” he said.

The Cowboys have lost three of their past four games.
