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.
