North Queensland Cowboys vs New Zealand Warriors start time, results, news for Round 12, Indigenous Round

The 10th place Cowboys will clash with ninth place Warriors, with the winner from tonight’s match to move into the top eight.

Both clubs are coming off wins last weekend, but expect all eyes tonight to be on Warriors teen sensation Reece Walsh, who appears to have locked down New Zealand’s fullback position.

Warriors coach Nathan Brown switched star fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to the wing last weekend to give Walsh the opportunity to start in the No.1 jersey, which looks to be the case this week with the teen retaining the position.

The livewire fullback scored a try during the Warriors’ 30-26 win over the Tigers last week. He also had three try assists and four line break assists.

Rugby league legend Andrew Johns was asked who Walsh reminded him of most, in which he replied: “Kalyn (Ponga),” a smaller version of Kalyn, or Shaun Johnson,” Johns told Wide World of Sports’ Freddy and The Eighth.

“He’s got dynamite in his feet. You know what else? He has something about him, a bit of swagger… he’s got the superstar qualities, you can see it.

“He has that little bit of magic.”
