Cowboys win well without injured star

6:13 am on 12 July 2011

The North Queensland Cowboys registered a notable win in the National Rugby League last night beating in-form Newcastle 22-12 without their injured star, halfback Johnathan Thurston.

The Cowboys had won just seven of 25 previous matches without the Queensland and Australian star, but they've regained 5th spot on the table after ending the Knights' run of three successive wins.
