Robert Lui will play his first game for North Queensland since round one last year when he runs out for Saturday's NRL trial clash against Brisbane in Mount Isa.

Lui was sacked by the Wests Tigers after being charged with assaulting his partner following a mad Monday drinking session in 2011.

He was then stood down by former ARL Commission chief David Gallop after pleading guilty to the offence in court.

He had hoped to make a return to action midway through last season after the couple underwent counselling in Townsville, only for Gallop to extend the ban until the end of the year.

Lui will line up at halfback for the game in his home town, and will be joined by another long-term absentee Tariq Sims.

The destructive back-rower was on the brink of a call-up to the NSW side when he broke his leg against Penrith last May.

Sims will be joined in the side by new signings Scott Moore, Clint Greenshields and Curtis Rona.
