Winger Antonio Winterstein has lost his race against time to prove his fitness ahead of North Queensland's NRL preliminary final against Cronulla on Friday night.

Boom teenager Kalyn Ponga remains on standby for veteran centre Kane Linnett when the Cowboys flew out for Sydney on Wednesday.

Cowboys assistant Todd Payten ran a line through Winterstein's name as a rowdy North Queensland contingent bid farewell to their beloved NRL club at Townsville airport.
