Fowler is hopeful his appearance and goal for North Queensland in Wednesday's clash with Wolves will demonstrate how committed he is to the Fury cause this season.
On the back of reports suggesting his injuries would prevent him playing, along with a rapidly quashed story he was considering a move to Tranmere, Fowler came on in the 54th minute and converted a spot-kick 13 minutes later to open his Fury account.
And the 34-year-old insists his fitness can only get better, saying: "Obviously (there's) been various reports saying I won't play again this season, so I think that will shut you people up.
"I'm experienced enough to know you go through your career and people do get injuries. I'm not the first, I won't be the last. I'm just glad to be back playing (but) it's not a relief, I always knew I'd come back."
