NYC Cowboys named to play Eels

Toyota Cowboys NYC coach Todd Wilson has made one change to his team for the round eight clash with Parramatta at 1300SMILES Stadium on Saturday night.

Front-rower Michael Barclay has been recalled to sit on the interchange bench as the replacement for Coen Hess, who will return to the Townsville Stingers for the semi-finals of the Mal Meninga Cup under-18 competition this weekend.

North Queensland’s starting 13 remains unchanged following the 30-16 victory over Manly in Gosford on Friday night.

The win lifted the Cowboys to six points, in a six-way share of eighth place, while the Eels thrashed Wests Tigers 58-20 to jump to second on the ladder on 10 points.
