Regan Grieve is set to become the latest member of the Townsville Stingers’ under-18 national championship team to make his NYC debut for the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys.

The 18-year-old, who was co-captain of the Stingers, has been included on a six-man interchange bench by coach Todd Wilson for Saturday night’s round 12 under-20s match against the Melbourne Storm at 1300SMILES Stadium.

A junior with the Mackay Magpies before making the move to Townsville where he linked with Centrals, Grieve can play in the back-row or as a centre.

If he does play this weekend, he will join fellow Stingers teammates Cooper Bambling and Coen Hess in making the step up to the under-20s competition.

The Cowboys have lost hooker Josh Chudleigh to a two-game suspension after he lodged an early guilty plea on a grade two dangerous throw charge from Sunday’s victory against Canberra.

However, they have regained skipper Jack Kelleher from a two-game ban.

Dan Clarke will replace Chudleigh at hooker and Kelleher has been named in the front-row with Michael Barclay dropping back to the bench.

Delayne Ashby has been recalled after one week out and will provide the back-up support to Clarke and the halves pairing of Bambling and five-eighth Alex Grant.

Melbourne are in ninth place place on the NYC ladder, while the Cowboys are 13th, four points outside the top eight.
