Team named for NYC derby clash

The inclusion of Australian Schoolboys representative Regan Grieve on an extended interchange bench is the only change to the Toyota Cowboys’ NYC squad for their round 21 meeting with the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday afternoon.

Coach Todd Wilson will decide on the final make-up of his reserves’ list later this week.

Centre Akeripa Tia Kilifi will make his home debut after playing his first three matches for North Queensland away from 1300SMILES Stadium.

Coming off a 26-point win against Canterbury on Saturday, the Cowboys’ under-20s will enter round 21 in 13th place on the ladder, two positions ahead of the Titans, seven points out of the top eight.
