The Toyota Cowboys NYC squad will field another different halves combination in their round 25 match against Cronulla at Brothers Leagues Club in Townsville on Saturday night.

Delayne Ashby returns to the No.6 jersey in place of Ty Carucci and will share the playmaking duties with Yamba Bowie, who had his first 80-minute match at halfback in the loss to South Sydney on Saturday night.

The remainder of North Queensland’s starting team is unchanged.

On the interchange bench, Regan Grieve is in line to make his return from an ankle injury, while Jordan Kenworthy is set to retain his position after making his under-20s debut against the Rabbitohs.

After back-to-back losses away from home, the Cowboys can end the year no higher than their current 12th position.

Kick off on Saturday will be at 6pm and will follow a TDRL A-grade match between Brothers and University.
