North Queensland Toyota Cowboys NYC coach Todd Payten has stuck with the same run-on 13 that tore the Roosters apart in round one, to take on the Knights at 1300SMILES Stadium tonight.

Exciting young fullback Yamba Bowie will be looking to continue his blistering start to the season, while Brandon Smith will be out to control the ruck for his big boys who destroyed the Roosters' defensive line last weekend.

The Cowboys under-20s can continue their impressive start to the season if they can knock over last year’s minor premiers and highly-fancied Newcastle outfit.

Kick off is at 5.45pm.
