The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys will be keen to bounce back from their 30-26 NYC defeat by the Broncos when they tackle the Melbourne Storm at Jack Manski Oval on Saturday afternoon.

Coach Todd Payten continues to show faith in the side that is currently sitting third on the NYC ladder with no changes to his round 4 team.  

Hooker Brandon Smith continues his super start to the season with six tries in three matches and will be looking to again be a driving force for the Cowboys forward pack.

Fullback Yamba Bowie has proven he’s a danger man with the ball over the first few rounds of the season, with four tackle busts against the Broncos in his 14 runs for 121 metres.

Melbourne is currently fifth on the ladder with two wins and a loss.
