NYC side to back up for Panthers

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys NYC squad will head to Penrith with plenty of confidence after their 44-point drubbing of the Melbourne Storm last weekend.

Todd Payten has retained the same side that ran in 10 tries against the Melbourne outfit in the 50-6 win.

The exciting backline of Yamba Bowie, Gideon Mosby and Akeripa Tia Kilifi will be back in action, as will forward Braden Uele who has been dominant up front in the past four rounds, including running 148 metres and making 11 tackle busts in round 4.

Coen Hess will also be looking to continue his high workrate after topping the tackle count against the Storm.

The Cowboys can move to the top of the ladder with a fourth win for the season, while Penrith are sitting just outside the eight with a two and two record.
