The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys under-20s team will sharpen their skills with an unchanged team in today’s final round of regular-season National Youth Competition action against the Gold Coast Titans at 1300SMILES Stadium.
Having named an extended bench on Tuesday, coach Aaron Payne will go with his first 17 for today's match.
Kaleb Fuimaono and Michael Carroll will drop out of the group, with the four-man interchange bench to consist of Nathan Traill, Corey Horsburgh, Nick Brown and Nick Lui Toso.
The young Cowboys have all but sewn up second place on the NYC ladder, with a win tonight likely to set up a major semi-final clash with the St George Illawarra Dragons.
