North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has finalised his line-up for this afternoon’s Round 7 match against an in-form St George Illawarra team at WIN Stadium.

Ryan Lloyd, Sam Murphy and Marshall Hudson drop out of the extended squad, with the team expected to take the field 1-through-17.

The young Cowboys suffered their first loss of the season last weekend against Wests Tigers, but Payne welcomes back a host of regulars this weekend after he stood down players for breaching team rules last-start.

Six players made their NYC debut last weekend, with winger Murray Taulagi and big man Solomon Vasuvulagi retaining their spots out of that group.

The Dragons are currently sitting second on the National Youth Competition ladder.
