There are no late changes to NYC coach Aaron Payne’s team as the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s aim to get back into the winner's circle against the young Gold Coast Titans in Cudgen.
The Round 4 National Youth Competition make-up match kicks off at 2.30pm today, with Payne to field the 17 players he named on Tuesday.
That means Sam Murphy, Jack Althaus and Oscar Carter drop out of the 20-man squad, with 17-year-old forward Logan Bayliss-Brown to make his NYC debut.
Payne’s outside backs will be especially keen to impress following the sad news that boom centre Enari Tuala will miss several matches with a broken jaw.
Junior Kangaroo Tuala hurt himself early in Friday’s match against the junior Kiwis in Canberra.
Tuala’s club teammates and Junior Kiwis Kaleb Fuimaono and Emry Pere played in the same match – won comfortably by Australia – and got through uninjured.
