North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has named his 23-man squad for Saturday’s Round 17 National Youth Competition match against the Canberra Raiders.

Payne has made minimal changes from the team that posted a stirring 24-18 win over perennial NYC heavyweights Penrith last weekend.

Prop Emry Pere returns to the side after missing last weekend’s match for disciplinary reasons, while Marshall Hudson retains his wing spot after being a late inclusion for the injured Murray Taulagi.
