NYC centre Tuala set to return

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has named his 23-man squad for Saturday’s Round 19 National Youth Competition match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Sydney.

Looking to return to the winner’s circle after a last-start loss to the Raiders, the Cowboys welcome back strike centre Enari Tuala from a lengthy injury layoff, the recently-signed NRL squad recruit breaking his jaw while playing for the Junior Kangaroos two months ago.

Regular prop Emry Pere is out with a knee injury, with Connor Luhan promoted to the starting side.
