Aaron Payne has made one injury-forced change to his team ahead of today's Round 19 National Youth Competition match between the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys and the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Redfern Oval.

Interchange prop Solomon Vasuvulagi is out with a shoulder injury, joining fellow big bopper Emry Pere (knee) on the sidelines, the latter ruled out earlier in the week.

Connor Luhan and Jayden Stephens will start in the middle for coach Aaron Payne, while Jack Lote comes in for Vasuvulagi, and will start from the bench.

Payne welcomes strike centre Enari Tuala back into the fold, with the young back having missed two months of football with a broken jaw.

Today’s game kicks off at 1pm.

NYC COWBOYS: 1. Kalyn Ponga, 2. Michael Carroll, 3. Enari Tuala, 4. Kurt Wiltshire, 5. Nathan Traill, 6. Mitch Dunn (c), 7. Jake Clifford, 8. Jayden Stephens, 9. Calum Gahan, 10. Connor Luhan, 11.
