NYC team eyeing a finals berth

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

Payne will be looking for another strong showing from his team this weekend following their 50-6 win over the Melbourne Storm last start. 

Saturday’s game sees the second-placed Panthers (13 wins, five losses, two draws) host the fourth-placed Cowboys (12 wins, eight losses), with victory guaranteeing the NQ boys a berth in the 2017 finals.
