North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has named his 23-man squad for Saturday’s Round 24 NYC match against ladder leaders the Cronulla Sharks.

Payne will be looking for another strong showing from his team this weekend following their 40-16 win over the Penrith Panthers last start.

Prop Emry Pere (knee injury) returns to the team, as does Nathan Traill, who comes into the fullback spot for Kalyn Ponga (NRL call-up).

Saturday’s game sees the fourth-placed Cowboys (13 wins, eight losses) host the first-placed Sharks (18 wins, two losses, one draw).
