North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has named his 23-man squad for Friday’s Round 25 National Youth Competition match against Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium.

Payne will be looking for his team to rebound after they were well beaten by runaway competition leaders Cronulla last start.

Strike centre Enari Tuala, 18, is poised to return to the team after making his NRL debut against the Sharks last weekend, with fellow centre Kurt Wiltshire ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Prop Emry Pere returns to the starting side after impressing in his return from injury last weekend, where he punched out good minutes from the interchange bench.
