North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Under-20s coach Aaron Payne has finalised his 23-man team for tonight’s Round 26 National Youth Competition match against the Brisbane Broncos at 1300SMILES Stadium.
Payne has made no changes from the team named on Tuesday, with Sam Murphy, Sean Mullany and Jack Glossop dropping out of the extended squad.
Five-eighth Mitch Dunn will once again captain the team, who are aiming for back-to-back wins to round out the home-and-away season heading into the finals series.
The young Cowboys can finish as high as second with a win tonight, depending on other results, while a loss puts them in danger of missing out on a double chance in the finals series.
The game kicks off at 5.30pm.
NYC COWBOYS: 1. Nathan Traill, 2. Michael Carroll, 3. Enari Tuala, 4. Cody Maughan, 5. Murray Taulagi, 6. Mitch Dunn (c), 7. Jake Clifford, 8. Connor Luhan, 9. Calum Gahan, 10. Emry Pere, 11.
