The Sydney Roosters U/20s head in to Saturday's clash with the Cowboys fired up and ready to prove themselves, after a shock loss to Manly last Monday night.

After defeating the previously unbeaten Panthers a game earlier the young Tricolours looked like they were going to cruise to victory over Manly, until two late tries sealed the game for Manly.

Motivation shouldn't be a problem for a Cowboys side who will be pumped to impress in front of their home crowd, after a disappointing start to the season.

A gritty twenty all draw at their last start will have lifted the home sides confidence heading in to this clash.

Travel will again be an issue for the young Roosters as they have just 24 hours to acclimatise to Townsville's famously tricky conditions but if they can overcome that, sheer desire to get another win on the board should get them across the line.

The visitors again travel without fierce prop Brandon Tago who remains sidelined through injury.
