NYC Coach Anthony Barnes has once again named an extended squad ahead of our Sunday afternoon clash with the North-Queensland Cowboys in the Holden Cup.

The young Roosters couldn't quite match it with the top-of-the-table Panthers on Monday night and will be looking to rectify that with a win this weekend and remain in touch with the top four.

Grant Garvey returns to the side this week after making his NRL debut against the Panthers, with Victor Radley shuffling to the bench. 

Nicholas Cornish returns to the halfback spot in place of Jesse Marschke.

The rest of the side remains unchanged to the side named for Round 22.
