NYC Coach Anthony Barnes has named his 23-man squad ahead of a must win game against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the Holden Cup on Sunday night. 

It was a disappointing performance from the young Roosters against the Sharks last weekend, especially for a side looking from the outside in on a spot in the final eight come September. 

Adam Pompey will make his return from injury, which will see Jarred Anderson shuffle to the second row to make room for the young-gun. 

The rest of the squad remains similar to the side that was named ahead of Round 17.
