NYC Coach Anthony Barnes has named his 23-man squad to face the Newcastle Knights in the Holden Cup on Friday afternoon.

There are only a couple of changes to the side that last took to the field, with a shuffle in the backline and a returning face on the extended bench.

Nick O'Meley will get his first run at fullback, which will see Kiah Cooper move back into the centres alongside Adam Pompey. 

After spending most of the season on the sidelines, Sitili Tupouniua has been named on the extended bench and will train hard for a spot in the line-up ahead of kick off.
