Head Coach Trent Robinson has named a 19-man Squad for this Thursday night's season opener against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, including sixteen of last year's Grand Final side.

Retired forward Luke O'Donnell is the only player missing from the 2013 Premiership side and new recruit Remi Casty the only omission from the seventeen that overcame the Wigan Warriors to claim the Club's record-breaking third World Club Challenge title ten days ago.

2013 International Wing of the Year, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck returns to the side after missing the World Club Challenge through injury, which sees Shaun Kenny-Dowall shift back to his preferred position of centre and Mitchell Aubusson to the bench in place of Casty.
