sportsbet.com.au Team Announcement - Round 5 v Bulldogs

Head Coach Trent Robinson has named his Team for this Friday night's Men of League Heritage Round clash with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Allianz Stadium.

Robinson has made two changes to the side that last Friday went down narrowly to the Sea Eagles, including a forced change with front-rower Jared Waerea-Hargreaves this afternoon accepting a Grade 2 Reckless Tackle charge from the NRL Match Review Committee.

The Kiwi International will miss one week of action and will be available for selection in Round 6.

Young-gun Dylan Napa has been promoted from the bench to the starting side in place of the suspended Hargreaves, with the Cook Islands International set to start his second-ever NRL match.

In the only other change to the side, Robinson welcomes back Sonny Bill Williams from a three week suspension.

The 2013 RLIF International Player of the Year has been named in the backrow alongside Boyd Cordner and Frank-Paul Nuuausala, with Mitchell Aubusson dropping back to the bench.
