Trent Robinson has named his side for this Friday night's ANZ Stadium showdown with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in Round 11 of the 2014 NRL Premiership.
With the quartet of Daniel Tupou, Michael Jennings (NSW Blues), Aidan Guerra (QLD Maroons) and Boyd Cordner (injury) unavailable, the Head Coach has been forced into a reshuffle of the side that last weekend went down to the Cowboys plus the inclusion of a few new faces.
Anthony Minichiello remains at fullback with Shaun Kenny-Dowall shifting from right centre to the left wing and Samisoni Langi named in the No. 3 shirt to partner SKD on the left edge.
Mitchell Aubusson moves from the backrow to SKD's vacated right centre position to partner Roger Tuivasa-Sheck out wide.
James Maloney returns to his preferred 5/8 role, while Mitchell Pearce also returns to the seventeen after missing last week's match due to Club suspension.
The front-row remains the same, while Dylan Napa will start in a new-look backrow alongside Sonny Bill Williams and Frank-Paul Nuuausala.
Daniel Mortimer and Isaac Liu are again named on the bench, while new faces Kane Evans and Remi Casty round out the reserves.
Casty will make his NRL debut in the match.
