Head Coach Trent Robinson has been forced into a late change of his side for tonight's Round 22 clash with the Titans after injury to Remi Casty saw the French international drop out of the side named last Tuesday.

Casty was named as one of six on an extended bench and will tonight be replaced by young front-rower Kane Evans.

Evans will start from the bench alongside Mitchell Aubusson, Isaac Liu and Dylan Napa with utility Kurt Kara also dropping out of the matchday seventeen to act as 18th man.

Evans, who has represented Fiji at international level and also NSW in the Under 20s Origin fixture, made his NRL debut earlier in the 2014 season against the Parramatta Eels in Round 2 at Allianz Stadium.

Averaging 14 tackles, 4 hit-ups and 50 metres a game so far in his NRL career, Evans will tonight be tested up against arguably some of the fiercest forwards in rugby league in the form of Nate Myles and Greg Bird.

In the only other change to the side, Robinson has opted to start young-gun Dylan Napa in place of Sam Moa who will start from the bench.
