Adam Hartigan has reshuffled his side for tonight's Round 23 clash with the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval after the withdrawal of a fan-favourite for the young Chooks and the return of another.

Jackson Hastings will not feature in this evening's Holden Cup clash, while Nene Macdonald will return after a stint in the NRL side.

Hastings' place in the halves will be taken by Macdonald.

In other changes, Jokatama Dokonivalu will start from the bench with Willis Meehan shifting to the front row and Piki Rogers into the backrow from the pine.
