In this week's sportsbet.com.au Team Announcement we catch-up with Assistant Coach Craig Fitzgibbon to chat through the side named for Saturday's Round 25 showdown with the Melbourne Storm, last week's win and what improvement's required to continue our winning ways heading into the Finals.
Trent Robinson has named his side for this Saturday Night's showdown with the Melbourne Storm at Allianz Stadium, with the Head Coach sticking with the same seveteen that last Sunday overcame the NZ Warriors 46-12.
In the only changes to the side, Sonny Bill Williams returns to the starting side after coming off the bench in his return from injury last weekend in place of Frank-Paul Nuuausala.
SBW will start in his No.12 jersey with Aidan Guerra shifting to lock.
In other changes, Sam Moa has been named to start in place of Dylan Napa.
Napa will join FPN on the bench alongside Isaac Liu and Mitchell Aubusson.
