Adam Hartigan has named his side for this Sunday afternoon's U20s clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium with the Head Coach making three changes to his side.

Vincent Leuluai moves from the backrow to the middle, starting at prop alongside Richard Skelton, and Isaac Crichton drops out of the side through injury seeing Alex Lyons move straight in to the backrow alongside Nat Butcher and Ryan Turner.

Turner's promotion from 18th man in Round 1 also sees him appear in his first match for the Club.

The Junior Chooks will be looking for redemption following last Saturday's Round 1 loss to the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville, meaning this week's game is crucial in ensuring Hartigan's side aren't heading into their first home game win-less.

The Rabbitohs too suffered a loss in their Holden Cup season-opener 36-10.
