NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named a different looking side this week, with a couple of welcomed returning faces and some changes to the backline in the absence of Daniel Tupou.

Captains Boyd Cordner and Jake Friend are both set to make their return after missing significant game time, with Cordner to line-up for the first time since Round 13. 

With Friend returning to the starting hooker position, Victor Radley shuffles to the utility spot on the bench.

Mitchell Aubusson moves into the centre position and Joseph Manu steps out to the wing to cover for Tupou on the left edge. 

Aidan Guerra steps back into the starting line-up and Ryan Matterson moves back to the bench.
