Update: Trent Robinson has trimmed his team list ahead of tomorrow night's huge clash with Penrith.

Sitili Tupouniua, Ben Marschke, Naufahu Whyte, Kevin Naiqama and Adam Keighran come out of the side this week.

Tupouniua's absence sees a reshuffle in the forwards, with Nat Butcher moving from lock to the edge, while Siosiua Taukeiaho takes Butcher's place at lock.

Lindsay Collins comes into the starting side in the front row, while Terrell May will make his NRL debut and become Rooster #1209 off the bench.

The remainder of the team is unchanged, with the final 17 to be confirmed one hour prior to kick off tomorrow.
