In the backs, Tom Kingston comes in to the wing, while young fullback Jack Debreczeni and flyhalf Bryce Hegarty will share the initial place kicking duties with Jason Woodward on the bench.
 
Flanker Jordy Reid returns to the matchday squad, and will be looking to make his second appearance of the season after impressing as a replacement against the Brumbies in Canberra in Round 16.
