The Dogs are also without Sam Kasiano with suspension, meaning their front row stocks are very low. Tim Browne has been named to start at prop alongside Aiden Tolman, with Lloyd Perrett and Antonio Kaufusi on the bench.
Brett Morris is not fit with a hamstring complaint so Sam Perrett moves to fullback and Corey Thompson takes his position on the wing. Tim Lafai’s is also out with injury so Moses Mbye shifts to centre with Josh Reynolds moving to five-eighth and Chase Stanley on the bench.
For the Dragons, the only change has been the selection of Rory O’Brien named on a five-man bench.
