Darcy Swain and Caderyn Neville combine once again in the second row to tackle the Hurricanes. Rory Scott has been named to start for the first time this season, he will join Rob Valetini and Charlie Cale in the backrow.

Noah Lolesio has featured in every match this season, linking up with captain Ryan Lonergan in the backline. Len Ikitau has been named to start, the outside centre making his return since succumbing to a leg injury in Round 4 against the Highlanders. Tamati Tua will feature at inside centre, with Corey Toole, Ollie Sapsford and Tom Wright completing the backline.

Connal McInerney, Blake Schoupp and Sefo Kautai provide cover for the front row on the interchange bench. Tom Hooper and Jahrome Brown have also been included on the reserves list.

Head Coach Stephen Larkham has opted for a 5-3 split on the bench, selecting Harrison Goddard, Jack Debreczeni and the returning Andy Muirhead for this weekend's all-important clash with the Hurricanes.
