[Team Changes - The Roosters lose Anthony Minichiello, Nate Myles and Mitchell Pearce to Origin 3 duty but might get Shaun Kenny-Dowall back this week. Frank-Paul Nu'uausala is suspended and Boyd Cordner is injured, so Aiden Guerra, Brad Takairangi and Tom Symonds are the new backrow. Braith Anasta goes to five-eighth while Mark Khierallah is the new face at fullback. Justin Carney might be unlikely considering his hammy injury late in Sunday's loss to the Knights. While Tinirau Arona is the new face on the bench. ]

Josh Miller has also been named on the extended bench but is yet to face a QLD Cup judicial charge for striking. ]
