Coen Hess will miss the Raiders showdown through a groin injury, with Mitch Dunn replacing him in the second row.

Gideon Gela-Mosby and Shane Wright will make their first NRL appearances of 2019. Gela-Mosby replaces the injured Ben Hampton on the wing, while Wright will start the match on the interchange alongside McGuire, hooker Kurt Baptiste and middle forward Francis Molo.

Justin O’Neill will become the 28th player to appear in 100 games for the Cowboys, joining a prestigious group including teammates Kyle Feldt, John Asiata, Michael Morgan, Matt Scott, Jake Granville, Gavin Cooper and Jason Taumalolo.
