Titans: Joe Stimson is back in the starting side after coming off the bench in Round 21, with Klese Haas going the other way to join the interchange. With Tino Fa'asuamaleaui still out suspended, Isaac Liu is named to start at prop but could switch with Chris Randall closer to kick-off, as was the case last week. Erin Clark remains the fill-in option at lock after getting through 55 minutes in the role against the Roosters on Saturday.

Cowboys: With star back-rower Jeremiah Nanai facing 4-6 weeks out with a AC joint injury, rookie Kulikefu Finefeuiaki moves into the starting pack and mid-season recruit Sam McIntyre joins the bench. Jamayne Taunoa-Brown is the other new face on the interchange, taking the place of Griffin Neame after the Kiwi failed a HIA in Round 21.
