Sea Eagles: Reuben Garrick (shoulder) and Joel Thompson (ankle) are out with Abbas Miski called up on the wing, Jack Gosiewski starting in the back row and Corey Waddell joining the interchange.
Exciting rookie Josh Schuster, a five-eighth or ball-playing lock, has been included in the reserves – perhaps signalling that he’s on the cusp of a debut. The Sea Eagles have lost four of their five games at Lottoland in 2020.
Wests Tigers: After the club’s backline woes against Penrith, coach Michael Maguire has moved Adam Doueihi from fullback to centre with Moses Mbye shifting to fullback while winger Tommy Talau has been dropped for AJ Kepaoa.
Josh Aloiai returns at prop, Matt Eisenhuth goes to the bench and Shawn Blore drops out. Wests Tigers have conceded 192 points in their past six games – the same amount as Manly.
