Sea Eagles: Reuben Garrick will again fill in at fullback for Tom Trbojevic and Moses Suli is the new winger.
Dylan Walker has been promoted to the starting side at halfback with Daly Cherry-Evans on Maroons duty. Cade Cust is the new face on the bench.
Back-rower Jack Gosiewski has been named among the reserves as he nears a return from a foot injury.
Raiders: Xavier Savage is the new fullback in place of Bailey Simonsson (toe) while Matt Frawley gets the nod at No.6 with Jack Wighton on Blues duty.
Emre Guler moves from the bench to starting prop for Josh Papalii and Ryan James joins the bench.
Hudson Young has earned a recall to replace the injured Elliott Whitehead (facial cut and shoulder).

Rabbitohs: Blake Taaffe has been named at fullback with Latrell Mitchell on Origin duty while Braidon Burns comes in at centre for Maroon Dane Gagai.
Hame Sele moves to lock to cover for Blues star Cameron Murray and Thomas Burgess will start at prop.
Jaydn Su'A gets a recall in the back row to fill in for Queensland rep Jai Arrow and Benji Marshall starts at hooker for Blues rake Damien Cook.
Patrick Mago and Peter Mamouzelos are the new faces on the bench.
Jaxson Paulo has been named among the reserves as he nears a return from a wrist injury.
Cowboys: Daejarn Asi comes in at the back for Val Holmes, who is away on Maroons duty while Connolly Lemuelu (thumb) makes a welcome return to fill the hole left by Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow's Origin call-up.
Coen Hess is named to start at prop with Lachlan Burr on the bench but they may swap around on game day as they did last week. Tom Gilbert joins the bench with Francis Molo on Origin duty.
Winger Kyle Feldt's exclusion from Queensland's squad will also be welcomed as the Cowboys try to keep pace with the free-scoring Rabbitohs.

Bulldogs: Despite coach Trent Barrett's misgivings, four of the five players forced to go into COVID isolation return to the side with only playmaker Brandon Wakeham missing out. Corey Waddell comes into the second row, Sione Katoa replaces Jeremy Marshall-King (suspension) at dummy-half, rookie Aaron Schoupp displaces debutant Falakiko Manu at centre and Dylan Napa is in for Ava Seumanufagai (suspension) on the bench.
Joe Stimson is promoted from the interchange to partner Waddell in the second row with Jackson Topine downgraded to the reserves and Matt Doorey out of the squad altogether. Debutant Bailey Biondi-Odo retains the No.14 jersey while Ofahiki Ogden and Renouf Atoni have also been named on the bench.
Roosters: Lock Victor Radley is back at lock after completing his suspension but dummy-half Ben Marschke has failed to make the 21-man squad. Isaac Liu moves from No.13 to the second row to take the place of Origin rep Angus Crichton.
Centre Billy Smith makes his first appearance since 2019 after missing last season with a knee injury with Joey Manu shifting to fullback to stand in for Blues skipper James Tedesco. Rookie Joseph Suaalii surprisingly misses the 17 with Matt Ikuvalu recalled on the wing after being relegated to 18th man duties last week.
Drew Hutchison swaps places with five-eighth Lachlan Lam after making his return via the interchange in round 16 while Nat Butcher and rookie prop Ben Thomas replace Fletcher Baker (isolation) and Daniel Suluka-Fifita (suspended) on the interchange.

Sharks: Five-eighth Matt Moylan remains sidelined by a calf injury so Connor Tracey moves from centre to five-eighth and Will Chambers returns in the centres after missing the Brisbane game to be with his wife who was due to give birth to their third child.
Braydon Trindall reverts to the bench after playing five-eighth against the Broncos and Mawene Hiroti drops to the reserves.
Warriors: Reece Walsh (hamstring) and Matt Lodge headline a raft of changes with the rookie No.1 again pushing Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to the wing and the Broncos recruit relegating Kane Evans to the interchange.
Jazz Tevaga has been promoted from the bench to replace lock Tohu Harris (shoulder) while fellow benchie Bayley Sironen swaps places with back-rower Ben Murdoch-Masila. Eliesa Katoa (shoulder/ankle) has been named in the second row despite failing to finish the loss to the Dragons.
Chad Townsend (shoulder) is out but Kodi Nikorima returns from an ankle injury and Sean O'Sullivan shifts into the No.7.
Rocco Berry has replaced Adam Pompey in the centres and Ed Kosi drops out to accommodate Tuivasa-Sheck's move.

Yeah that Johnson fella nobody wanted a while back; he's not bad, is he?

The Roosters made hard work of the limited Bulldogs.
