Heath has made a number of late changes to the team originally named to face the Roos, with Jordan Rankin and Joel Edwards both named after originally included in the NRL squad.

Named to make his return from injury this weekend, Matt Ballin will not play in today's game as he continues his recovery process, and is expected to be available for selection next week.

Holden Cup graduate Veiru Mapesone will partner Justin Hunt in the halves.
