Corey Thompson will don the number one jersey once again after being named at fullback by Coach Michael Maguire for Wests Tigers' clash with the North Queensland Cowboys.
As per last week's late change, Thompson will line up at fullback for Friday's game with captain Moses Mbye shifting to the centres. Robert Jennings returns to the side on the wing in place of Mahe Fonua, who is ruled out due to injury.
Fonua sustained a lis franc injury in his side's loss to the Canberra Raiders last weekend and has undergone surgery to begin his recovery.
David Nofoaluma retains his spot on the opposite wing with Esan Marsters lining up in the centres for what will be his 50th NRL appearance for Wests Tigers.
Following a successful return from injury last week, Chris Lawrence has been named on the bench alongside Jacob Liddle, Thomas Mikaele and Josh Aloiai, while Michael Chee Kam features in the run-on side after starting last week's game.
Paul Momirovski, Chris McQueen, Elijah Taylor and Luke Garner have been named as reserves in the 21-man squad, which will be cut to 19 players on Thursday night.
