Jacob Lillyman will again provide plenty from the bench for the Maroons in the Origin decider.

Queensland prop Jacob Lillyman returns for the Warriors this week, replacing the suspended Charlie Gubb in their only change.

Second-rower Bodene Thompson remains on the sideline with an ankle injury – although he could still be a late inclusion – while Albert Vete won't play due to a hamstring injury.

Tuimoala Lolohea has again been named on the bench after getting very little game time in the Warriors' golden point loss to Manly last week.

"I'm very committed to Tui and his position with the club," Warriors coach Andrew McFadden said.

"I know the circumstances at the weekend weren't ideal for him but we've got a lot of faith in Tui and he'll get game time this weekend.

"We've got him on contract until 2018 so he's going to be very valuable to the club.

"Certainly his best position is probably in the halves and we've got to keep developing him but at the moment our two halves Shaun (Johnson) and Tommy (Leuluai) are going really well for us."
