Bulldogs: Aiden Tolman will return, and start, after self-isolating following a COVID-19 scare. His return moves Renouf To'omaga back to the bench. Nick Meaney and Ofahiki Ogden were the two players left out an hour before kick-off.

Kerrod Holland replaces the suspended Christian Crichton in the backline and Jack Cogger joins the interchange. Sione Katoa and Lachlan Lewis were the players trimmed from the reserves list on Saturday. Canterbury have won their past three games against Wests Tigers.

Wests Tigers: Michael Maguire's team will start 1-17, with Benji Marshall and Chris Lawrence the final two players dropped from the squad. Tommy Talau replaces Robert Jennings (hamstring) on the wing, Oliver Clark replaces Zane Musgrove (foot) at prop and Matt Eisenhuth starts at lock for Alex Twal (knee), with Elijah Taylor joining the bench. Billy Walters and Reece Hoffman were omitted from the extended bench 24 hours before kick-off. Wests Tigers will play their 500th game since entering the NRL premiership in 2000.
