All the Late Mail team news ahead of this week's NRL matches.

Titans v Panthers, Sunday 4.05pm at Cbus Super Stadium

Titans: Two late changes to the Gold Coast pack with reserves Nathan Peats and Sam Stone coming straight into the starting side for Erin Clark and Keegan Hipgrave who have been cut from the match-day squad completely. Dale Copley returns from injury, bumping Phillip Sami to wing and Treymain Spry out of the side. Captain Kevin Proctor is also back from a biceps injury as a straight swap in the back row for Beau Fermor.

Jai Whitbread is promoted to the bench with Sam Lisone and Treymain Spry dropping out of the extended squad 24 hours before kick-off. Jamal Fogarty has been named despite going off injured last week. Gold Coast have won only one of their past 11 games at Cbus Super Stadium.

Panthers: A late forwards reshuffle with Tyrone May coming off the bench into lock, Isaah Yeo moving into the second row and Billy Burns to the bench.  Daine Laurie and LIndsay Smith were the match-day cuts for Penrith. Burns had originally been slated to replace Viliame Kikau, who is out with a calf injury, in the second row. Pat Hollis was the other player omitted from the reduced 19-man squad on Saturday.

Caleb Aekins returns to fullback for Dylan Edwards (hamstring) while Brent Naden moves to centre for Dean Whare (thigh) with Malakai Watene-Zelezniak called up on the wing. Api Koroisau (elbow) is also injured with Mitch Kenny in at hooker. 

The Panthers have won five of their past six games against the Titans.
