Titans: In a blow for the Titans - and possibly Queensland - AJ Brimson has been left out of the team to face Manly.

Originally a reserve, Brimson's omission leaves Jayden Campbell at fullback.

In positional moves announced an hour before kick-off, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui moves from lock to prop with Moeaki Fotuaika dropping back to the bench.

Tyrone Peachey moves from the bench to lock and Mitch Rein from the reserves list to the interchange.

Sam McIntyre will be the 18th man.

Joseph Vuna and Anthony Don dropped off the reserves list on Saturday.

The Titans have scored an average of 32.8 points per game at Cbus Super Stadium in 2021.

Sea Eagles: Kurt Deluis replaces the injured Jake Trbojevic but will start from the bench with Sean Keppie to be the run-on lock. Tevita Funa will be the 18th man.

Christian Tuipulotu and Jake Trbojevic were the two players omitted from the extended squad 24 hours before kick-off.

Toafofoa Sipley has been cleared to play after suffering a head knock in his last match. 

Tom Trbojevic returns at fullback after being rested last week in a move that will send Reuben Garrick back to the wing and Brad Parker to the centres. Moses Suli is back on the reserves list.

Sea Eagles captain Daly Cherry-Evans will play his 250th NRL game.
