Roosters v Titans, Sunday, 1:50pm AEDT at WIN Stadium

Roosters: Rookie winger Claire Reed was named on Tuesday but won't play, causing a reshuffle with Yasmin Meakes shifting to the wing and Sarah Togatuki to the back row. Maori All Stars prop Mya Hill-Moana comes into the side for her NRLW debut.

A new-look halves pairing with Raecene McGregor promoted from the bench to take over at halfback. Jocelyn Kelleher switches to five-eighth and last week's No.7 Zahara Temara goes to the bench. Skipper Corban Baxter remains part of the reserves after she was a late withdrawal in round one due to a positive COVID-19 test and could be a late inclusion.

Titans: Maroons representative Brianna Clark comes out of the side with April Ngatupuna called in for her maiden NRLW game off the bench. Steph Hancock will start in the front-row while Titans coach Jamie Feeney has called in Indigenous All Stars centre Jasmine Peters in a minor backline reshuffle. With Peters in the centres, Lauren Dam shifts out to the wing in place of Jetaya Faifua.
