Bulldogs v Panthers, Sunday at CommBank Stadium

Bulldogs: Ava Seumanufagai is a late inclusion on the bench for the Bulldogs with Chris Patolo dropping back to 18th man.

Kyle Flanagan has been recalled to the halfback spot for his first NRL game of the season, with Brandon Wakeham shifting to the bench and Bailey Biondi-Odo to 18th man following last Sunday's 44-0 loss to Melbourne. 

Panthers: The Panthers are 1-17 with no late changes. James Fisher-Harris and Liam Martin both resume in their starting jerseys with Spencer Leniu and Scott Sorensen listed back on the bench. Viliame Kikau suffered a head knock in last week’s win but, with a nine-day turnaround, is expected to play.

Robert Jennings was the last man omitted and Lindsay Smith is 18th man.
