With Tariq Sims, Reagan Campbell-Gillard and Ryan Matterson all not selected for Game Two, Trbojevic will start at prop alongside Payne Haas, while Roosters forward Angus Crichton returns to the squad and has been named on the bench.

Powerhouse Siosifa Talakai will become the fifth debutant for the Blues this series after he was also named on the interchange list, with Cronulla teammate Nicho Hynes listed as 18th Man as he was for Game One.
