Talented 21 year-old centre Morgan Harper will make his NRL debut for the Bulldogs this Saturday against the Brisbane Broncos at ANZ Stadium (5-30pm).
The former Junior Kiwi, who starred for the Bulldogs in last season's Reserve Grade Grand Final, scoring the winning try in the 70th minute, has been earmarked as a player for the future after being elevated to the Top 30 squad this season.
Harper, will move into the centres to take the place of Will Hopoate, who returns to fullback to replace Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, who has a knee injury.
The other change will see Reimis Smith return in the centres after missing a game through suspension.
He will take the place of Kerrod Holland who suffered a shoulder injury in last week's defeat by the Cowboys.
