Round 20 Team News: Katoa to debut, Holland and Wakeham start

For the second week running a Bulldogs player will create a milestone with full-back Will Hopoate reaching 100 NRL games for the club this afternoon against the Penrith Panthers at ANZ Stadium (3:00PM AEST).

Steve Georgallis has made a number of changes for tomorrow's clash with the Penrith Panthers.

A forced change has been made during warm-up with Aiden Tolman ruled out with a calf injury.

Sauaso Sue will start the game and Dean Britt comes onto the bench.

James Roumanos was omitted from the final line-up an hour before kick-off.

Tim Lafai will miss the game after he failed to have a high tackle charge downgraded at the judiciary on Tuesday night and will be replaced by Kerrod Holland.

Brandon Wakeham replaces Lachlan Lewis after he failed to recover from a HIA sustained last week with Wakeham's place on the bench taken by Tui Katoa, who will make his NRL debut.

2020 Development Player: Tui Katoa

Jake Averillo will miss the match and Jack Cogger will start at five-eighth.

This weekend's fixture will also see the club say thanks and farewell to Aiden Tolman, Kieran Foran, Marcelo Montoya, Kerrod Holland, Jack Cogger, Sauaso Sue, Tim Lafai and Isaiah Tass.
