The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will bring in 21 year-old winger Tui Katoa for his second NRL match against the Broncos in Brisbane on Saturday (5:30PM AEDT).
Ava Seumanufagai, Chris Smith, Dean Britt and Lachlan Lewis have been omitted from the game day squad.
Coach Trent Barrett has also brought Dylan Napa into the starting side, with fellow prop Ofahiki Ogden reverting to the bench.
Tui Katoa, who made his debut last season against the Penrith Panthers in Round 20, will replace Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, who has taken an early plea of two matches for a careless high tackle.
In other changes, Ray Faitala-Mariner drops out of the squad after sustaining a foot injury against the Penrith Panthers, with Corey Waddell taking his place in the starting line-up.
Joe Stimson comes on to the bench for Waddell, for his first NRL match of the season.
Jeremy Marshall-King will start at hooker with Sione Katoa coming off the bench.
