The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will make only one change for this Sunday’s (6:15PM AEST) match against Souths in the Gold Coast, with Ava Seumanufagai returning from suspension to take his place on the bench.
The hard running forward has had a busy week having signed a two year extension to remain at the club until the end of 2023.
Jayden Okunbor will return to the field after recovering from a ruptured ACL injury, suffered in Round 20 last year.
Josh Jackson has reverted to lock after Renouf Atoni dropped out of the game day line-up. Whilst Matt Doorey has been named in the second row, paring up with Corey Waddell.
Ofahiki Ogden has been called to the interchange bench, with Falakiko Manu named as the 18th man reserve.
The match will also see Dylan Napa play his 50th NRL game for the club.
