He was joined by big-bodied utility Jesse McKinnon who has also been listed in the midfield while Ben Haren adds flexibility on the extended interchange.
Brighton Bombers product Danny Juckers (20, 182cm and 79kg) has been included for what would potentially be his first Statewide Super League game.

Glenelg could only make one change to its starting line-up for the blockbuster against Norwood at The Parade.
