Matulino, whose last appearance was in the second row against South Sydney in Perth on June 7, has been named on the bench.

The only change to the starting line-up sees prop Suaia Matagi replacing veteran Sam Rapira who has a back injury.

Matulino's return leaves him on target to make his 150th appearance this year; he would be the 10th to achieve the feat for the club.
