Rookie Sam Stone is believed to be the unlucky player to make room for the former Shark.
Danny Levi has been battling with a hamstring strain during the week and has been restricted slightly at training, but is expected to be a certain starter.
Talented young half Brock Lamb was put through the concussion protocol during the week and will be good to go after passing all tests with flying colours.
