In the backline, Jackson Willison comes in at centre, while Josh Adams is given a start on the wing.

In the forward pack, Jack Singleton returns at hooker, while Will Spencer comes into the second row.

David Denton and Alafoti Faosiliva start in the back row as Warriors look to make it back-to-back wins in the competition.
