There are only two changes to the starting XV that lost 24-10 to the Rebels two weeks ago, with Lachlan Swinton replacing Jed Holloway at flank and Mark Nawaqanitawase returning to the wing.

Winger James Ramm joins the bench in place of Cameron Clark courtesy of some standout performances for the Emerging Waratahs in recent weeks.

Scrumhalf Jake Gordon will earn his 50th cap for his home state, while fullback Kurtley Beale will become the most capped player in this fixture (11).
