Captain Jarrod Witts and the versatile Nick Holman return to the squad after being managed in Round 10, as do Academy graduates Jed Walter and Jake Rogers.

Coming out of the side from last Thursday’s win are Ned Moyle, Alex Davies, Sam Day and Brayden Fiorini, with all four players being omitted.

Davies, Fiorini and Hewago Oea have been named as emergencies.

The SUNS are eyeing a third consecutive victory which would consolidate its place inside the Top 8. The Blues & SUNS have split the ledger in its last five matches at two wins apiece with Saturday’s meeting to be the first between the clubs at Marvel Stadium with crowds permitted since 2019.

The match also features a tantalising battle at each of the ground between joint Coleman Medal leaders Ben King and Charlie Curnow.

SUNS members in attendance are also invited to rub shoulders with players at a post-match function from 4:15pm – 5:30pm in Victory Room B, located on Level 1.

First bounce is at 1:45pm Saturday at Marvel Stadium and broadcast on Fox Footy, Kayo and the Seven network (check your local guides).
