With Jake Trbojevic unavailable with a hip injury, Fittler has brought in both the Panthers’ Angus Crichton, who missed the series opener through suspension, and the Storm’s Dale Finucane. However, Payne Haas is widely tipped to be promoted to starting prop, after being named among the reserves in Townsville.

Should Finucane be picked, the in-form lock would add to his four representative jerseys, having played across each of the last two series.

Other than that, Fittler has stuck true with the side that pummelled Queensland 50-6 in Game 1. Liam Martin has been retained despite limited minutes in the thumping win.

The Blues will announce a full line-up during the week, ahead of Sunday’s crunch clash at Suncorp Stadium. The squad is set to travel to Kingscliff on Monday, to avoid any potential hiccups caused by Sydney’s recent COVID-19 outbreak.
