Brothers Tyler and Callum Brown will both return, while Isaac Quaynor is also back after his nasty shin injury he suffered against the Swans.
Travis Varcoe is one of two omissions for the Pies for the Gabba contest, who have managed Levi Greenwood and lost Steele Sidebottom, who has returned back to Victoria for personal reasons.
No.3 draft pick Paddy Dow is one of two inclusions for the Blues, who will be without half-back Sam Petrevski-Seton (managed).
