They welcome back veteran winger Kyle Feldt from a hamstring injury, which pushes speedster Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow to the bench.
In another key change, Reuben Cotter will start off the bench with Coen Hess to start, while Tom Gilbert is out due to personal reasons with Luciano Leilua replacing him in the run-on side and Jamayne Taunoa-Brown joining the bench.
As for the Warriors, interim coach Stacey Jones has stuck with the same 17 that got the job done over the Bulldogs last week.
The Warriors are chasing back-to-back wins for the first time since Round 5, while the Cowboys will be hoping to bounce back from last week’s loss to the Roosters.
