The GIANTS have made two team changes ahead of Saturday’s blockbuster against Brisbane at GIANTS Stadium.
Toby Greene (shin) and Daniel Lloyd (managed) have been withdrawn from the 22 and will be replaced by Bobby Hill and Jackson Hately.
GIANTS General Manager Football Jason McCartney said:
“On a six day break, we’ve taken a cautious approach with Toby who’s pulled up a bit tight after our main session.
“Daniel Lloyd passed all the concussion protocols this week but we’ve opted to take him out of the 22, bearing in mind it’s been a short week.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming Bobby Hill into the side for the first time this year and we know what Jackson Hately can deliver."
Hill, 20, has been in strong form in the practice matches with the exciting forward to line up for just his ninth career match.
Tom Green and Xavier O’Halloran have been added to emergencies.
