Connelly Lemuelu will start in the second row tonight as the Dolphins make several changes for the Battle of Brisbane against the Broncos.
In the historic sold-out match at The Gabba, Lemuelu will start the match with Herman Ese’ese to go to the bench.
Kenny Bromwich will begin the game at prop.
As foreshadowed earlier in the week, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow will play in the centres, where he has scored three tries in two matches for the Maroons in recent weeks.
That allows Kodi Nikorima to shift to fullback where he excelled for the Dolphins while ‘The Hammer’ was on State of Origin duty.
Euan Aitken will provide cover for both the backs and edge forwards by moving back to the interchange list.
