Radley was initially named within the 17 regardless of failing a HIA final week. He didn’t go concussion protocols on Friday and so was dominated out with Naufahu Whyte changing him at lock and Ben Thomas becoming a member of the bench.
Manu slots again in at centre, pushing Drew Hutchison to the bench and Corey Allan to the reserves.
