Intrust Super Cup premiers Northern Pride have made one change to their 17 for Sunday’s NRL State Championship match against NSW Cup holders Penrith Panthers in Sydney.

Pride back-rower Joel Riethmuller will miss the inaugural match after accepting an early plea to a Grade 1 Detrimental Conduct charge.

With Riethmuller to serve a one match suspension, promising forward Jack Svendsen will start from the interchange bench.

Pride coach Jason Demetriou has also named Tom Hancock and Patrick Kaufusi on an extended bench.

The Pride are coming off an impressive 36-4 grand final victory over Easts Tigers at Suncorp Stadium.

Penrith Panthers were just as ruthless in their decider, crushing the Newcastle Knights 48-12 to clinch the NSW Cup.
