Panthers: Ivan Cleary has made a late switch with Tyrone May coming into the starting side at centre and Brent Naden reverting to the bench as he did in the preliminary final.

Viliame Kikau will return from a one-game suspension in the back row, with Kurt Capewell named on the bench and Mitch Kenny out of the 17.

Hooker Api Koroisau suffered a shoulder "burner" injury in last week's win over Souths but he is good to go.

Dean Whare and Spencer Leniu were omitted from the reserves list 24 hours before kick-off. Matt Burton and Kenny were the last two players cut an hour before game time.

The Panthers have the chance to equal their 2003 club record of 21 wins in a season.

The Storm boast 34 games of grand final experience, compared with three for the Panthers.
