Panthers coach Anthony Griffin has named his side to face New Zealand Warriors at Panthers Stadium on Friday.
The Panthers go into the game without Origin representatives James Maloney, Nathan Cleary and Tyrone Peachey.
Isaah Yeo assumes the captaincy while Tyrone May and Jarome Luai, who have enjoyed success as a halves combination in the ladder-leading Panthers ISP side, get their chance to impress on the NRL stage.
Waqa Blake makes his long-awaited return from a syndesmosis injury while Corey Harawira-Naera has overcome a groin issue to take his place on the bench.
The Panthers will wear the 2018 Home Jersey.
