Panthers coach Ivan Cleary has reduced his squad to face Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday.
Pat Hollis has been omitted while, in another blow to the club's injury-depleted playing roster, Viliame Kikau has been withdrawn after suffering a minor calf injury at training.
Billy Burns has been promoted to the starting side and Matt Burton to the bench as the Panthers prepare to field the competition's least experienced line-up, with only 968 combined NRL games between the 17 players.
Kikau joins Dylan Edwards (hamstring), Api Koroisau (elbow), Dean Whare (thigh), Brian To'o (ankle), Kurt Capewell (knee), Zane Tetevano (back) and Jed Cartwright (shoulder) on the sidelines.
The Panthers will wear the pink 2020 Alternate Jersey.
