Opacic, who has scored four tries in eight games this season, is out of Friday's clash, with Jonus Pearson coming in.

The 22-year-old Opacic suffered the injury two weeks ago and has not recovered in time.

Pearson has made just one NRL appearance, scoring two tries on debut against the Parramatta Eels in round 23.

Jordan Kahu replaces Opacic in his preferred position of centre, while Pearson will play on the wing.
