This is one of four changes that Hunters coach, Michael Marum has made to his side that was announced on Tuesday after training.
Wera replaces the injured Stargroth Amean who is out with a rib injury. Thompson Teteh moves to the centres.
Henry Wan makes his return to prop while Adam Korave moves back to second rower in place of Tuvi Lepan who suffered a concussion in last Sunday’s one point win over the Townsville Blackhawks.
Atte Bina will start at half back partnering Watson Boas while brother Ase Boas and Timothy Lomai will start from the bench.
Marum explained that Wartovo Puara is under an injury cloud and so has been named as 19th man.
