Reserve Grade coach Simon Woolford has named his 21-man squad for his side's Round 6 away match against the Penrith Panthers.

There are several changes in the forward pack, as Anthony Tupou and Joe Wardle have been promoted to the NRL squad's top 17.

In their place Jacob Saifiti has been named to start at prop, and Luke Yates in the second row.

Pauli Pauli also backs up in the starting front row, while Jacob Gagan has been named to return to the centres after making his NRL Club debut last weekend.
