McCullough has been named in the No.9, while Kalyn Ponga returns to fullback after missing last week through suspension.
Tex Hoy remains in the team via the bench after Connor Watson suffered a syndesmosis injury which is expected to sideline him for 6-8 weeks.
Aidan Guerra will start in the backrow with Lachlan Fitzgibbon set to miss another week with a hamstring complaint.
Herman Ese'ese will start at lock, while Brodie Jones has been retained on the bench after making his first grade debut last week.
