Gold Training under-20s centre coach Ben Woolf will welcome the returns of Nathan Watts and Rory Humphreys to the team that lost narrowly to Melbourne Storm at AAMI Stadium on Sunday.

He will field the same starting 13 against the big Bulldogs side at Gosford this Sunday (1.45pm) but made some changes to an extended bench.

Watts returns from a shoulder injury after missing the past couple of games and will take the place of Anthony Colman who will play for Tweed Heads in the Intrust Super Cup.

Humphreys will be back from an injury lay-off (knee) and has been chosen on the bench, while Australian Schoolboys Tyronne Roberts Davis and 18-year-old Jerome Veve have been included on the six-man interchange list.

Roberts, a Keebra Park State High student, has played three NYC games this season and scored three tries, while Veve, a prop/second-rower, has been impressing with Burleigh Bears Colts and would make his Holden Cup debut if called into the match.
