Andrew Hart returns from a one-match suspension for South Sydney's National Rugby League city derby with the Roosters at Aussie Stadium on Sunday.
Hart replaces prop Frank Puletua, who suffered a season-ending dislocated shoulder against Wests Tigers last Saturday night. Justin Smith, the goalkicking hero in the Rabbitohs' last-minute win against the Tigers, has been promoted from the bench to replace suspended second rower and captain Bryan Fletcher.
Fletcher pleaded guilty to a careless high tackle and accepted a two-match ban. Veteran hooker Jason Death will captain the Rabbitohs.
