Injuries to regular halves Trent Barrett (quad) and Mathew Head (knee) has forced the change but created opportunities for others, namely Clint Greenshields at fullback.
?Clint is a great player who has just been waiting for his opportunity,? said Brown. ?He has done a great job for us over the past weeks and deserves this chance to secure the number one jumper?.
Scans today confirmed anterior cruciate ligament damage for Head who will undergo a knee reconstruction and miss the remainder of the season.
