SP Hunters players Justin Olam, Bland Abavu and Adex Wera have been suspended following a video review by the Queensland Rugby League judiciary decision.
Olam and Abavu have been suspended for one week, while Wera has been suspended for two weeks.
Olam was charged for a shoulder charge while Abavu was cited for a dangerous throw and dangerous contact in last weekend’s match.
Wera was charged for a dangerous throw and will see him miss the next two remaining season proper games.
These suspensions and the season ending injury to centre Thompson Teteh have forced coach Michael Marum to rush in Noel Zeming and Stargroth Amean back from injury into the starting line-up
Both Zeming and Amean have been out for the past six weeks, Zeming with a hand injury while Amean has just recovered from a knee injury.
Amean will start in his accustomed position at fullback while Zeming on the wing.
Marum has also included Wartovo Puara Jnr, Adam Korave and Nixon Borana, who is back after eight weeks, in an extended 19-man squad.
Marum will finalise the travelling 18-man team on Thursday afternoon.
The team travels to Cairns on Friday morning for their match against Northern Pride at Barlow Park on Sunday at 3.35 pm.
