Full Round 5 NRL team lists

DAVID Fifita has been named at lock in place of the suspended Tevita Pangai Jnr as teh Broncos look to get their season back on track.

Brisbane have just one win from the opening four rounds and are in danger of dropping right off the pace if they lose again when they host the hard-working Wests Tigers at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday night.

Coach Anthony Seibold has made a string of changes to his side with Fifita getting his chance in the middle while young forward Patrick Carrigan has been named on the bench.

Hulking front-rower Payne Haas, who has now completed a four-week club-imposed suspension, was expected to play but has been named as 18th man.
