All change as City and Country line up for big game

RIVAL coaches Brad Fittler and Trent Barrett could be excused for forgetting who is playing where in their City and Country Origin sides.

They have both undergone more changes than the Federal Government's budget policy since they were named last weekend.

Country, which is chasing back-to-back wins, has lost classy fullback Josh Dugan (ankle), forward Trent Merrin (hand) and a third Dragons player, Tyson Frizell (ankle), giving Titans pair David Mead (pictured) and Kevin Gordon a chance.

The side now has a distinct Newcastle look with James McManus, Jarrod Mullen, Tyrone Roberts, Beau Scott and late bench inclusion Robbie Rochow in the squad for Sunday's clash in Dubbo.

It's a similar scenario for Fittler who has lost Sharks utility Wade Graham and back-up half Trent Hodkinson, replaced by rugged Eels forward Darcy Lussick and Cronulla's Michael Lichaa who has taken Hodkinson's place on the bench.
