The former Origin enforcer has not played for the Coast side in recent weeks, having been called back into Craig Bellamy's NRL side.
The big fella has been sorely missed with the Falcons struggling to compete up front, as evidenced in their two most recent losses to Mackay (50-16) and Souths Logan (35-4).
Coach Glen Dreger has made some other changes, mostly to the forwards.
Intrust Super Cup mainstay Rueben Baillie was dropped to the local league for the first time this year.
Baillie, 22, was chosen by the Falcons to attend a one-month training camp under Bellamy at Melbourne in the off-season and had been touted as a potential NRL player.
But the centre/back-rower has finally felt Dreger's wrath, as has Jacob Samoa.
Baillie has been replaced by Jye Ballinger, who shifts from the bench, with Travis Long accounting for Samoa's second-row position.
Mboya Adams will play his first Intrust Super Cup of the year, promoted from local league club Maroochydore.
Melbourne under-20 player Ben Turpin replaces Billy Kitt, who had a forgettable game on Sunday.
Captain Tom Murphy remains on the sidelines and is not expected back for several weeks.
The Falcons have won only two of their 10 matches this year and are second-last on the ladder.
FALCONS: S Young, Y Tonumapea, T Robinson, H Hunt, T Tomusa, B Hampton, J Turpin, T Learoyd-Lahrs, B Brittain, R Hansen, J Stimson, J Ballinger, J Ackerman, T Long, J Vuetibau, M Adams, R Shaxson.
