Luke McBeath will remain at hooker for Southcity despite picking up a shoulder problem last week.
The Bulls utility has had a light week at training in a bid to be right for the clash against Gundagai for a place in the grand final on Sunday.
Captain-coach Kyle McCarthy was resisted the temptation to bring Nathan Rose straight back into the starting side.
The Bulls playmaker got through uninjured for the first time since May but will start off the bench again in the grand final rematch.
"We'll ease him into it again," McCarthy said.
"That hamstring has gone that many times and I don't I could live with myself if it went again."
McCarthy thought the star playmaker added plenty to the side, even with their cautious approach.
"Even without his great running game, which wasn't quite where it was before, just the talk and the leadership getting blokes where they needed to be helped," McCarthy said.
Ben Lucas has retained his place at five-eighth.
McBeath came off late in the 22-18 win over Tumut on Sunday, but has been cleared to play.
"He's been on light duties this week but will be ready for go," McBeath said.
"It will be the same set up as last week."
Gundagai are yet to be beaten on their home turf, including a 34-0 thrashing of the Bulls there in the first half of the season.
However Southcity were able to hit back at Harris Park.
It gives them confidence they can atone for the heavy beating.
"It was poor, we discussed how bad we were at length and we can't afford a slow start," McCarthy said.
"We've got to weather the storm and then lift when they tire.
"Hopefully we can do that, unlike last time."
Southcity are desperate for a win to ensure not only their fourth straight grand final berth, but always a week off heading into the decider.
With plenty of niggling injury concerns, McCarthy sees a win as their best chance of taking the Group Nine crown back off Gundagai.
"There is a lot of blokes who have been the walking wounded for the last five or six weeks," McCarthy said.
"There is a lot of sore and tired bodies but we need to throw everything at them as the week off would do us the world of good."
Hayden Jeans is still on the sidelines after injuring his calf before he even had the opportunity to touch the ball in Southcity's loss to Brothers leading into finals.
They managed to contain the Blues forward pack without him last week and McCarthy doesn't believe he would be available until the grand final.
Gundagai also named an unchanged side from the one who thrashed Tumut 34-6 a fortnight ago to claim the minor premiership.
