Waratahs will head into the last round of the regular season with a new-look front row.
While Kula Kalondonu remains at loosehead prop, both Rob Wiltshire and James Daley will miss the clash against CSU at Beres Ellwood Oval on Saturday.
Daley is unavailable through work commitments while Wiltshire is nursing a back injury and won't be risked a week out from finals.
With regular hooker Tony Ritchie on the sidelines as well, the Wagga side will put their depth to the test.
However coach Michael Davis is confident they can overcome the changes.
"We're pretty happy with the guys who are filling in for us," Davis said.
"They've been there for most of the year and will do a good job for us."
Hayden Roache and Rokoyaroi Rabaleilakeba come into the starting side.
Davis doesn't expect to have Ritchie back for the rest of the season after picking up a head knock in the tight loss to Tumut a fortnight ago.
As such Waratahs have also been working on a new approach to their line outs.
"Tony Ritchie is unlikely to play again this year unfortunately so he's a bit of a loss for us being our line out thrower," Davis said.
Gerard McTaggart and Harry Morrow will also be missing from the back line.
However Davis has retained most of the changes the side made last week in their 64-10 win over Griffith.
He hopes it continues to pay dividends.
"They did really well with how they went so we will keep with that," Davis said.
Josh Gemmell will come into halfback.
Davis is looking to head into a finals showdown with Wagga City next week on a positive note.
Especially with CSU coming off their win of the season.
Meanwhile finals bound Tumut will take on unbeaten Wagga City at Conolly Rugby Complex on Saturday.
It looked as though the Bulls would be playing for their season before Albury's withdrawal from the competition.
Now regardless of the result they will tackle Griffith in next week's elimination final.
The Blacks come into the finals series off the bye following losses to the two top teams.
