Anthony Griffin has re-shuffled his backline as the NRMA Insurance Broncos fight for their season against Penrith on Friday night.

The Broncos face the Panthers needing a victory to qualify for next week's NRL finals.

And the return of Dale Copley from a fractured leg allows him to make some changes.

Josh Hoffman will again be at fullback after a couple of games on thw wing.

Corey Norman reclaims his five-eighth position, with Ben Hunt moving to the bench where he will play a back-up role.

In another change, Petero Civoniceva will start his final home game for the Broncos at front row.

He played off the bench against the Sea Eagles last week.

However Sam Thaiday drops back to second row for Ben Te'o (bench) allowing Civoniceva his number 10 jersey.

Luke Capewell is out of the team.
