Josh McGuire will start in an unusual jersey number against the Rabbitohs at Suncorp stadium this Friday night.

The young front rower has been rewarded for his recent strong form with the lock position normally held by Corey Parker.

Parker was not named by coach Anthony Griffin today and is racing the clock to play at Suncorp Stadium on Friday after suffering a nasty gash to his leg in last week's Origin game.

Petero Civoniceva will return from Origin duty to play his 300th NRL game, with Justin Hodges also slotting back into the side after being rested against the Cowboys.

Sam Thaiday will assume the captaincy and second row spot after missing both Origin and last week's NRL match with a shoulder injury.

An extended bench including Mitchell Dodds has been named.

Broncos team to play the South Sydney Rabbitohs, friday at 7.30pm:

1 Josh Hoffman
2 Gerard Beale
3 Jack Reed
4 Justin Hodges
5 Dale Copley
6 Corey Norman
7 Peter Wallace
8 Ben Hannant
9 Andrew McCullough
10 Petero Civoniceva
11 Alex Glenn
12 Sam Thaiday [c]
13 Josh McGuire

14 Ben Hunt
15 Ben Te'o
16 Matt Gillett
