Northern Suburbs’ flanker AJ Gilbert will make his NSW debut in Perth tomorrow (Sunday) after replacing Pat McCutcheon in the starting lineup.

McCutcheon suffered a knock to the knee last weekend and has not been able to recover as quickly as expected.
 
His absence paves the way for another first-time captain, Tom Carter, to lead the team.  The centre has represented his state 82 times since 2004 and will now make his captaincy debut against the Force in Perth tomorrow afternoon.
 
The HSBC Waratahs v Force match kicks off at 4.05pm AEST tomorrow, June 9 at nib Stadium in Perth.  NSW fans can follow all the action live on FOX SPORTS or keep up to date with every score live on Twitter @NSWWaratahs or by searching #FORvWAR
