NSW has named a full-strength side to take on Queensland in Friday's Buildcorp Super W final.

Scrumhalf Katrina Barker comes into the 23 for the first time since round two, the first of a number of tweaks to the team.

Kennedy Cherrington will be in the centres, teaming up with Crystal Maguire, while Cobie-Jane Morgan will start at nine.

NSW coach Rob Baumann said on Tuesday his side was prepared for a huge test against Queensland.

"They’re a solid outfit and we certainly aren’t taking them lightly," he said.

"We may have come away with the win up there (in round one), but I think they’ve improved week in, week out. They’ve got a slightly different team we came up against in the first round and they are a solid outfit."

NSW hosts Queensland in the inaugural Super W final on Friday at Allianz Stadium, kicking off at 4:45pm AEST, LIVE on FOX SPORTS. Adults who buy a ticket before 5pm at the ground will pay $15 for entry to the Super W and Super Rugby matches. Registered juniors receive free entry, upon presentation of their juniors card.
