Queensland young gun Jordan Petaia will return for the Super Rugby AU top-of-the-table clash with the Brumbies on Saturday night.

Queensland: Jock Campbell, Chris Feauai-Sautia, Hunter Paisaimi, Hamish Stewart, Filipo Daugunu, James O'Connor, Scott Malolua, Harry Wilson, Liam Wright, Angus Scott-Young, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Angus Blyth, Taniela Tupou, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, Dane Zander. Reserves: Alex Mafi, Feao Fotuaika, Jack Straker, Ryan Smith, Fraser McReight, Tate McDermott, Bryce Hegarty, Jordan Petaia.
