Alec Wright's return from a pre-season shoulder injury headlines Launceston's inclusions for Saturday's trip to North Hobart.
The former Tassie Mariner was named at centre half forward for the Blues, with Grant Holt also returning to replace Luke Walsh and teenage speedster Isaac Chugg.
Blues coach Mitch Thorp was happy to have Wright back in the 22.
"He's a key position player that's played three seasons of TSL footy and he just straightens us up a little bit with his height and agility, and Grant Holt will come back into the side after being a late withdrawal," Thorp said.
"He's one of our young talented players that we're really keen to get games into ... week on week we're starting to get our most experienced side we can back out on the park which is exciting."

The Demons have made a near identical start to the Blues, challenging Lauderdale and Glenorchy before falling away late in both games.
Coach Richard Robinson highlighted the importance of stopping the Blues' in-form captain but backed his charges to win at home.
"We're not far off - I think it's pretty evident we've been competitive in both games," Robinson said.
"It really has been a good week on the track, you can just tell there's a bit of a look and a steeliness in their eyes - they're really determined not to just have good efforts but to get four points.
"Jobi Harper's going to be one were going to have to watch - particularly on a small ground like North Hobart where centre clearances are so important - so we'll put some work into him."
North Hobart is unchanged.
Elsewhere, Glenorchy stars Daniel Joseph and Clinton French will both miss Saturday's away clash with Clarence.
Joseph, who was also a late withdrawal in round one, will be replaced by Connor Salter and Riley Oakley.
The Roos made just one change, while Lauderdale recalled Ben McGuinness, Robbie McManus and Mitch Anderton for its clash with Kingborough.
