FORMER Australian teammates Shane Watson and Mike Hussey will be the old heads in two new-look line-ups in the Ryobi Cup clash between NSW and WA at the SCG today.

Watson is one of five changes to the Blues' team that lost to Queensland in early December.

He replaces the injured Moises Henriques, while Josh Hazlewood, Gurinder Sandhu, David Dawson and Trent Copeland come into the side for Sean Abbott, Josh Lalor, Nic Maddinson and Adam Zampa.

The Warriors have also made five changes to the team that lost to Tasmania last time out with Hussey, Liam Davis, Australian under-19 teammates Ashton Agar and Joel Paris, as well as John Rogers, set to make their one-day debuts.

Marcus North, Travis Birt, Nathan Rimmington and Tom Triffitt have all been axed, while Michael Beer is injured.
