Benji Marshall will again fill the Brisbane five-eighth spot vacated by Anthony Milford for Saturday's NRL clash against Sydney Roosters.

Milford has failed to recover from a head knock suffered in Queensland's State of Origin I loss to NSW in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

Veteran playmaker Marshall returned from a wrist injury against the Warriors last week for his second game of the season with Milford in Origin camp

Utility Kodi Nikorima was out of the selection frame due to a shoulder injury from the 28-10 loss in Auckland.

Milford's Maroons teammates Matt Gillett, Darius Boyd, Sam Thaiday and Corey Oates will line up for the Broncos at Allianz Stadium.

Earlier, Mitchell Pearce was ruled out of the Roosters' clash with Brisbane due to concussion, coach Trent Robinson confirmed.

Pearce left the field early in the second half in NSW's State of Origin win after being knocked out by Queensland centre Will Chambers.

"The doctor assessed him last night and he won't be playing. He'll have to go through the concussion protocol but the symptoms are there," Robinson said on Friday.
