Mortlock, who has overcome a calf strain, and Campbell will retire at the end of the season, while Huxley is moving to Narbonne in France.

The Rebels, who have also seen former England international Michael Lipman quit the sport, will be boosted by the return of James O'Connor and Kurtley Beale for the clash.
