As released on Tuesday April 12 - each NRL Team for Round 6 is listed below.
ROUND 6 TIPPING PREVIEW OUT WEDNESDAY
ROUND 6 PODCAST THURSDAY 14 APRIL
EELS v BULLDOGS
PAR: Hayne, Burt, Reddy, Loko, Atkins, Mortimer, Robson, Mannah, McGuire, MoiMoi, Hindmarsh (c), Lasalo, Horo. Bench: Rogers, Shackleton, Allgood, Webb, Smith.
[Team Changes - Despite getting spanked by the Storm, Stephen Kearney has kept the faith with his team. Jacob Loko stays at centre and Jordan Atkins on the wing, while Ben Smith could miss out altogether after being named on an extended bench. Carl Webb and Casey McGuire are back, with Anthony Mitchell making way. ]
[Team Changes - No room for Sam Kasiano or Jake Foster after both were omitted late against the Dragons. Grant Millington comes onto the bench with Chris Armit and Michael Hodgson who replaced Foster and Kasiano. Jamal Idris has a corked thigh but has been named to play. ]
GLD: Capewell, Michaels, Tonga, Thompson, Mead, Zillman, Prince (c), Bailey, Friend, White, Bird, Minichiello, Harrison. Bench: Henderson, Tagataese, James, Ridge, O'Dwyer.
[Team Changes - Greg Bird will return from suspension but Ashley Harrison is no certainty with a hamstring strain. Anthony Laffranchi is out 6-8 weeks with an ankle injury. Luke Capewell keeps William Zillman at five-eighth, while Ben Ridge goes back to the bench as does Ryan James. ]
WTG: McKinnon, Ryan, Ayshford, Brown, Utai, Marshall, Moltzen, Gibbs, Farah (c), Payten, Dwyer, Ellis, Heighington. Bench: Miller, Fifita, A Schirnack, Woods.
SEA EAGLES v WARRIORS
[Team Changes - The return of Beau Ryan from a groin injury softens the loss of Geoff Daniela for the season with an arm injury. Keith Galloway is out with a groin injury so Todd Payten starts and Aaron Woods gets a recall from the Under 20s on the bench. Gareth Ellis was a late starter against the Bunnies and he's listed to start again here. ]
MAN: B Stewart, Robertson, Lyon (c), Matai, Hopoate, K Foran, Cherry-Evans, King (c), Ballin, Kite, Watmough, Galuvao, G Stewart. Bench: Seu Seu, Buhrer, Rose, Mauro, Robinson, Oldfield, T Williams.
WAR: Hohaia, Tupou, Berrigan, Mannering (c), Inu, Mateo, Maloney, Sam Rapira, Heremaia, Lillyman, Brown, Taylor, Luck. Bench: Latimore, Matulino, Ta'ai, Packer, Lousi.
[Team Changes - Brett Stewart has been named again but the listing of Michael Oldfield and Tony Williams on the bench again suggests he's no certainty. Anthony Watmough and Terence Seu Seu are included after having a week off to have a long hard look at themselves, while Daniel Harrison has been sent back to NSW Cup. ]
ROOSTERS v BRONCOS
[Team Changes - Lance Hohaia starts for the injured Glen Fisiiahi, while Elijah Taylor keeps his starting spot in the second row. Russell Packer and Sione Lousi join an extended bench. ]
[Team Changes - Jason Ryles starts for Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Mark Riddell and Tom Symonds rejoin the bench at the expense of Phil Graham. ]
BRI: Beale, Reed, Te'o, Hodges, Yow Yeh, Lockyer (c), Wallace, Hannant, McCullough, Thaiday, Glenn, Gillett, Parker. Bench: Dodds, Carlaw, Kenny, Norman.
COWBOYS v RAIDERS
[Team Changes - There is some doubt over Mitchell Dodds who got KO'd against the Knights but everyone else should retain their spots. Josh McGuire or Shane Tronc would be the most likely replacement for Dodds. Josh Hoffman is another week away according to the Broncos. ]
@ Dairy Farmers Saturday Night
NQL: Bowen, Graham, Winterstein, Tonga, Fai-Fai Loa, Thompson, Thurston (c), Scott (c), Payne, A Sims, Bolton, Hall, Johnson. Bench: Segeyaro, L Ah Mau, T Sims, Thorby, I Ah Mau.
[Team Changes - The leadership group suspended James Tamou and Blake Leary for an off-field indiscretion during the week and they will miss this round. Ashton Sims and Scott Bolton start with Gavin Cooper suspended for a lifting tackle for Round 6. Isaak Ah Mau and Ricky Thorby are the new faces on the bench, while Antonio Winterstein keeps his spot ahead of Will Tupou. ]
CAN: Ferguson, Robinson, Croker, Thompson, Vidot, McCrone, Williams, Learoyd-Lahrs, Buttriss, Shillington (c), Thurling, Harrison (c), Fensom. Bench: Waddell, Miller, Galea, White.
[Team Changes - Matt Orford carried a back injury into the Penrith game and having Petero Civoniceva knee him in the back during the game didn't hlep... and now Orford has been ruled out by the medial staff. So no he hasn't been dropped. Sam Williams comes in at halfback. Glen Buttriss starts for Travis Waddell and Joel Thompson returns in the centres for James Stuart. ]
KNIGHTS v SHARKS
NEW: W Naiqama, McManus, Sa'u, MacDougall, Uate, Gidley (c), Mullen, Kaufusi, Hilder, Tuimavave, Paterson *suspended*, Houston, Edwards. Bench: De Gois, Mika, Fa'aoso, Tolar, Karawana.
[Team Changes - Cory Paterson will not play after taking a week off for kneeing in the Brisbane game, while Isaac De Gois has an arm injury that will likely see him miss this match and possibly longer. Given the Knights played Monday Night - expect their team to be confirmed later in the week as Wes Naiqama and Dan Tolar are also carrying injuries. ]
CRO: Gardner, M Wright, Pomeroy, Best, Williams, Kelly, Graham, Snowden, Aiton, Douglas, Smith, Tupou, Gallen (c). Bench: Cordoba, B Wright, Flanagan, Collis, Mannah.
PANTHERS v STORM
[Team Changes - No changes whatsoever for the Sharks. Dean Collis remains listed on the bench but has yet to feature since Round 1. ]
RABBITOHS v DRAGONS
PEN: M Gordon, Earl, Jennings, Tighe, Simmons, Burns, Walsh, Grant, Kingston, Civoniceva (c), Waterhouse, Plum, Fatiaki. Bench: Seluini, Bell, Tahu, McKendry.
[Team Changes - Prop Sam McKendry was a late starter against Canberra and is listed on the bench here. There is no sign of Lachlan Coote either in an unchanged team. Luke Walsh remains in doubt with a shoulder injury however. ]
MEL: Slater, Duffie, Nielsen, Champion, Quinn, Widdop, Cronk, Bromwich, Smith (c), Norrie, Blair, Proctor, Lowrie. Bench: Hinchcliffe, Vea, Woolnough, Lowe, O'Neill.
[Team Changes - Anthony Quinn holds his wing spot ahead of Justin O'Neill who is listed on an extended bench with Jaiman Lowe. Jesse Bromwich gets a chance to start for the injured Troy Thompson. ]
SOU: Wesser, Merritt, Farrell, Inglis, Talanoa, Sutton, Sandow, Asotasi (c), Luke, S Burgess, Taylor, Tyrrell, Crocker. Bench: Ross, McPherson, McQueen, Peats.
[Team Changes - Sam Burgess moves to the front row with news that Luke Stuart will miss the season with a knee injury. Nathan Peats is the new man in the 17 that lost to the Tigers on Friday Night, with Michael Crocker starting at lock and Dave Tyrrell in the second row. ]

]-[ ]-[ ]-[
[Team Changes - There is some doubt over skipper Ben Hornby with a few niggles and if he is out expect Nathan Fien to start at halfback and Dean Young to start at hooker. But this is the same 17 that beat the Bulldogs on Sunday at the SCG. ]
