ROUND 10 TIPPING PREVIEW OUT WEDNESDAY
NOT The Footy Show Episode 61 - May 12, 2011.NSW BLUES Team Special Episode 60 - May 7, 2011.
BULLDOGS v DRAGONS
CBY: Barba, Turner, Morris, Idris, Lett, Keating, Hodkinson, Tolman, Ennis, Paea, Pritchard, Ryan (c), Stagg. Bench: Eastwood, Foster, Payne, Halatau.
[Team Changes - Grant Millington has been replaced by Jake Foster in the only change from Round 8. Jamal Idris is in some doubt with a wrist injury, while Michael Ennis has a rib problem. ]
[Team Changes - The team named is unlikely to resemble the team that plays on Friday Night. Despite Darius Boyd returning at fullback, Kyle Stanley seems long odds to play after his ankle was in a bucket of ice late in the game last Sunday and despite not being named due to his own ankle injury - Mark Gasnier might in fact play. Jason Nightingale, Jamie Soward and Jon Green return to the team after being injured/rested last weekend. Ben Creagh has an ankle injury of his own but has been named. Jack Bosden and Mitch Rein are on the bench again this week - there is no sign of Nathan Fien. ]
PANTHERS v BRONCOS
PEN: M Gordon, Simmons, Tahu, Tighe, Purtell, Burns, Walsh, Grant, Kingston, Civoniceva (c), Waterhouse, Plum, Lewis. Bench: Seluini, McKendry, Weston, Smith, Y Gordon.
[Team Changes - The return of Luke Lewis from a wrist injury is a big boost but the continued absence of Lachlan Coote with a groin injury is a real concern - he has been named to play NSW Cup but he is no certainty. Adrian Purtell goes onto the wing and Brad Tighe goes back to the centres with the omission of Michael Jennings due to a knee injury. Sarafu Fatiaki makes way for Lewis at lock, while Matthew Bell is omitted and Dayne Weston and Nathan Smith join the bench. ]
BRI: Beale, Copley, Reed, Hodges, Yow Yeh, Lockyer (c), Wallace, Hannant, McCullough, Kenny, Glenn, Thaiday, Parker (c). Bench: Norman, Anderson, Dodds, Hala.
STORM v RAIDERS
[Team Changes - The Broncos bring back Justin Hodges, Ben Hannant, Sam Thaiday and Darren Lockyer from their rep enforced break. There is still no Josh Hoffman despite his return being tipped a fortnight ago. Nick Kenny starts at prop with Sam Thaiday back into the second row. Dane Carlaw has been demoted to the QLD Cup. ]
MEL: Slater, Duffie, Nielsen, Blair, Quinn, Widdop, Cronk, Bromwich, Smith (c), Norrie, Blair, Proctor, Lowrie. Bench: Hinchcliffe, Vea, Woolnough, Lowe, Kostjasyn.
[Team Changes - All the rep stars pulled up well from backing up and are named to face the Raiders. Beau Champion dislocated his shoulder in the City-Country game and is out 4-6 weeks with Maurice Blair retained in his centre spot. Todd Lowrie is back at lock forward. ]
CAN: Dugan, Ferguson, Croker, Thompson, Robinson, McCrone, Orford, Tilse, Tongue (c), White, Galea, Harrison, Fensom. Bench: Buttriss, Miller, Mataora, Thurling.
RABBITOHS v TIGERS
[Team Changes - Canberra have obviously not learnt from the past 8 weeks of insipid football and have retained 16 of the 17 players who were dusted 20-0 by Manly on Monday Night. Late scratching Josh Dugan is named to return at the expense of rookie Nathan Massey. Daniel Vidot has been kept out of the side for the second straight week after Reece Robinson's 7 hitup for 43 metre performance v Manly. David Furner will no doubt go back to old faithful (the grind) to get a win and Canberra will be 1-9 after 10 Rounds. ]
SOU: Wesser, Merritt, Farrell, Corrigan, Roberts, Sutton, Sandow, Ross, Luke, McPherson, Taylor, Tyrrell, Crocker (c). Bench: Pettybourne, Clark, McQueen, Peats.
WTG: McKinnon, Brown, Ayshford, Moltzen, Utai, Marshall, Lui, Fifita, Farah (c), Galloway, Dwyer, Fulton, Heighington. Bench: Ryan, Murdoch-Masila, A Schirnack, Woods.
[Team Changes - The Bunnies are bleeding badly... Greg Inglis and Roy Asotasi have joined the injured list with Rhys Wesser and Shaun Corrigan coming into the 17 for them. Shannan McPherson starts at prop, Chris McQueen goes from the wing to a bench forward role and Michael Crocker is the skipper. ]
COWBOYS v EELS
[Team Changes - There is no Bryce Gibbs for this one with an ankle injury keeping him out. Gareth Ellis also failed to be named with a similar injury. Beau Ryan stays on the bench as cover for Wade McKinnon's dodgy hamstrings. ]
NQL: Bowen, Graham, Winterstein, Tonga, Fai-Fai Loa, Thompson, Thurston (c), Scott (c), Payne, Tamou, Cooper, Hall, Johnson. Bench: Bolton, L Ah Mau, T Sims, A Sims, Segeyaro.
[Team Changes - Jarryd Hayne returns from suspension at fullback with Etu Uaisele making way. Ben Smith continues to start at lock for Justin Horo who is on the bench. ]
PAR: Hayne, Burt, Reddy, Loko, Atkins, Mortimer, Robson, Mannah, McGuire, MoiMoi, Hindmarsh (c), Lasalo, Smith. Bench: Rogers, Shackleton, Allgood, Horo.
KNIGHTS v WARRIORS
WAR: Locke, Inu, Brown, Mannering (c), Vatuvei, Maloney, Seymour, Packer, Heremaia, Lillyman, Mateo, Taylor, Luck. Bench: Hohaia, Latimore, Mara, Matulino, Ta'ai.
[Team Changes - Kurt Gidley will not play and Tyrone Roberts is named at five-eighth. Neville Costigan returns from a broken arm and Cory Paterson goes to the bench. Isaac De Gois and Mark Taufua join the bench as they return from injury. ]
SHARKS v ROOSTERS
[Team Changes - Lance Hohaia was been demoted from Test fullback to bench player in the space of two days and continues in that role for this game with Kevin Locke staying at fullback. Manu Vatuvei also returned last weekend with a stormer on the wing. Aaron Heremaia is back at hooker with Alahana Mara moving back to an extended bench. ]
CRO: Gordon, M Wright, Pomeroy, Best, Mills, Graham, T Smith, Snowden, Aiton, Douglas, J Smith, Tupou, Gallen (c). Bench: Cordoba, B Wright, Flanagan, Bukuya, Tautai, Vave.
[Team Changes - The return of Nathan Gardner was short lived with his ankle injury keeping him out despite the Sharks having the bye last weekend. Isaac Gordon starts at fullback with Stewart Mills on the wing for the injured John Williams. Taulima Tautai and Siosaia Vave are extras on the bench. It was revealed on Wednesday that Jeremy Smith hurt his knee in the ANZAC Test and will miss 2-4 weeks, expect Jayson Bukuya to start. ]
SYD: Minichiello, Naughton, Linnett, Kenny-Dowall, Leilua, Carney, Pearce, Waerea-Hargreaves, Friend, Myles, Aubusson, Anasta (c), Nu'uausala, Myles. Bench: Tasi, Masoe, Riddell, Symonds, Arona.
TITANS v SEA EAGLES
[Team Changes - The loss of Martin Kennedy is a big one but Brian Smith gets Todd Carney back which is a far bigger boost. Steve Naughton and Kane Linnett come in for Phil Graham with Mitchell Aubusson quite rightly moved back into the forwards. Tom Symonds goes back to the bench. Braith Anasta is in the second row and Nate Myles is at prop. ]
GLD: Campbell, Michaels, Tonga, Thompson, Mead, Zillman, Prince (c), Bailey, Brown, White, Bird, Minichiello, Harrison. Bench: Henderson, James, Ridge, O'Dwyer, Lawton.
MAN: B Stewart, Robertson, Lyon (c), Matai, Hopoate, K Foran, Cherry-Evans, King (c), Ballin, Kite, Watmough, Galuvao, G Stewart. Bench: Mauro, Buhrer, Rose, T Williams, Robinson.
[Team Changes - Brett Stewart made a successful return from injury but wasn't 100% due to a tight hamstring... he still scored 3 tries so he didn't struggle too much! Joe Galuvao starts for Jamie Buhrer and Jason King has been named to return from a rib injury that made him miss the clash with Canberra. ]
