NOT The Footy Show Podcast Episode 65 - June 2, 2011.

@ Parramatta Friday Night
PAR: Hayne, Burt, Morgan, Loko, Atkins, McGuire, Robson, Mannah, Keating, MoiMoi, Hindmarsh (c), Lasalo, Smith. Bench: Shackleton, Allgood, Webb, Horo.
[Team Changes - The Eels bring back Jacob Loko after giving him a break against the Knights for veteran Chris Walker who is demoted to the NSW Cup. Ryan Morgan keeps his spot in the centres after being a late replacement and Anthony Mitchell makes way for Carl Webb on the bench. ]
STI: Boyd, Tagive, Gasnier, Cooper, Nightingale, Soward, Hornby (c), Hunt, Young, Weyman, Scott, Creagh, Prior. Bench: Green, Fien, Cuthbertson, Merrin, Bosden, Rein.
[Team Changes - The Dragons lost Brett Morris at halftime to a hammy injury against the Tigers and despite being named - Matt Cooper - is long odds to play after suffering eye socket and hand injuries during the game. Matt Prior or Beau Scott would move to the centres if Cooper is out. Peni Tagive comes in on the wing for Morris as youngster Kyle Stanley has a hamstring injury. Dean Young will start at hooker and Mitch Rein is likely to miss out once the bench is cut down, as will Jack Bosden. ]

@ Toyota Friday Night
CRO: Gordon, M Wright, Pomeroy, Best, Mills, Graham, Porter, Snowden, Morris, Tautai, Bukuya, Tupou, Gallen (c). Bench: Vave, Mannah, Flanagan, B Wright, Frizell.
[Team Changes - The ironman streak of Luke Douglas is over at 133 due to a knee injury and Taulima Tautai has been named at prop in his place. Still no Nathan Gardner or Jeremy Smith for the Sharks. Tyson Frizell has once again been added to the bench with Josh Cordoba suffering a hamstring injury last weekend. ]
BRI: Hoffman, Copley, Reed, Beale, Yow Yeh, Lockyer (c), Wallace, Hannant, McCullough, Anderson, Glenn, Thaiday, Parker (c). Bench: Baptiste, Carlaw, Dodds, Hala.
[Team Changes - The Broncos have brought Darren Lockyer and Sam Thaiday back from their post-Origin 1 rest and Josh Hoffman also returns at fullback. Gerard Beale moves into the centres and Dane Gagai miss out. Nick Kenny is out with a shoulder injury and Dane Carlaw joins the bench with Scott Anderson starting. ]

@ Skilled Saturday Night
GLD: Campbell, Michaels, Tonga, Thompson, Mead, Zillman, Prince (c), Bailey, Srama, Henderson, Bird, Minichiello, Harrison. Bench: White, James, Tagataese, O'Dwyer, Ridge, Toopi.
[Team Changes - There are doubts over William Zillman and Steven Michaels after both left last week's games with head knocks. Ashley Harrison should return after failing to backup from Origin 1 with a shoulder injury and Greg Bird will start. Matt Srama keeps the hooking job ahead of Riley Brown after an impressive debut. Clinton Toopi is the new face on an extended bench. ]
PEN: Coote, Simmons, Jennings, Tighe, Purtell, Burns, Walsh, McKendry, Kingston, Civoniceva (c), Waterhouse, Smith, Lewis. Bench: Grant, Bell, Fatiaki, Weston, Iosefa.
[Team Changes - The Panthers have kept faith with the same starting squad that beat the Rabbitohs on Monday Night and have added Dayne Weston as an extra player on the bench. ]

@ ANZ Saturday Night
CBY: Barba, Turner, Morris, Idris, Goodwin, Keating, Reynolds, Ryan (c), Ennis, Kasiano, Pritchard, Foster, Stagg. Bench: Eastwood, Payne, Halatau, Hodgson.
[Team Changes - With Trent Hodkinson out for two weeks for a late shot, Josh Reynolds gets his 2nd chance in first grade but this time at his favoured position of halfback. There are doubts over David Stagg and Greg Eastwood however so there may be more changes. ]
MAN: B Stewart, D Williams, Lyon (c), Matai, Hopoate, K Foran, Cherry-Evans, King (c), Ballin, Rose, Watmough, Galuvao, G Stewart. Bench: Mauro, Buhrer, Robinson, T Williams, Lussick.
[Team Changes - Brent Kite is out with rib damage, while Jason King and George Rose have ankle and calf injuries that have them in doubt. Darcy Lussick joins the bench, while Michael Robertson is not available due to a knee injury. ]

@ SFS Saturday Night
SYD: Minichiello, Pritchard, J Carney, Kenny-Dowall, Leilua, T Carney, Pearce, Ryles, Friend, Myles, Anasta (c), Nu'uausala, Guerra. Bench: Waerea-Hargreaves, Arona, Riddell, Symonds, Cordner.
[Team Changes - The Roosters have named former Tigers lower grader Rhys Pritchard on the wing to replace Steve Naughton who broke his collarbone. Where Phil Graham is is anyone's guess - assume he's injured. Jason Ryles starts with Jared Waerea-Hargeaves on the bench. Body Cordner is another new face - the gun youngster has had to overcome a knee reconstruction to get this chance and Mose Masoe makes way. ]
WAR: Locke, Inu, Brown, Mannering (c), Vatuvei, Maloney, Seymour, Packer, Heremaia, Lillyman, Mateo, Taylor, Luck. Bench: Berrigan, Latimore, Matulino, Steve Rapira.
[Team Changes - There is a whisper that Brett Seymour won't play with an eye socket injury and that Shaun Johnson will come in - but the team named does not reflect this and there is no Lance Hohaia. Lewis Brown is named at centre again with Shaun Berrigan on the bench, while Ukuma Ta'ai has a knee injury and Steve Rapira makes his first appearance on the bench. ]

@ Canberra Sunday Afternoon
CAN: Dugan, Ferguson, Croker, Thompson, Robinson, McCrone, Williams, Tilse, Tongue (c), White, Picker, Harrison, Fensom. Bench: Buttriss, Miller, Papalii, Learoyd-Lahrs.
[Team Changes - Canberra resisted naming Terry Campese for his return from a knee reconstruction but they'll make a final decision on game day. For the time being Josh McCrone and Sam Williams are the starting halves. Matt Orford was struck down with a virus this week and was not considered. Joe Picker and Tom Learoyd-Lahrs will play with Sam Mataora out with a finger injury. Josh Dugan replaces Nathan Massey at fullback. ]
NQL: Bowen, Graham, Winterstein, Cooper, Fai-Fai Loa, Thompson, Thurston (c), Scott (c), Payne, Tamou, T Sims, Hall, Johnson. Bench: Segeyaro, Bolton, L Ah Mau, A Sims.
[Team Changes - The loss of Willie Tonga has been covered with Gavin Cooper shifting to the centres and Tariq Sims starting in the second row. Will Tupou may travel to Canberra as the 18th man but this is the same team that beat the Roosters on Saturday. ]

@ ANZ Sunday Afternoon
SOU: Wesser, Merritt, Corrigan, Inglis, Roberts, Sutton, Sandow, Ross, Luke, McPherson, McQueen, Taylor, Crocker (c). Bench: Pettybourne, Tyrrell, Clark, Peats.
[Team Changes - The Bunnies may have Greg Inglis back from a hip injury but lost Dylan Farrell to a leg injury in the loss to Penrith. Issac Luke limped off late in that match but has been named. Jason Clark comes in on the bench for Deon Apps, while Chris McQueen starts for Dave Tyrrell. ]
MEL: Slater, Waqa, Nielsen, M Blair, Duffie, Widdop, Cronk, Bromwich, Smith (c), Norrie, A Blair, Proctor, Lowrie. Bench: Hinchcliffe, Manu, Woolnough, Lowe.
[Team Changes - Sisa Waqa holds his spot on the wing with Anthony Quinn's back still not right. Otherwise there are no changes at all to the Storm team that beat Cronulla. ]

@ Leichhardt Monday Night
WTG: McKinnon, Tuqiri, Ayshford, Moltzen, Brown, Marshall, Lui, Woods, Farah (c), Galloway, Dwyer, Ellis, Heighington. Bench: Ryan, Fulton, Gibbs, Fifita.
[Team Changes - This may well be the strongest team the Tigers have had in two months. Only Chris Lawrence, Todd Payten and the newly injury Matt Utai could force their way into this side - and getting Lote Tuqiri, Gareth Ellis and Wade McKinnon back is a huge boost. Aaron Woods also starts ahead of Bryce Gibbs is is on the bench with Liam Fulton. ]
NEW: W Naiqama, McManus, Sa'u, Lulia, Uate, Henry, Gidley (c), Fa'aoso, Hilder, Tuimavave, Houston, Costigan, Edwards. Bench: De Gois, Kaufusi, Ciraldo, Tolar.
[Team Changes - The loss of Jarrod Mullen (possibly for the season) to a pectoral injury sees Kurt Gidley go to halfback and Wes Naiqama shift to fullback. Junior Sa'u has been named to return from an ankle injury and Keith Lulia is his centre partner. ]
