Round 14 NRL Teams
DRAGONS v TITANS
[Team Changes - The Dragons have Boyd, Gasnier, Soward, Merrin and Creagh on Origin duty, while Brett Morris and Matt Cooper are injured. As a result the new faces are Alex McKinnon at centre, Reece Simmonds on the wing, Jack Bosden and Michael Greenfield in the second row and David Gower, Daniel Penese and Jake Marketo on the bench. Jason Nightingale goes to fullback and Nathan Fien to five-eighth in the more significant positional changes. ]

[Team Changes - The Titans will miss Ashley Harrison and Greg Bird to Origin duty but get Anthony Laffranchi back from injury which is a huge boost.

Prop Brenton Lawrence is the new face on an extended bench, while Sam Tagataese is dropped. ]

WARRIORS v TIGERS
CAN: Massey, Stuart, Ferguson, Croker, Robinson, McCrone, Williams, Tilse, Tongue (c), White, Picker, Harrison, Fensom. Bench: Buttriss, Miller, Learoyd-Lahrs, Shillington, Papalii.
[Team Changes - Canberra lost Terry Campese, Joel Thompson and Josh Dugan to medium term injuries in the loss to the Cowboys. Although they get David Shillington back from injury, the team has been forced to move Blake Ferguson to the centres for Thompson, bring James Stuart onto the wing and pick young Nathan Massey at fullback. ]
STORM v ROOSTERS
[Team Changes - The Warriors lose Aaron Heremaia to a hand injury but replace him with Shaun Berrigan at hooker and get Lance Hohaia back from a rib injury on the bench. Sione Lousi is added to the bench with Steve Rapira unlikely to play due to a wrist injury. QLD Origin 2 18th man Jacob Lillyman will play, while Shaun Johnson gets another crack at the halfback job. ]
[Team Changes - The Tigers lost Lote Tuqiri as soon as they got him back as a leg injury ended his comeback on Monday after just 5 minutes and while Tuqiri has been named to play the Warriors don't expect him to play. Youngster Tim Simona may yet play again after a promising debut or Beau Ryan could find himself on the wing again if Wade McKinnon recovers from his hamstring strain in time. Alan Schirnack is the new face on the bench for the trip to Auckland, while Bryce Gibbs who was good off the bench against Newcastle starts for Aaron Woods. ]
MEL: O'Neill, Waqa, Champion, M Blair, Quinn, Widdop, Kostjasyn, Bromwich, Hinchcliffe, Norrie, A Blair (c), Proctor, Lowrie. Bench: Vea, Manu, Woolnough, Lowe.

SYD: Pritchard, Perrett, J Carney, Mataka, Leilua, Anasta (c), T Carney, Ryles, Friend, Nu'uausala, Symonds, Cordner, Guerra. Bench: Waerea-Hargreaves, Arona, Riddell, Takairangi.

Mark Riddell returns from the flu and Brad Takairangi gets another cup of coffee in First Grade on the bench. ]
