@ SFS Friday Night
WTG: Moltzen, Ryan, Ayshford, Lawrence, Utai, Marshall, Lui, Gibbs, Farah (c), Galloway, Fulton, Ellis, Heighington. Bench: McKinnon, Payten, Brown, Woods, Groat.
[Team Changes - The Tigers have made just one addition to their bench for the blockbuster with the Dragons at the SFS on Friday. Wade McKinnon is once again named to return from a rib injury and it will come down to him v Mitch Brown (who was not used v Manly) for the final bench spot. ]
STI: Boyd, Morris, Gasnier, Cooper, Nightingale, Soward, Hornby (c), Hunt, Fien, Weyman, Scott, Creagh, Prior. Bench: Green, Merrin, Cuthbertson, Young, Stanley, Rein.
[Team Changes - The Dragons bring Dean Young back onto the bench in their only change from the team that was run down by the Rabbitohs last Sunday. Kyle Stanley and Mitch Rein are the extra men on the bench and if Young plays they will probably miss out. ]
@ ANZ Friday Night
CBY: Barba, Turner, Morris, Idris, Wright, Roberts, Hodkinson, Tolman, Romelo, Kasiano, Pritchard, Ryan (c), Halatau. Bench: Eastwood, Armit, Payne, Reynolds.
[Team Changes - The Bulldogs have come to their senses and recalled Josh Morris at centre for Tim Lafai. Ben Roberts is named but picked up a thigh injury that could rule him out. Aiden Tolman's shoulder should be right with a needle said coach Jim Dymock on Tuesday. ]
NQL: Bowen, Graham, Tate. Tonga, Fai-Fai Loa, Thompson, Jones, Scott (c), Payne, A Sims, Cooper, T Sims, Johnson. Bench: Segeyaro, Hall, Paterson, Tamou.
[Team Changes - The Cowboys resisted naming Johnathan Thurston to return from injury and may do so until they are back at home just to be sure his knee is right. Kalifa Fai-Fai Loa has been named despite picking up a hammy strain last Saturday and will be monitored. Scott Bolton will continue to make his comeback from injury in the QLD Cup. ]
@ AAMI Saturday Night
MEL: Slater, Waqa, Nielsen, Champion, O'Neill, M Blair, Cronk, Bromwich, Smith (c), Norrie, A Blair, Proctor, Hinchcliffe. Bench: Rochow, Vea, Woolnough, Lowe.
[Team Changes - The Storm rested Sika Manu, Gareth Widdop and Matt Duffie last weekend (Rory Kostjasyn's knee kept him out) and could recall all three despite not naming them for the clash with Penrith. Keep in mind they played Monday Night and Craig Bellamy rarely names his proper team the next day (Tuesday) when that is the case. If all three come back then a number of Sisa Waqa, Beau Champion, Robert Rochow and Atelea Vea could make way. ]
PEN: Simmons, Walker, Jennings, Tighe, Purtell, Seijka, Walsh, Grant, Kingston, Civoniceva (c), Waterhouse, Plum, Lewis. Bench: Seluini, Smith, Bell, McKendry, Iosefa.
[Team Changes - The Panthers made a number of additions on the bench with hookers Nafe Seluini and Masada Iosefa named. Dayne Weston makes way. Luke Lewis has been named despite knocking himself out on Saturday night - so is no certainty. ]
@ Suncorp Saturday Night
BRI: Hoffman, Beale, Reed, Hodges, Yow Yeh, Lockyer (c), Wallace, Hannant, McCullough, Anderson, Glenn, Thaiday, Parker. Bench: Gillett, Hunt, Te'o, McGuire.
[Team Changes - The Broncos have regained Ben Te'o from a long term arm injury and he joins the bench at the expense of David Hala who goes back to the QLD Cup. Dane Carlaw is also back from injury in QLD Cup as well. Otherwise the Broncos are unchanged. ]
WAR: Locke, Tupou, Moon, Berrigan, Vatuvei, Maloney, Johnson, Packer, Heremaia, Lillyman, Mateo, Mannering (c), Luck. Bench: Godinet, Sam Rapira, Matulino, Taylor, Brown.
[Team Changes - The Warriors have named captain Simon Mannering despite the fact he left the field early with a knee injury against Canberra. Lewis Brown made his comeback in the NSW Cup last weekend and has been named as 18th man and is Mannering's probable replacement if the skipper can't play. There is still no sign of Lance Hohaia for the Warriors. ]
@ Toyota Saturday Night
CRO: Gordon, M Wright, Pomeroy, Leutele, Stapleton, Graham, Townsend, Cordoba, Morris, Douglas, Smith, Tautai, Gallen (c). Bench: Snowden, Tagataese, Aiton Tupou, Mannah, Gardner, Frizell.
[Team Changes - The Sharks might have pulled off the biggest selection shock of the round by dropping Nathan Gardner to the bench and naming Isaac Gordon at fullback. Colin Best was dropped and Matt Wright shifted to the wing for John Williams to allow Ben Pomeroy and Ricky Leutele to come in at centre. Paul Aiton is on the bench with Jon Mannah and last week's debutant Tyson Frizell. Oh and Paul Gallen is back. ]
GLD: Rankin, Michaels, Zillman, Peyroux, Mead, Henry, Prince (c), Bailey, Srama, White, Laffranchi, Minichiello, O'Dwyer. Bench: Lawrence, Matthews, Thompson, Campbell.
[Team Changes - The Titans lost another key backrower to injury with Greg Bird's chest injury ruling him out. Luke O'Dwyer goes to lock and Dom Peyroux goes to centre to take Clinton Toopi's spot. Steve Michaels returns on the wing, while Will Matthews is a new face on the bench. William Zillman is no certainty after a heart condition forced him from the field last Sunday. ]
@ AusGrid Sunday Afternoon
NEW: Gidley (c), McManus, Sa'u, MacDougall, Uate, Stig, Mullen, Tuimavave, De Gois, Kaufusi, Houston, Costigan, Edwards. Bench: Hilder, Fa'aoso, Ciraldo, Tetevano, Lulia.
[Team Changes - The Knights get Richie Fa'aoso back from a hammy strain and hope to finally have Evarn Tuimavave back from the same ailment. They will monitor the fitness of the pair plus Jarrod Mullen (arm), Kurt Gidley (hammy) and Ryan Stig (groin) during the week. ]
CAN: Dugan, Ferguson, Croker, Thompson, Vidot, McCrone, Williams, White, Tongue (c), Shillington, Papalii, Harrison, Fensom. Bench: Buttriss, Miller, Galea, Tilse, Picker, Mataora.
[Team Changes - Canberra are done for 2011 but have retained much the same side that went down 29-10 to the Warriors last Sunday. Josh Dugan has been named despite picking up a new ankle injury - as have Bronson Harrison and Jarrod Croker who were hurt as well. Joe Picker and Josh Miller join the squad, while David Shillington starts for Dane Tilse. ]
@ Brookvale Sunday Afternoon
MAN: B Stewart, Oldfield, Lyon (c), Matai, Hopoate, K Foran, Cherry-Evans, King (c), Ballin, Kite, Watmough, Galuvao, G Stewart. Bench: T Williams, Buhrer, Rodney, Rose, Mauro, Lussick.
[Team Changes - Manly have added Tony Williams to their bench but will still not have winger Michael Robertson who has concussion. Michael Oldfield is listed to play on the wing but Williams could start instead. Darcy Lussick is added to the bench once again. ]
SYD: Minichiello, Perrett, Leilua, Kenny-Dowall, Graham, T Carney, Pearce, Ryles, Friend, Waerea-Hargreaves, Anasta (c), Guerra, Myles. Bench: Mitchell, Masoe, Takairangi, Tasi.
[Team Changes - The Roosters keep Joseph Leilua at centre and Phil Graham on the wing after their efforts last Saturday. Lama Tasi was a late inclusion and along with Mose Masoe - they hold their spots. Tom Symonds is in NSW Cup. ]
@ ANZ Monday Night
SOU: Wesser, Merritt, Farrell, Inglis, McQueen, Sutton, Sandow, Ross, Luke, McPherson, Clark, Pettybourne, Crocker (c). Bench: L Burgess, Tyrrell, Lowe, Peats, Corrigan.
[Team Changes - The Bunnies get a huge boost with Dave Taylor back from a long suspension. He comes straight in and partners Eddy Pettybourne and Michael Crocker in a good backrow. One of Shaune Corrigan, Dave Tyrrell, Nathan Peats or Jason Clark will probably miss out to accommodate him. There is still no word on the return of Roy Asotasi from a wrist injury - but it was expected relatively soon. ]
PAR: Burt, Uaisele, Horo, Smith, Atkins, Hayne, Robson, Mannah, Keating, MoiMoi, Hindmarsh (c), Lasalo, Maitua. Bench: McGuire, Shackleton, Allgood, O'Hanlon.
[Team Changes - Jeff Robson lasted just 5 minutes against the Storm before a jaw injury and has been replaced at halfback by Casey McGuire. Jordan Atkins is also back on the wing for Chris Hicks. Manase Manuokafoa is the new face on the bench. As with Melbourne - they played Monday so the team could change considerably by the time they actually play. ]
