Luke O'Dwyer starts in the second row with Mark Minichiello on the bench (and unlikely to play due to an ankle injury) and Greg Bird out with an ankle injury of his own.

Bench: J Segeyaro, J Riethmuller, R Thorby, T Sims.
[Team Changes - With Tariq Sims a late starter in Round 5, Jason Taumalolo went back to NYC and he stays there. Scott Bolton returns from injury in the QLD Cup but at the moment Ricky Thorby and Joel Riethmuller hold their spots on the bench. ]

Bench: N Skinner, V Mauro, D Lussick, J Galuvao, D Whare.
[Team Changes - Manly have named Kieran Foran (Hammy) and Brett Stewart (Ribs) and get Jamie Lyon back from a elbow injury. Joe Galuvao and Steve Matai were late inclusions last week and are here again. Glenn Stewart might play but has not been named, just don't be shocked if he does given it is the Monday game. Dean Whare loses his spot with Lyon's return and Jorge Taufua holds his spot on the wing. ]

PEN: L Coote, E Uaisele, M Jennings, B Tighe, D Simmons T Burns, L Walsh, S McKendry, K Kingston, D Weston, C Newton, C Ciraldo, L Lewis (c).
Bench: D Galea, M Achurch, B Austin, R Simpkins, M Robinson.
[Team Changes - Tim Grant remains a week to week proposition with a calf injury. He could play given this is a Monday game - given the extra rest. Cameron Ciraldo's shoulder held up last week and he should play. Matt Robinson is 18th man once again. ]
THURSDAY GAME PREVIEW
Listen to the Podcast for a full preview, but we like the Sea Eagles. 
TIPPING AND FANTASY LATE MAIL
SMH and Other Late Mail - Manly might get Glenn Stewart back, while Kieran Foran is doubtful. The Panthers should be 1-17 with Matt Robinson as 18th man.
