2013 NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE INJURED LIST
By W D Nicolson 

Welcome to the third season of the most comprehensive and up to date NRL Injury and Suspension List available on the internet.

We have once again sourced together a pre-season Injured List and will update it throughout the 2013 NRL Premiership.


With the season under-way - if you can help us with any injuries that should be listed - just emailtweet us or comment below.

The NRL Injured List is updated regularly - so bookmark this page and do yourself a big favour for the rest of the season.

Our sources are Official NRL Club Sites (links available below for their official injury list), mainstream media (including the outstanding Late Mail in the Sydney Morning Herald) and most importantly - our weekly game observations - which set this list apart from anything else you can find.

The Injured/Suspended List for each team is split into two Categories: 

DOUBTS
Means a player could play this coming Round but don't be shocked if they don't  due to a niggling injury or recently diagnosed 'short term' injury.
OUT
Means a player is extremely unlikely to play this week or next week due to long term injury/suspension, but beware players sometimes do return out of nowhere. We have added ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival - back in First Grade) for 2013 but please it is a GUIDE, not an iron clad date of return.

NOTE: Players who are listed as 'DOUBTS' may have actually played the previous round but if they are still thought to be carrying an injury they will remain on the DOUBT list.


This Injury List will be updated regularly during each week of the season, making it an invaluable Fantasy and Tipping Tool alongside our Weekly NRL Previews once again.

Remember if you want game-specific Late Mail every week, then check out our Round Previews Every Wednesday and they are updated with all the very latest Late Mail on Friday.

NRL INJURED LIST - FINALS WEEK 4:
We will not be updating team injury lists on this page anymore - check out the Team Analysis Article every Tuesday during the Finals for Injury Information.
Remember all updates past Wednesday night go into the Round's Late Mail on the front page of www.wdnicolson.com

Remember this is a guide, while we don't publish hearsay and unfounded rumours, not every player listed will definitely miss a game (or play) just because he is listed here.

 # Team ChangesBarba is named on the bench but may well start with Tim Lafai dropping out of the squad to accommodate the return of Greg Eastwood who the team physio admitted was chomping at the bit to play.

Eastwood may play off the bench with Finucane starting at lock.
 + Injured List: B Barba (Ankle - Likely), Sam Kasiano (Ankle - Likely), Greg Eastwood (Knee - Likely).

Bench: I De Gois, C Heighington, B Gibbs, A Tupou, B Ross.
 # Team Changes: The Sharks lose Carney to his hamstring strain - he was a passenger late in the win over the Cowboys so even if they beat Manly - he may not be fit for the Bunnies in two weeks time. Lewis goes to five-eighth though he may split time with Graham in the halves. Bukuya starts in the second row and Gibbs joins the bench with Ross 18th man. Fifita has a knee problem and is no certainty at this stage.

Bench: D Taylor, L Bailey, J Dowling, M Srama, M Ioane.
[Team Changes: Myles is next to no chance after damaging ankle ligaments against the Roosters last weekend - but the Titans have named him anyway. Ioane comes onto the bench as cover. Kelly aggravated his sternum injury but will play with the game being a knockout match and Atkins and Michaels hold their spots with Gordon at fullback again. ]

MAN: B Stewart, J Taufua, J Lyon (c), S Matai, D Williams, K Foran, D Cherry-Evans, B Lawrence, M Ballin, B Kite, A Watmough, J Horo, G Stewart.

 + Injured List: A Watmough (Knee - Likely), D Williams (Back - Likely), B Kite (Arm - Likely), S Matai (Hand - Likely), T Symonds (Thumb - Likely), B Lawrence (Back - Likely), J Buhrer (Ribs - Likely), R Fa'aoso (Head - Likely), B Stewart (Hamstring - Unlikely).

Bench: J Ryles, T Harris, J McLean, K Bromwich, B Finch.
 # Team ChangesThe Storm stick with Widdop at five-eighth with Finch named as 18th man but unlikely to play - even if he overcomes his sternum injury. It looks like Waqa will be given until later in the week to get the all clear but the signs are good he's not seriously hurt after his nasty fall against Souths.
 + Injured List: S Waqa (Neck - Likely), G Widdop (Hip - Likely), B Finch (Sternum - Unlikely), M Blair (Neck - Likely)  J Ryles (Knee - Likely), K Proctor (Knee - Likely), L Setu (Calf - Unlikely), J Sa'u (Foot - Unlikely), J Moors (Knee - Likely in NSW Cup).

Bench: M Hilder, C Houston, N Costigan, A McKinnon.
 # Team Changes: No changes for the Knights. They may add Adam Cuthbertson and Craig Gower to the travelling team for the trip to Melbourne but they may not force their way into the team. McManus should be okay after a head knock early against the Bulldogs. Mullen's ankle is still an issue but he'll play.
 + Injured List: J McManus (Head - Likely), J Smith (Sternum - Likely), B Scott (Foot - Likely), D Buderus (Back - Likely), J Mullen (Ankle/Knee - Likely), D Fa'alogo (Knee - Likely), A Cuthbertson (Neck - Unlikely), C Gower (Neck - Unlikely).

Bench: A McKinnon, C Houston, N Costigan, D Fa'alogo.
[Team Changes: Gidley's foot injury ends his season so Roberts comes back in at halfback and it sounds like Hilder may be added to the bench as cover for Buderus despite not being named. McKinnon back to the bench with Smith named at lock - but the veteran lock is no certainty. ]

Hodges is expected to play significant time at hooker like he did last week, with Kostjasyn playing in a lock forward role when he returns to the field in the 2nd half.

Bench: L Keary, J Lima, J Clark, G Burgess.
 # Team Changes: Same 17 as the team that got beaten by the Roosters last Friday but coach Michael Maguire says he hasn't settled on his final squad, so there may be more players added to the team later in the week. Inglis will definitely play, while Goodwin is expected to play despite an ankle injury. Veterans Crocker and Champion remain out of first grade but Champion may play NSW Cup.
 + Injured List: G Inglis (Knee - Likely), B Goodwin (Ankle - Likely), J Sutton (Knee - Likely), C McQueen (Shoulder - Likely), J Clark (Head - Likely), M Crocker (Knee - Unlikely), B Champion (Ankle - Unlikely for NRL, maybe for NSW Cup).

[Team Changes: Same team that played on Monday night... so as we know - this means there could be changes. ]

FINALS WEEK 1 TEAM: CONFIRMED
SYD: A Minichiello, D Tupou, M Jennings, S Kenny-Dowall, R Tuivasa-Sheck, J Maloney, M Pearce (c), J Waerea-Hargreaves (Suspended), J Friend, S Moa, M Aubusson, SB Williams, FP Nuuausala.
Bench: D Mortimer, A Guerra, I Liu, D Napa, L O'Donnell, M Kennedy.
 # Team Changes: Just like that the Roosters get some depth back... downside is they lost Waerea-Hargreaves for one match for elbowing but Aubusson, Tuivasa-Sheck and O'Donnell are all set to return to the team that beat the Rabbitohs for the Minor Premiership. O'Donnell and Kennedy are listed as 18th and 19th men but with JWH is out, O'Donnell will almost certainly start, while Kennedy could force Liu or Napa off the bench. Cordner is the only star not available yet due to injury with a Grand Final return probably his best chance of playing again in 2013.
 + Injured List: A Minichiello (Knee - Likely), R Tuivasa-Sheck (Ankle - Likely), M Kennedy (Leg - Likely), M Aubusson (Head - Likely), B Cordner (Ankle - Unlikely).

Review all of the voting results from 2012 right here
Ben Barba was Top Dog in 2013 in the @NRLTweet Player of the Year Awards - can he repeat as champion?

Barba finished with 83 votes after the regular season, to beat North Queensland pair Matthew Bowen and Johnathan Thurston for the 2013 Award.


He joins Benji Marshall (2011) and Todd Carney (2010) as winners of this award that is decided by the best judges in the business - people who actually watch the games with no agenda and no bias.

Two voters per game using a 4-2-1 system = the best way of judging the Best of the Best in Rugby League.
