Roosters v Rabbitohs
The Roosters will have four big inclusions, with Luke Keary, Sio Siua Taukeiaho, Mitch Aubusson and Brett Morris all set to be named on Tuesday afternoon. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will be named, although he’ll need to successfully fight his one-match ban at the judiciary on Tuesday night. Jake Friend looks set to spend another week on the sidelines.
For the Bunnies, George Burgess is finally available, although Wayne Bennett will need to determine what to do with the Englishman. Burgess has missed the past nine games through suspension, although given his brother Sam will miss Friday’s clash due to a one-match ban, it may open up a spot for him. Dane Gagai will miss with a hamstring injury, although he’ll be replaced by James Roberts. Liam Knight and John Sutton will both need to pass concussion protocol following hits during last week’s clash.
Storm v Raiders
Melbourne erred on the side of caution with Cameron Munster last weekend following a shoulder injury the week before, and should come straight back into the side. Josh Addo-Carr was rested too, and he’s also set to return.
Joey Leilua is set to return following a suspension, while Joe Tapine could come back into the side following a layoff after a rib injury. Michael Oldfield will likely miss with a shoulder complaint, while Corey Horsbrugh is in doubt.
Sea Eagles v Sharks
Martin Taupau will miss through suspension, Taniela Paseka and Curtis Sironen will miss, as the pair join some big names already on the sidelines. Morgan Boyle and Jack Gosiewski missed last weekend’s clash, but are an outside chance to return. Also, Lottoland has held its spot!
Ronaldo Mulitalo will also miss through suspension, but could be replaced by any of Sione Katoa, Aaron Gray or Kurt Capewell. Matt Moylan could return from a hamstring injury, which could see Josh Dugan shifted out wide.
Eels v Broncos
Nathan Brown will return from suspension, although Kane Evans could miss with a ban.
Joe Ofahengaue is set to return from a calf injury, which is a big boost for the Broncos. the enforcer is set to be thrust straight back into the starting 13.
