Sea Eagles vs Tigers

Brad Parker and Curtis Sironen will both miss Manly’s clash with the Tigers, after the pair suffered injuries last weekend. They’re both scheduled to miss 1-2 weeks. Daly Cherry-Evans will be named despite ankle troubles last week.

Robbie Farah has a fractured fibia, and won’t play against Manly. The Tigers are hopeful, but unsure, as to whether he’ll play again this season. Jacob Liddle will likely replace him. Moses Mbye fought through a hip injury last weekend, but will be named in the hope he will be fit to play.

Titans vs Eels

Michael Gordon is still out with a hamstring injury, while Ash Taylor won’t be called up from the Queensland Cup.

Kane Evans was a late withdrawal last weekend, and should come straight back into the side, with Peni Terepo the unlucky one to make way.

Broncos vs Panthers

Tom Dearden and Sean O’Sullivan should both be available for selection, while Matt Gillett is hoping to play after missing a month with injury. Jake Turpin has impressed at halfback, but could be shifted to hooker in order to accommodate for those Bronco ins.

James Maloney will return from suspension, and take the spot of Matt Burton. Jarome Luai and Wayde Egan will both need to pass fitness tests.

Knights vs Cowboys

Tim Glasby will miss through concussion, after copping his second head knock over the past three weeks. James Gavet should replace him.

Josh McGuire will miss the next three weeks after he was suspended for eye-gouging, although he should be replaced by Jordan McLean, who missed last weekend’s match with a calf injury.

Storm vs Raiders

Jahrome Hughes and Ryan Papenhuyzen were both ruled out of the Storm’s win last weekend, and the pair remain in doubt for this weekend. Brandon Smith could miss a few weeks through injury with an ankle problem.

The Raiders are expected to be 1-17 in this one.

Rabbitohs vs Bulldogs

Adam Reynolds’ injury isn’t serious, as he remains a chance to play this weekend. Sam Burgess should play, while Braidon Burns will also be named.

Adam Elliott could come into the side after battling with a finger injury, and could take the place of Raymond Faitala-Mariner.

Roosters vs Warriors

Sam Verrills limped off against the Raiders last week, but could play this weekend after escaping any serious injuries. Sio Siua Taukeiaho and Boyd Cordner are both waiting in the wings, and could make their returns this weekend.

Kodi Nikorima is now expected to be fit, although Chanel Harris-Tavita was brilliant against the Sea Eagles, so coach Stephen Kearney has a decision to make.

Sharks vs Dragons

Andrew Fifita didn’t run out the game last weekend, but could do enough during the week to play against the Dragons. Matt Prior is in doubt, although Matt Moylan should return.

Tariq Sims has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, following groin surgery on Monday. Zac Lomax missed their win over the Titans, but could return this week.

  2. Souths will struggle to break there losing streak this week, 2019 is over for all you toothless Souths fans.

  3. I read that the Sharks have spent half of their cap on just 6 players. So the salary cap squeeze is well & truly on there.
    Time for the Panthers & Tigers to get some revenge , with buying some good up & coming Sharks players. They can’t afford to keep a lot of them now , even after leering a couple of players go & retirements.
    It’s been all the Sharks buying players from West’s & Penrith in the past. Time now for those clubs to get in & steal some of the promising up & coming players from the Sharks. I’m sure there are quite a few to choose from.
