Sea Eagles: Origin trio Daly Cherry-Evans, Tom Trbojevic and Jake Trbojevic have been named to back up 48 hours after the series opener, although the likes of Cade Cust and Jorge Taufua are on standby.
Kieran Foran (hand) and Dylan Walker (hamstring) are set to make welcome returns from injury. Ben Trbojevic (head knock) is expected to play after passing concussion protocols during the bye period.
Sea Eagles winger Jason Saab has scored 11 tries in his past eight games.
Cowboys: Maroons reps Valentine Holmes, Kyle Feldt and Coen Hess have been named to back up for the side but the club's medical staff won't make a call until Thursday morning.
Hess is 18th man for the Maroons so is more likely than the other two if he doesn't get onto the field.
Veteran centre Justin O'Neill has been named among the reserves as he works his way back from a knee injury.
The Cowboys have won their past three games at Lottoland.

Sharks: Back-to-back wins, a week off to freshen up and five players returning from injury or suspension combine for the perfect preparation as Cronulla gear up for competition leaders Penrith.
The only change to the side which downed the Titans in round 12 is Andrew Fifita joining the bench at the expense of Franklin Pele.
Mawene Hiroti and Teig Wilton have been named among the reserves having completed their suspensions while prop Braden Hamlin-Uele (ankle) is at least another week away from returning.
Panthers: Ivan Cleary will be closely monitoring the fitness of his seven State of Origin representatives as they strive to back up from the series opener.
Nathan Cleary, Jarome Luai, Isaah Yeo, Brian To'o, Liam Martin and Kurt Capewell have all been named as reserves while Blues 18th man Api Koroisau is in the starting side, replacing Mitch Kenny who goes to the bench.
"We're not expecting any of the Origin boys to play, I don't think," centre Stephen Crichton told NRL.com on Monday.
"I don't think they will and I don't think the coaches are expecting them to either. It just gives us a good chance again to step up."
Prop Moses Leota's return from suspension sees Spencer Leniu revert to the bench. Jaeman Salmon and Lindsay Smith drop out of the squad.

Titans: AJ Brimson carried a knee injury into Origin camp but is good to go for the series opener and has been named to back up on Saturday by coach Justin Holbrook.
Impressive youngster Jayden Campbell is on the reserves list and could be called up should Brimson fail to come through after Townsville.
The club's other three Origin reps – David Fifita, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and Moeaki Fotuaika – will be monitored.
Winger Anthony Don (hip) and hooker Mitch Rein (shoulder) have been listed among the reserves after both were ruled out of the clash with Melbourne and could be late inclusions.
Roosters: James Tedesco has been named to back up from Origin I but Joseph Suaalii is waiting in the reserves if the star fullback fails to do so.
Isaac Liu has been included after a nasty eye injury in round 12, while Sam Walker is back in the No.7 jersey after being rested.
Veteran prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will play his 250th NRL game.

Rabbitohs: Dane Gagai and Jai Arrow have been rested and won't play the Knights, while a decision on the remaining Origin representatives including Damien Cook and Latrell Mitchell won't be made until Thursday.
Rabbitohs coach Wayne Bennett has rested his Origin players in the past after games, so expect some late changes.
Mark Nicholls (head knock) has been named to start but will need to get through the training week.
The Rabbitohs have won 10 of their past 12 games against the Knights.
Knights: The club's only concern for Origin is Daniel Saifiti in an otherwise injury-hit line-up available again this week. Phoenix Crossland returns to halfback alongside mid-season recruit Jake Clifford.
An injury to Starford To'a will see Kurt Mann shift to the centres and Enari Tuala onto the wing.
The Knights have won three of their past four games at Stadium Australia.

Raiders: The club will monitor Jack Wighton's fitness following Origin I, although you'd expect him to be available if he only plays limited minutes off the bench.
Bailey Simonsson replaces Caleb Aekins at fullback, Semi Valemei is the new winger, Josh Papalii returns from suspension at prop and Joseph Tapine (knee) makes his comeback on the interchange.
The Raiders are aiming for three consecutive wins over the Broncos for the first time since 1994-95.
Broncos: More reshuffling by Kevin Walters on Tuesday will see Karmichael Hunt play his first NRL game since 2009.
Origin representatives Payne Haas and Xavier Coates have been included but will be monitored on Thursday if they are to make the trip to the nation's capital.
David Mead and Jordan Riki are among those on standby in the reserves. Kobe Hetherington (ankle) is expected to play.
The Broncos have lost 16 of their past 17 games away from home.

Warriors: Star prop Addin Fonua-Blake has been named among the reserves and will need to get through training this week to play his first game since suffering a knee injury against the Roosters in round four.
Skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck returns to the fullback role with young gun Reece Walsh suspended.
Kodi Nikorima suffered a head knock against the Cowboys before the bye but is good to go.
The Warriors have won four of their past six games at Central Coast Stadium.
Storm: Nelson Asofa-Solomona will miss the Warriors game after he was found guilty of contrary conduct at the judiciary on Tuesday night.
There was better luck for centre Reimis Smith who had a high tackle charge downgraded and he is free to play.
Origin reps Cameron Munster, Felise Kaufusi and Josh Addo-Carr have been selected in the starting side while Harry Grant and Christian Welch slot in on the interchange.
All players will be monitored to see if they're to back up.
Back-rower Kenny Bromwich, who was initially expected to be sidelined for two weeks by the rib injury he suffered against the Titans, has been named in Melbourne's second row.
The Storm have won their past 10 games against the Warriors.

Eels: Brad Arthur will wait and see how many minutes Junior Paulo racks up in Origin I before making a call on whether the prop takes the field.
Regardless, Arthur looks likely to make a late change and include Will Smith as a back-up for Joey Lussick, who has only played 22 minutes of first grade this year.
Lussick has been named to start at hooker after Reed Mahoney picked up a shoulder injury last week.
Haze Dunster has kept Blake Ferguson in reserve grade for at least another week.
The Eels have won their past six games against the Wests Tigers.
Wests Tigers: Moses Mbye is expected to play despite limping from the field last week with a knee injury.
Joe Ofahengaue's minutes in Origin will be monitored before the club makes a call on his availability.
Like the Eels, Michael Maguire has four big men on the bench. Thomas Mikaele (knee) is facing at least a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a medial injury.
Wests Tigers centre Tommy Talau has scored eight tries in eight games at Bankwest Stadium.

Bulldogs: Jeremy Marshall-King (foot) has been named to make his return from injury but Lachlan Lewis (ribs) and Corey Allan (shoulder) are more likely in round 15.
Brad Deitz (hamstring) and fellow dummy-half Jackson Topine drop out of the 21-man squad. The club is not impacted by State of Origin and should be 1-17.
Dallin Watene-Zelezniak (foot) is expected to play. Bulldogs centre Nick Cotric has scored four tries in six games against the Dragons.
Dragons: Anthony Griffin has included Tariq Sims in the reserves with the enforcer set to prove his fitness in the five-day turnaround.
Sims' availability could see a reshuffle with Jack Bird named to start in the back row.
Poasa Faamausili suffered a head knock last week and will need to pass concussion protocols to play.
The Dragons have won four of their past five games against the Bulldogs.

I'm not even joking as a Broncos fan. If it were possible to put the team we have now up against Seibold's Broncos last year you could name your price and I'd give you a 3 try head start and STILL be confident I'd win.

A tad sad seeing Ferg run around in the early game.
Put your money on Wests, 3 of the last 4 games I’ve flown over for we have lost 🤣
