Dragons: Mikaele Ravalawa makes his return from the hamstring injury that has kept him out of the Red V's last three matches so Jonathon Reuben makes way. Mat Feagai returns from illness on the left wing so Tautau Moga goes out.
Jaydn Su'A moves into the starting side and Jack de Belin pushes up to the front row so Francis Molo goes to the bench and Josh McGuire (groin) is out. Hooker Andrew McCullough has been named to start in his 300th NRL game with Moses Mbye on the bench.
Rabbitohs: Just the one change to the team that beat Gold Coast with Blake Taaffe joining the bench and Peter Mamouzelos dropping to the reserves. Superstar fullback Latrell Mitchell will miss the match under the NRL's COVID protocols so if he is to help NSW avenge their Game One loss he'll have to do it without a game under his belt. The Rabbitohs reported on Monday that Mitchell was back in training after contracting COVID on his return from America but he will not be available until Round 16.

Sea Eagles: Skipper Daly Cherry-Evans is back after missing the Tigers game with a quad injury so Kieran Foran shifts back to five-eighth, Josh Schuster goes to the bench and Ben Trbojevic to the reserves.
Cowboys: Maroons star Reuben Cotter is back on deck at prop so Coen Hess reverts to the bench. Jeremiah Nanai also returns after an ankle injury suffered in Origin One kept him out of the Dragons game. Nanai replaces Tom Gilbert, who is out with an eye injury. Rising star Heilum Luki (knee) is out for the season so Connelly Lemuelu moves into the starting side.

Storm: Star fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen is listed among the reserves as he closes in on a return from the hamstring injury that has sidelined him since round nine. If Papenhuyzen does move into the starting side later in the week that would allow Nick Meaney to slide back to the wing. Impressive debutant Grant Anderson has retained his spot in the 17. Felise Kaufusi was hit with a fine for dangerous contact on Sam Walker and elected to fight the charge at the judiciary on Tuesday night.
Broncos: Skipper Adam Reynolds will miss the game with a rib injury, paving the way for Tyrone Roberts to play his second game of the season after coming off the bench in round one. Kotoni Staggs returns after missing the Raiders game with a corked shoulder suffered in Origin One and Brenko Lee holds his place in the centres with Herbie Farnworth sidelined by a biceps injury. Maroons winger Selwyn Cobbo is back on deck so Jordan Pereira goes to 18th man.
Kurt Capewell returns in the back row so TC Robati goes to the reserves. Jake Turpin joins the bench in place of the injured Cory Paix (knee). Payne Haas has been named to play despite hurting his shoulder against Canberra.

Sharks: Craig Fitzgibbon sticks with the same 17 that got the job done against the Warriors. Wade Graham made a successful return from injury against the Warriors and will have his sights set on a clean run to the finals. Skipper Dale Finucane is listed among the reserves as he nears a return from a knee injury.
Titans: AJ Brimson (COVID protocols) returns at fullback allowing Jamayne Isaako to go back to the wing and Esan Marsters drops to the reserves. Captain Tino Fa'asuamaleaui is back in the starting side at lock so Moeaki Fotuaika goes to the bench. Erin Clark has been named at hooker despite picking up a rib injury against Souths.
Kevin Proctor is listed among the reserves as he nears a return after five weeks out with a bicep injury.

Warriors: Several changes for interim coach Stacey Jones in his second game in charge. Youngster Ronald Volkman will make his NRL debut at five-eighth, pushing Chanel Harris-Tavita to the bench while Jesse Arthars comes into the centres at the expense of Rocco Berry.
With Ben Murdoch-Masila suffering a dislocated elbow, Bunty Afoa moves into the starting side and Aaron Pene joins the bench. Euan Aitken misses the game with concussion and his place is taken by Josh Curran.
Addin Fonua-Blake has been named on the extended bench and is poised to return from the foot injury that has sidelined him since round 11.
Panthers: Skipper Isaah Yeo returns for the premiers after he was given a rest last weekend so Matt Eisenhuth goes back to the reserves.

Eels: Brad Arthur has stuck solid with the same 17 that suffered a shock loss to the Bulldogs on Monday. Maika Sivo made a successful return in his first NRL game since round 23 last year and will be better for the run.
Roosters: Luke Keary has been named to play but will be monitored through the week after suffering a concussion against the Storm. Hooker Sam Verrills makes his return from a collarbone injury and Drew Hutchison reverts to the bench. Paul Momirovski has been replaced in the centres by Billy Smith.
Egan Butcher has been added to the bench and Daniel Suluka-Fifita goes to the reserves.

Raiders: Jordan Rapana returns from suspension on the wing in the only chnage to the 17 that went down to Brisbane. Josh Papalii is back in the starting side after coming off the bench last week following his Origin commitments.
Knights: Kalyn Ponga has been named to play but will need to pass the necessary concussion protocols this week to play after failing his HIA against Penrith. Kurt Mann moves into the starting side at lock with Mitch Barnett going to the second row and Lachlan Fitzgibbon dropping to the reserves. Pasami Saulo is the new face on the bench. Bradman Best (elbow) is likely still a week away.

Bulldogs: Chris Patolo will miss the match after suffering a head knock in the win over Parramatta so Kurtis Morrin joins the bench for his NRL debut. Raymond Faitala-Mariner has been named in the starting side with Corey Waddell moving to the bench. Englishman Luke Thompson remains sidelined as he struggles with the effects of concussion while Ava Seumanufagai has not been named after withdrawing from Monday's game with a calf injury.
Tigers: Adam Doueihi makes his long awaited return from a knee reconstruction on the interchange bench in a huge boost for the Tigers. Asu Kepaoa takes the place of the suspended Brent Naden in the centres.
Luciano Leilua has been granted an immediate release to join the Cowboys for the remainder of the season. Kelma Tuilagi moves from the bench to the starting side to take his place.
Fa'amanu Brown earns a recall on the bench at the expense of Jock Madden.

Amazing 1st half by the Saints.

Or not by their opponents. Never been a Ben Hunt fan, but it would be churlish to deny that he's been very good this season. And Souths? Well, they're a bit rubbish, aren't they? Ramsey is another one (like Dominic Young) that I never thought looked up to first-grade, but has proved me wrong.

I really hope the Warriors put up a decent fight so there might be at least a decent sort of crowd back at Mt Smart next weekend.

Great effort from the Cowboys. Their attack looks so good this season.

Tedesco got a Papali'i shoulder, you would think he goes off on a HIA. Nice try by Papali'i too from a great offload from Matterson.

Three tries in about 15 minutes to Parramatta. I don't who those imposters were last week, but this is the Eels team that I love watching, fast tempo, entertaining football with clever offloads and quick play the balls.

That was a fantastic first half, highly entertaining with some of the best tries of the season. The one scored by Sivo will take a beating for try of the season.

Two very different halves, but each enjoyable in their own way.

Nice to see Parra rebound after that woeful performance last week, still it's frustrating to watch them having to rebound after a performance like last week.

It will be interesting to see which Parramatta team turns up next week and for the remainder of the season. Our next two games are away against the bunnies and kittens then we have six of our last eight at home, including games against Penrith, Brisbane (also away) and Melbourne in the last round. We have shown we are good enough to beat the best, so winning all of them should be a possibility, but last week tells me an embarrassing loss or two is still on the cards.

You can't complain at that, though. A wonderful contest with some truly brilliant scores.

Newcastle are poor. I just watched the Bulldogs. They are clearly improving a lot after a dismal few years. I reamin unconvinced about Flanangan, though. He did one very good thing (the wide shift to the right for a score), but he just doesn't offer enough for me; even when he was playing the halves with the falliable Jake Averillo, I often thought, at least Averillo offers something. And he's not done too bad at full-back either, the try he scored from kicking through was quite some sharp thinking, both from him, and the forward who managed to lay the ball off backwards to him. Burton is a talented player with a great kicking game, but it says something about Penrith that they haven't missed him.
