Penrith v Melbourne will be cracker.

Penrith win they will seal the minor premiership.
Melbourne win you think they will be safe for top 4 and possibly back in contention again.

Think Penrith will be too good.

Parra v Souths another cracker. Both still trying to crack top 4.

I think the Roosters will take of the Cowboys.

Panthers: Matt Eisenhuth will start at prop in place of the suspended James Fisher-Harris while Viliame Kikau has been named on the extended bench as he looks to return from the hip injury which sidelined him last week.
Storm: Cooper Johns looks set for an extended run in the halves, with Jahrome Hughes suffering a partial dislocation of his shoulder last week. Cameron Munster moves back to five-eighth with Nick Meaney returning from the concussion he suffered in Round 19. Powerful centre Justin Olam is back from his COVID lay-off so Young Tonumaipe'a goes to the reserves. Tom Eisenhuth will start in place of Felise Kaufusi who will miss the game to be with family after the passing of his father earlier in the week. Chris Lewis has been added to the bench.

Warriors: Another change at five-eighth with Daejarn Asi back in the halves and Wayde Egan moving from No.6 back to his usual position of hooker. Freddy Lussick goes back to the bench and Taniela Otukolo drops to the reserves. Viliami Vailea is back in the centres for his first NRL game since breaking his jaw in Round 12, so Euan Aitken goes back to the pack in place of Bayley Sironen. Josh Curran is the new lock, replacing Aaron Pene who is out with a leg injury.
Bulldogs: Tevita Pangai Jnr has remained in Australia for family reasons and was unavailable for selection so Raymond Faitala-Mariner will start at lock as he did last week. Rookie Harrison Edwards joins the interchange after serving as the Bulldogs' replacement player in Round 21.

Eels: Just the one change from the side which beat Manly in Round 21, with Ofahiki Ogden set to play his first NRL game of the year, joining the interchange at the expense of Makahesi Makatoa. Winger Bailey Simonsson is among the reserves as he looks to return from a hamstring injury.
Rabbitohs: Hame Sele returns from a hamstring injury in the front row, pushing Daniel Suluka-Fifita to the reserves. Thomas Burgess has served his one-game suspension but will miss the match with a groin injury. Centre Campbell Graham is still sidelined by the cheekbone injury which has kept him out since Round 16.

Roosters: Hooker Sam Verrills has been named but will need to pass the NRL’s HIA protocol this week after suffering a head knock against the Broncos. Egan Butcher returns after serving a one-game ban, replacing Ben Thomas on the bench. Lindsay Collins (concussion) and Siosiua Taukeiaho (cheekbone) remain sidelined.
Cowboys: After suffering a hamstring injury which denied him a place in the Origin decider, Jordan McLean is back on the Cowboys bench but winger Kyle Feldt remains sidelined with his own hamstring issue. Reuben Cotter comes into the starting side with Jamayne Taunoa-Brown going back to the bench.

Wests Tigers: With Ken Maumalo sidelined by a suspected PCL injury Starford To’a shifts to the wing and James Roberts comes in at centre for his sixth appearance of the year. Zane Musgrove earns a start in the front row, which means Joe Ofahengaue shifts from prop to lock and impressive rookie Fonua Pole reverts to the interchange. Luke Garner has been named as 18th Man as he continues to work his way back from a neck injury.
Sharks: Lachie Miller will play on the wing in place of Connor Tracey, who will be rested after he was knocked out in a Tariq Sims high shot on Saturday night. Playmaker Matt Moylan remains sidelined with a quad injury so Braydon Trindall again fills the five-eighth role. Dale Finucane is back from suspension so Cameron McInnes reverts to the bench. Prop Royce Hunt is listed among the reserves as he nears a return from a shoulder injury.

Broncos: After making a successful return from a rib injury for Wynnum Manly on Sunday, Te Maire Martin is back in the No.1 jersey. Brenko Lee has been recalled in the centres at the expense of Deine Mariner. In the pack Billy Walters has been named to start at hooker with Jake Turpin on the bench.
Knights: Adam Clune is back in the No.7 jersey in place of Jake Clifford, who played several minutes with a fractured arm in Sunday’s victory over Wests Tigers and underwent corrective surgery on Tuesday to repair the fracture. David Klemmer returns to the side after missing Round 21 for disciplinary reasons. Mitch Barnett is out with a thumb injury, replaced at lock by Mat Croker. Prop Jacob Saifiti left the field in the closing minutes against the Tigers after suffering a head knock but has been named. Edrick Lee has been named among the reserves as he looks to return from a foot injury but still no sign of utility Kurt Mann (quad).

Raiders: Prop Joseph Tapine is out with a rib injury, with Emre Guler taking his place in the starting front row and Corey Horsburgh joining the interchange. After missing round 21 with an ankle complaint, Xavier Savage is back at fullback which means Albert Hopoate, who played there last week, shifts to the wing in place of the suspended Nick Cotric.
Dragons: Tariq Sims' ban for a careless high tackle sees Josh McGuire move into the starting side and Tyrell Fuimaono join the bench for his first game since Round 12. Billy Burns also joins the bench. Michael Molo has been promoted to the starting side with brother Francis dropping out. Fullback Cody Ramsey is listed among the reserves as he looks to return from a knee injury.

Titans: Erin Clark returns to hooker after the season-ending knee injury to Aaron Booth and Issac Liu moves into the starting side at lock. Tanah Boyd remains at halfback with Toby Sexton named in the reserves after being rested last week. Patrick Herbert returns from injury on the wing so Greg Marzhew goes to the bench.
Sea Eagles: Toafofoa Sipley has been named to start at prop with Taniela Paseka sidelined by a knee injury. Josh Aloiai returns from a knee injury on the bench but Sean Keppie (shoulder) is still out. Veteran five-eighth Kieran Foran is set to play despite suffering a hamstring injury against the Eels.

Penrith looking beatable the last few weeks, among the elite challengers. Not a fait accompli them being premiers, why going back-to-back is really hard.

Whomever it was that mentioned the Rabbitohs as a dark horse is astute. Roosters hitting form, Storm and Eels finding their mojo again, Cowboys and Sharks still there. And who knows, maybe the bottom is about to fall a bit for the Panthers now?

Missing two of the competitions best 20 players in the most crucial playmaking roles. They come back I think it’s back to being Penriths to lose.

Edwards is a massive loss too, he's had a great season. That was an awesome defensive effort from Melbourne, though.
