2014 NRL Teams Round 1 To The Grand Final This Week - Finals Week 2 Teams

Recommended Posts

Craig Bellamy has made one change to his line-up for Friday night's must win clash against the Broncos at AAMI Park.

Junior Moors replaces Dayne Weston on the interchange bench, with Weston and outside back Justin O'Neill dropping out of the 19-man squad named on Tuesday.

In a slight positional re-shuffle, Jordan McLean will start in the front-row with Bryan Norrie moving onto the interchange.

Saturday 6th September   Round 26 Games


Tigers v Sharks, Leichhardt Oval, 3pm

Wests Tigers are set to be 1-17, although Luke Brooks (hamstring) is a chance of being a late inclusion.
Sharks have doubts over Michael Lichaa (neck) and Tinirau Arona (hamstring), but expect no other changes.
UPDATE Thursday: Michael Lichaa (neck) and Tinirau Arona (hamstring) have trained this week and are right to play.
Raiders v Eels, GIO Stadium, 5.30pm
The Raiders will be 1-17, with Brett White (shoulder) training all week and cleared to return. Brenko Lee (hamstring) is no chance of being a late inclusion.
Ben Smith (suspension) is out in the only change for the Eels. He will be replaced on the bench by Pauli Pauli or Manu Ma’u. The decision is dependent on the fitness of Ma’u (broken arm), who is aiming to return after a long lay-off.
UPDATE Friday: The Eels say Manu Ma’u is only an “outside chance” to return this week.
Cowboys v Sea Eagles, 1300SMILES Stadium, 7.30pm
The Cowboys expect to be 1-17, with Johnathan Thurston (leg) to shake off a knock and Kane Linnett (dangerous throw) free to play after taking the early guilty plea at the judiciary.
Matt Ballin (broken fibula) is out. He will be replaced by young gun Jayden Hodges at hooker in what looms as Manly’s only change. Richie Fa’aoso (broken neck) has been cleared to return, although it’s uncertain when – or if – he will play NRL this season.
UPDATE  Friday: Matt Ballin has revealed his replacement Jayden Hodges won’t play the full 80 minutes. He is likely to be spelled by one of Manly’s back row forwards, possibly Tom Symonds.
