NRL Team Lists- Round 10

With the rep season getting into full swing, we’re seeing players rested and more late inclusions that you can poke a stick at. For those sides struggling at the moment, the coming rounds are vital, as they could well face depleted sides. Let’s see who’s been named for Round 10…

FRIDAY
BULLDOGS v ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA DRAGONS at ANZ Stadium, 7.35pm
BULLDOGS: Ben Barba, Steve Turner, Josh Morris, Jamal Idris, Michael Lett, Kris Keating, Trent Hodkinson, Aiden Tolman, Michael Ennis, Mickey Paea, Frank Pritchard, Andrew Ryan, David Stagg. Interchange: Greg Eastwood, Jake Foster, Corey Payne, Dene Halatau.
Ins: Jake Foster
Outs: Grant Millington (elbow, round 12)

DRAGONS: Darius Boyd, Brett Morris, Kyle Stanley, Matt Cooper, Jason Nightingale, Jamie Soward, Ben Hornby, Dan Hunt, Dean Young, Michael Weyman, Beau Scott, Ben Creagh, Matt Prior. Interchange: Adam Cuthbertson, Jon Green, Trent Merrin, Mitch Rein, Jack Bosden (one to be omitted).
Ins: Darius Boyd, Jason Nightingale, Jamie Soward, Jon Green
Outs: Bronx Goodwin (knee, round 20), Mark Gasnier (ankle, round 12), Peni Tagive (dropped)

Matt Considers: Good news for Dragons fans this week, with all of their rep players returning to the side, as well as fullback Darius Boyd. Bronx Goodwin, who probably wouldn’t have stayed anyway, is out for a while after injuring his knee, and Gasnier is out for some time as well. For the Bulldogs, only one change, with Jake Foster coming in for an injured Grant Millington after some good performances in State Cup.

PENRITH PANTHERS v BRISBANE BRONCOS at Centrebet Stadium, 7.35pm
PANTHERS: Michael Gordon, David Simmons, Timana Tahu, Brad Tighe, Adrian Purtell, Travis Burns, Luke Walsh, Tim Grant, Kevin Kingston, Petero Civoniceva, Trent Waterhouse, Nigel Plum, Luke Lewis. Interchange: Nafe Seluini, Sam McKendry, Dayne Weston, Natha Smith, Yileen Gordon (one to be omitted).
Ins: Adrian Purtell, Luke Lewis, Dayne Weston, Nathan Smith
Outs: Matthew Bell (dropped), Michael Jennings (calf and knee, round 11), Sarafu Fatiaki (dropped)

BRONCOS: Gerard Beale, Dale Copley, Jack Reed, Justin Hodges, Jharal Yow Yeh, Darren Lockyer (capt), Peter Wallace, Ben Hannant, Andrew McCullough, Nick Kenny, Alex Glenn, Sam Thaiday, Corey Parker. Interchange: Corey Norman, Scott Anderson, Mitchell Dodds, Dave Hala.
Ins: Justin Hodges, Darren Lockyer, Ben Hannant, Sam Thaiday
Outs: Dane Gagai (dropped), Ben Hunt (broken finger, round 15), Dunamis Lui (dropped), Dane Carlaw (dropped)

Adrian Considers:Luke Lewis is back for the Panthers, who desperately need a win. Joining him are Adrian Purtell, Dayne Weston and Nathan Smith. Michael Gordon keeps his spot at fullback, which is a big vote of confidence for one of Penrith’s best players. Jennings is out through a calf injury, which is a big blow to the Panthers’ chances.
How’s this for some handy Ins: Hodges, Lockyer, Hannant, Thaiday. Ben Te’o could be a late inclusion, so make sure you keep an eye on him. He could be a handy inclusion in your side during the Origin period.

SATURDAY
MELBOURNE STORM v CANBERRA RAIDERS at AAMI Park, 5.30pm
STORM: Billy Slater, Anthony Quinn, Dane Nielsen, Maurice Blair, Matt Duffie, Gareth Widdop, Cooper Cronk, Jesse Bromwich, Cameron Smith, Bryan Norrie, Adam Blair, Kevin Proctor, Todd Lowrie. Interchange: Ryan Hinchcliffe, Atelea Vea, Adam Woolnough, Jaiman Lowe, Rory Kostjasyn (one to be omitted).
Ins: Matt Duffie, Todd Lowrie
Outs: Sisa Waqa (dropped)

RAIDERS: Josh Dugan, Blake Ferguson, Jarrod Croker, Joel Thompson, Reece Robinson, Josh McCrone, Matt Orford, Dane Tilse, Alan Tongue (capt), Brett White, Danny Galea, Bronson Harrison, Shaun Fensom. Interchange: Glen Buttriss, Josh Miller, Sam Mataora, Trevor Thurling.
Ins: Josh Dugan
Outs: Nathan Massey (dropped)

Adrian Considers: Matt Duffie and Todd Lowrie return to the Storm side after being late withdrawals last week. Beau Champion’s shoulder injury gives Maurice Blair a run in the centres, which means he might be a good downgrade target for your Dream Team. There’s a surprising amount of depth here- it looks like the Storm machine just keeps moving on.
Just the one inclusion for the Raiders, with Dugan coming in for Nathan Massey. Interestingly, Danny Galea retains his starting spot. If this continues, he’d be handy pick up for your Dream Team, especially as he can be picked as a CTW.

SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS v WESTS TIGERS at ANZ Stadium, 7.30pm RABBITOHS: Rhys Wesser, Nathan Merritt, Dylan Farrell, Shaune Corrigan, James Roberts, John Sutton, Chris Sandow, Ben Ross, Issac Luke, Shannan McPherson, Dave Tyrrell, David Taylor, Michael Crocker (capt). Interchange: Eddy Pettybourne, Jason Clark, Chris McQueen, Nathan Peats.
Ins: Rhys Wesser, Shaune Corrigan
Outs: Greg Inglis (hip, round 12), Roy Asotasi (arm, season)

TIGERS: Wade McKinnon, Mitch Brown, Blake Ayshford, Tim Moltzen, Matt Utai, Benji Marshall, Robert Lui, Andrew Fifita, Robbie Farah, Keith Galloway, Simon Dwyer, Liam Fulton, Chris Heighington. Interchange: Beau Ryan, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Alan Schirnack, Aaron Woods.
Ins: None
Outs: None

Adrian Considers: Another long term injury sees captain Roy Asotasi out for the remainder of the season. There’s a slight chance he could very late in the competition, but it’s more than likely a case of the former. Greg Inglis is also missing with that injury he picked up in the test match. Shaune Corrigan takes his spot, and after having a bad run with injury the last few years himself, it will be good to see him get his chance in the top grade. Wesser is back, pushing James Roberts to the wing. With the front row stocks again ravaged by injury, it leaves Ben Ross as the only specialist prop in the team. Keep an eye on Jason Clark, as he could get a fair amount of game time now that he is fit again.

Matt Considers: No changes for the Tigers. Ben Murdoch-Masila is on the bench again after returning from injury against the Raiders. Bryce Gibbs hasn’t been named, and isn’t expecting to return until next week, but he may return early if Tim Sheens sees the need for him.

NORTH QUEENSLAND v PARRAMATTA EELS at Dairy Farmers Stadium, 7.30pm
COWBOYS: Matthew Bowen, Ashley Graham, Antonio Winterstein, Willie Tonga, Kalifa Faifai Loa, Ray Thompson, Johnathan Thurston, Matthew Scott, Aaron Payne, James Tamou, Gavin Cooper, Glenn Hall, Dallas Johnson. Interchange: Scott Bolton, Leeson Ah Mau, Tariq Sims, Ashton Sims, James Segeyaro (one to be omitted).
Ins: Glenn Hall
Outs: None

EELS: Jarryd Hayne, Luke Burt, Joel Reddy, Jacob Loko, Jordan Atkins, Daniel Mortimer, Jeff Robson, Tim Mannah, Casey McGuire, Fuifui Moimoi, Nathan Hindmarsh (capt), Taniela Lasalo, Ben Smith. Interchange: Billy Rogers, Shane Shackleton, Mitchell Allgood, Justin Horo.
Ins: Jarryd Hayne
Outs: Etu Uaisele (dropped)

Adrian Considers: Glenn Hall returns, which will really bolster the Cowboy’s pack. He’s been playing very well, and has flown under the radar a bit.
Only one inclusion for the Eels as well- Jarryd Hayne. He’ll be wanting to put in a big performance and find some form here, especially with Origin just around the corner.

SUNDAY
NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS v NZ WARRIORS at Ausgrid Stadium, 2pm

KNIGHTS: Shannon McDonnell, James McManus, Junior Sa’u, Wes Naiqama, Akuila Uate, Tyrone Roberts, Jarrod Mullen (capt), Richie Fa’aoso, Matt Hilder, Evarn Tuimavave, Chris Houston, Neville Costigan, Joel Edwards. Interchange: Isaac De Gois, Antonio Kaufusi, Cory Paterson, Dan Tolar, Mark Taufua (one to be omitted).
Ins: Neville Costigan, Isaac De Gois, Mark Taufua
Outs: Kurt Gidley (shoulder, indefinite), Marvin Karawana
WARRIORS: Kevin Locke, Krisnan Inu, Lewis Brown, Simon Mannering (capt), Manu Vatuvei, James Maloney, Brett Seymour, Russell Packer, Aaron Heremaia, Jacob Lillyman, Feleti Mateo, Elijah Taylor, Micheal Luck. Interchange: Lance Hohaia, Jeremy Latimore, Alehana Mara, Ben Matulino, Ukuma Taai (one to be omitted).
Ins: Aaron Heremaia
Outs: None

Adrian Considers:Some big changes for the Knights. In comes Costigan, De Gois, and Taufua. Kurt Gidley is out for an indefinite period, as is Marvin Karawana. Beau Henry should have returned this week, but is still out with that ankle injury. The return of Costigan and De Gois could signal the end of big scores for Houston and Hilder.
Aaron Heremaia is the only inclusion for the winning Warriors side. Elijah Taylor sticks around in the 2nd Row… what a buy he was!

CRONULLA SHARKS v SYDNEY ROOSTERS at Toyota Stadium, 3pm

SHARKS: Isaac Gordon, Matthew Wright, Ben Pomeroy, Colin Best, Stewart Mills, Wade Graham, Tim Smith, Kade Snowden, Paul Aiton, Luke Douglas, Jeremy Smith, Anthony Tupou, Paul Gallen, Josh Cordoba. Interchange: Broderick Wright, Stuart Flanagan, Jayson Bukuya, Taulima Tautai, Siosaia Vave (one to be omitted).
Ins: Isaac Gordon, Stewart Mills, Taulima Tautai, Siosaia Vave
Outs: Nathan Gardner (ankle, round 11), John Williams (ankle, round 15)

ROOSTERS: Anthony Minichiello, Steve Naughton, Kane Linnett, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Joseph ‘BJ’ Leilua, Todd Carney, Mitchell Pearce, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Jake Friend, Nate Myles, Mitchell Aubusson, Braith Anasta, Frank Paul Nuuausala. Interchange: Lama Tasi, Mose Masoe, Mark Riddell, Tom Symonds, Tinirau Arona (one to be omitted).
Ins: Steve Naughton, Kane Linnett, Todd Carney, Mose Masoe
Outs: Phil Graham (injury), Daniel Conn (injury), Martin Kennedy (injury)

Matt Considers: The big talking point here is the return of Todd Carney for the Roosters. His return sees Anasta return to the back-row, with Tom Symonds back on an extended bench. Steve Naughton comes in to make his debut on the wing, whilst Grand Final centre Kane Linnett comes back into the squad for Phil Graham on the back of some quality games for Newtown. The other big out is QLD prop Martin Kennedy, who is replaced by Mose Masoe. For the Sharks, Nathan Gardner is out with an ankle injury, and kicker John Williams is also out with an ankle injury. They have named Isaac Gordon and Stewart Mills to replace them, but have two spots on the bench to eliminate.

MONDAY
GOLD COAST TITANS v MANLY SEA EAGLES at Skilled Park, 7pm

TITANS: Preston Campbell, Steve Michaels, Esi Tonga, Bodene Thompson, David Mead, William Zillman, Scott Prince, Luke Bailey, Riley Brown, Matthew White, Greg Bird, Mark Minichiello, Ashley Harrison. Interchange: Michael Henderson, Ryan James, Ben Ridge, Luke O’Dwyer, Kayne Lawton (one to be ommitted).
Ins:
Luke Bailey
Outs:
None

SEA EAGLES: Brett Stewart, Michael Robertson, Jamie Lyon (capt), Steve Matai, Will Hopoate, Kieran Foran, Daly Cherry-Evans, Jason King (capt), Matt Ballin, Brent Kite, Anthony Watmough, Joe Galuvao, Glenn Stewart. Interchange: Vic Mauro, Jamie Buhrer, George Rose, Tony Williams, Tim Robinson (one to be omitted).
Ins: Jason King
Outs: None

Matt Considers: Both sides have a big prop returning this week. For the struggling Titans, it’s Luke Bailey, who could be the difference in their side. For the Eagles, Jason King returns to the side, and Brett Stewart, who finally made his return last week, has been named at fullback again. Expect Stewart to switch with both Robertson and Hopoate during the game, and slowly get miles in the legs on the wing, where he score two of his three tries last week.
