There is no shortage of great fullbacks in the game at the moment and Inglis is showing that he deserves to be in the top spot. Does Darius stand a chance against this superstar centre-turned-fullback?

With one last game before the off-season begins, will Boyd be looking to finish a tough season with a bang and send the Rabbitohs into the finals with a loss or will his mind be focused on Mad Monday celebrations?

Nate Myles
vs

After handing the Broncos their sixth straight loss last weekend the Sea Eagles are no longer flying under the radar. This week Manly can make it six straight wins if they handle the Titans with the same skills they showed the Broncos.

There is only one Choc Watmough but one player who knows how to stand up to his muscle is Nate Myles. The Titans might be out of the running for the premiership but no one likes to lose the last game of the year on home turf.

Braith Anasta
vs

It’s just his second year in the NRL but Josh has shown that he has the skills to lead a team all the way and the Bulldogs are poised to take the minor premiership. Can the youth and enthusiasm of Reynolds teach Braith a big lesson?

Although Braith isn’t retiring, it is his last hurrah in the Roosters’ red, white and blue and he will be looking to give the loyal fans a game to remember. Can this ex-Bulldog ruffle the feathers of Reynolds before the finals commence?

It is basically do-or-die for the Brisbane boys this weekend at Suncorp when they step out against the Panthers. No one will want to be responsible for ending Petero’s career prematurely so watch out for a fired-up Broncos outfit.

It has been a long season for the mountain men and it all comes to a close this Friday. A huge Suncorp crowd is a tough road trip for any team to conquer but at least the Panthers are no longer in danger of being handed the wooden spoon.

Benji has been cleared to play but with no Robbie Farah this must-win match will be a tough ask for the up-and-down Tigers. Can Sheens pull a swifty and save the Tigers’ season against the Storm or will it be lights out at Leichhardt?

A win against the Tigers could secure the Storm the minor premiership if the Bulldogs also lose against the Roosters, but Wests will be desperate not to start their holidays early. Will the Storm cast away the Tigers season?

A late season coaching shuffle and an inconsistent year means the Warriors will not be able to go one better than they did last season. Will the 2011 grand finalists show some pride in their final hit-out of 2012 when they host the Raiders?

The last game of the regular season is always a danger game with every team playing for pride or positions. The Warriors won’t want to let their home fans down so are the Raiders really secure in the top eight?

 

Farewell Hindmarsh

Farewell Burt

No matter how many tackles or metres Hindmarsh has made in his career, his tight shorts will always be the one thing that fans will remember most. Will Hindmarsh be more missed than his teammate Luke Burt?

One of the most underrated players of his generation, Luke Burt always delivered consistent and skilful performances for the blue and gold army but will the spotlight of his farewell match be taken by Hindy?

Farewell Young

Farewell Hornby

vs
Tuesday 28th August
Tuesday 28th August

Dean Young is a true Dragons clubman who followed in the footsteps of his father and wore the famous Red V with pride. Does Young’s family connection make his more of a fan favourite than Hornby?

Hornby has not often grabbed the headlines but his dedication and commitment to the famous Red V will be hard to replace. After leading the Dragons to the pinnacle of the premiership in 2010, Hornby will always be held in high regard.
