The official NRL Team Lists announced first every Tuesday on, now updated with Friday's late mail.

Remember to set up your Bundaberg NRL Tipping competition before the weekend and if you really want to get involved this season, sign up for Toyota NRL Dream Team. Head to Head rounds don't start until Round 4, so there is still time to register and compete against your friends and family for bragging rights.


South Sydney Rabbitohs v Brisbane Broncos at NIB Stadium, 6:00pm (local). #NRLSOUBRI

RABBITOHS: Greg Inglis, Andrew Everingham, Matt King, Shaune Corrigan, Dylan Farrell, John Sutton, Adam Reynolds, Scott Geddes, Issac Luke, Roy Asotasi, Sam Burgess, David Taylor, Michael Crocker. Interchange (from): Chris McQueen, Eddy Pettybourne, David Tyrrell, Jason Clark, Nathan Peats 

Late Mail: The Rabbitohs will also be as named, dropping Nathan Peats from their 17 and keeping Nathan Merritt (who is in Perth) fresh for next round.

BRONCOS: Josh Hoffman, Gerard Beale, Jack Reed, Justin Hodges, Jharal Yow Yeh, Corey Norman, Peter Wallace, Ben Hannant, Andrew McCullough, Petero Civoniceva, Alex Glenn, Sam Thaiday (c), Ben Te'o. Interchange: Ben Hunt, Josh McGuire, Matt Gillett, Scott Anderson 

Late Mail: Barring last-minute mishaps, the Broncos should run out as named.

Parramatta Eels v Penrith Panthers at Parramatta Stadium, 7:30pm (local). #NRLPARPEN

EELS: Luke Burt, Ken Sio, Ryan Morgan, Willie Tonga, Cheyse Blair, Ben Roberts, Chris Sandow, Tim Mannah, Matthew Keating, Mitchell Allgood, Nathan Hindmarsh (C), Taniela Lasalo, Reni Maitua. Interchange (from): Casey McGuire, Fuifui Moimoi, Justin Poore, Joseph Paulo, Pat O’Hanlon

Late Mail: The Eels are hoping Jarryd Hayne can play, but no-one will know if he's in or out until an hour before kick-off when the team is named. We think he'll miss out. Also causing problems for Parra is Nathan Hindmarsh. He too will be given until the 11th hour to prove his fitness. Expect him to suit up. FuiFui Moimoi & Chris Sandow are apparently good to go after shaking off their respective niggles, so Pat O'Hanlon misses out. Plus, expect Ken Sio to spend more time playing fullback.

PANTHERS: Lachlan Coote, Etu Uaisele, Michael Jennings, Brad Tighe, David Simmons, Travis Burns, Luke Walsh, Sam Mckendry, Kevin Kingston, Tim Grant, Nathan Smith, Clint Newton, Luke Lewis. Interchange (from): Danny Galea, Dayne Weston, Blake Austin, Ryan Simpkins, Cameron Ciraldo, Mitch Achurch

Late Mail: There is still some doubt over Tim Grant, and it looks like he will not play. Coach Ivan Cleary is still mulling over the make-up of the bench with word Cameron Ciraldo is no chance giving last week's debutant Ryan Simpkins the inside running on the last spot. Chris Armit has been ruled out for at least two to three weeks. 


Warriors v Gold Coast Titans at Mt Smart Stadium, 7:30pm (local). #NRLWARGLD

WARRIORS: Kevin Locke, Bill Tupou, Ben Henry, Jerome Ropati, Manu Vatuvei, James Maloney, Shaun Johnson, Sione Lousi, Nathan Friend, Ben Matulino, Lewis Brown, Simon Mannering (C), Elijah Taylor. Interchange (from): Russell Packer, Feleti Mateo, Konrad Hurrell, Ukuma Ta’Ai, John Palavi

Late Mail: Expect James Maloney to take his place in the halves. Although he wasn't named, there is some talk Sam Rapira will return to the team, with sources claiming he has a 50/50 chance of playing.

TITANS: William Zillman, Steve Michaels, Bodene Thompson, Beau Champion, Dominique Peyroux, Greg Bird, Scott Prince (c), Luke Bailey, Matt Srama, Luke Douglas, Nate Myles, Mark Minichiello, Ashley Harrison. Interchange (from): Matthew White, Ben Ridge, Kayne Lawton, Brenton Lawrence

Late Mail: Jordan Rankin is out due to a foot problem with Greg Bird moving to the halves. Their is also some doubt over Nate Myles and Ash Harrison, but they should play with Myles dropping to the second row, Luke Douglas starting up front and Brenton Lawrence slotting on to the bench. Jamal Idris will not make an unexpected return.

St George Illawarra Dragons v Manly Sea Eagles at WIN Jubilee Oval, 7:30pm (local). #NRLSTIMAN

DRAGONS: Brett Morris, Daniel Vidot, Matt Cooper, Kyle Stanley, Jason Nightingale, Jamie Soward, Ben Hornby, Dan Hunt, Mitch Rein, Michael Weyman, Matt Prior, Ben Creagh, Dean Young. Interchange: Cameron King, Jeremy Latimore, Trent Merrin, Jack De Belin, Josh Miller, Beau Scott, Leeson Ah Mau

Late Mail: St George Illawarra coach Steve Price has declared Matt Cooper a certain starter for Saturday, but representative utility Beau Scott remains in doubt. Jack De Belin is carrying a shoulder injury but is still expected to play.

Interchange (from): James Segeyaro, Joel Riethmuller, Ashton Sims, Jason Taumalolo, Ricky Thorby 

Late Mail: The Cowboys will be 1-17 with Ricky Thorby dropping out.

SHARKS: Nathan Gardner, Stewart Mills, Ben Pomeroy, Colin  Best, John Williams, Todd Carney, Jeff Robson, Bryce Gibbs, Isaac  De Gois, Ben Ross, Jeremy  Smith, Jayson  Bukuya, Paul Gallen. Interchange (from): Andrew  Fifita, Wade Graham, John Morris, Anthony Tupou, Mark Taufua, Sam Tagataese

Late Mail: Bryce Gibbs is no certainty but is rated better about 70/30 to play. If he doesn't Sam Tagatese will come in instead of Mark Taufua.


Melbourne Storm v Sydney Roosters at AAMI Park, 2:00pm (local). #NRLMELSYD
