Late Mail: Round 16

All the late changes to Tuesday's official team lists heading into Round 16 of the NRL season.

FRIDAY

Sea Eagles v Roosters

Sea Eagles: Daly Cherry-Evans is still carrying a niggling knee injury but will play.

Roosters: The premiers have no injury worries apart from NSW centre Michael Jennings, who is out until Round 21. They're expected to be 1-17 with Heath L'Estrange the man most likely to drop off the bench.

Broncos v Sharks

Broncos: No changes expected, with injured trio Andrew McCullough, Matt Gillett and Corey Parker all set to be held back.

Sharks: Chris Heighington and Jeff Robson have been cleared of leg and hamstring injuries and are fit to play, with one player still to be cut from Cronulla's five-man bench.

SATURDAY

Wests Tigers v Raiders

Wests Tigers: No changes expected.

Raiders: Josh Papalii could make an early return from an ankle injury after training on Thursday. Anthony Milford will start at fullback as named after coming off the bench last week.

Cowboys v Rabbitohs

Cowboys: Rory Kostjasyn is in doubt with a rib injury.

Rabbitohs: George Burgess is still in some doubt with an ankle injury, while Bryson Goodwin and Joel Reddy were both left out of Souths' initial side but could overcome their injuries and be late inclusions. Kirisome Auva'a is likely to play despite an ankle complaint.

SUNDAY

Warriors v Panthers

Warriors: Wingers David Fusitua and Manu Vatuvei are both in some doubt, with Vatuvei in particular battling to overcome a cork.

Panthers: Jamal Idris trained with Penrith on Thursday and could play, with Kevin Naiqama a chance to be pushed out of the side with Dean Whare shifting to the wing alongside Isaah Yeo. Lock Adam Docker is fit to make his return from concussion.

Eels v Knights

Eels: Origin star Will Hopoate is unlikely to be a late inclusion due to his shoulder injury, meaning the Eels would be 1-17.

Knights: Hooker Adam Clydsdale is battling a knee injury and David Fa'alogo has a back injury, and both are yet to be confirmed starters. Joseph Tapine is on standby, with Tyrone Roberts likely to come into the starting side if Clydsdale drops out.

MONDAY

Dragons v Storm

Dragons: Trent Merrin is a good chance of being a late inclusion despite not being named on Tuesday due to an ankle injury. Josh Dugan has had a rest from training this week but will play. Dan Hunt and Jack Stockwell remain in some doubt with groin and foot injuries respectively. 

Storm: No changes expected, with Will Chambers unlikely to recover from his knee laceration and Cooper Cronk given "no chance" of coming back this early from his broken arm, according to coach Craig Bellamy.
