NRL Late Mail: Round 12
The late changes and team rumours heading into the 12th round of the 2015 Telstra Premiership season.
Panthers v Eels
Panthers: No changes expected for the home side, who welcome back halfback Peter Wallace and winger Josh Mansour from injury.
Eels: Will Hopoate came through Origin I injury-free, meaning he'll take his place in the Parramatta backline on Friday night, with no other late changes anticipated.
Titans v Rabbitohs
Titans: Nate Myles should back up for the Gold Coast, with the Titans skipper making it through Origin unscathed.
Rabbitohs: UPDATE: Greg Inglis (illness) is a likely starter, while Ben Lowe is in doubt with a knee injury in South Sydney's Round 11 win over the Eels. Should he fail to recover in time, Chris Grevsmuhl is likely to join the 17 after being named 18th man on Tuesday.
Raiders v Broncos
Raiders: No late changes expected for Canberra, who will be boosted by the return of Jack Wighton and Sam Williams from injury.
Broncos: UPDATE: Sam Thaiday and Justin Hodges are set to be rested, while fellow Queensland stars Corey Parker, Darius Boyd, Matt Gillett and Josh McGuire should be fine to play after getting through Origin I.
Cowboys v Sea Eagles
Cowboys: UPDATE: Matt Scott (cork) has completed the team's final training run on Friday and will take his place in the run-on side. The bench is all-but finalised with Ben Hannant, John Asiata and Sam Hoare to accompany either Rory Kostjasyn or Ray Thompson, with Ben Spina to drop out of the final 17. Prop James Tamou and halves Johnathan Thurston and Michael Morgan pulled up well from Origin I and should be fine to play.
Sea Eagles: Feleti Mateo is the only concern for the Sea Eagles, with the bench forward unlikely to face the Cowboys.
Warriors v Knights
Warriors: The home side should be 1-17, with Ryan Hoffman and Jacob Lillyman right to go after playing on opposing sides in Origin I. Sam Tomkins will return from a lengthy stint on the sidelines, while Manu Vatuvei should be fine to take his place on the wing.
Knights: Jeremy Smith is set to be ruled out for Newcastle, with Joseph Tapine the man to replace him in the 17 after being named 18th man on Tuesday. Beau Scott should be good to go after playing in Origin I.
Dragons v Sharks
Dragons: Josh Dugan and Trent Merrin both came through Origin I without injury, while Merrin also avoided suspension for a dangerous throw charge from Wednesday night.
Sharks: Paul Gallen is some chance of returning ahead of schedule, with Dragons coach Paul McGregor stating he expects the Sharks skipper to play in Round 12. Ricky Leutele may also potentially return and slot into the centres at the expense of Blake Ayshford.
Roosters v Storm
Roosters: Should be unchanged, with Mitchell Pearce, Michael Jennings, Boyd Cordner, Daniel Tupou and Aidan Guerra all injury-free following Origin I.
Storm: Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Billy Slater and Will Chambers should all be fine to back up from Origin as well, with the extended seven-man bench needing to be trimmed to four on Monday night.
