NRL Late mail: Round 11
Team changes and injury news heading into Round 11 of the 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership.
Broncos: Alex Glenn and Andrew McCullough got through fitness tests during the week and will be right to play. Corey Parker is still stuggling with a foot complaint, meaning Jordan Kahu will be taking the shots at goal.
Cowboys: Expect the usual late change with Rory Kostjasyn switching to the starting side at hooker and Jake Granville moving back to the bench. It'll be a big game for Johnathan Thurston who celebrates his 250th NRL match in Cowboys colours.
Wests Tigers: No changes expected at this stage, with off-season recruit Matt Ballin finally set to play his first game for the Tigers.
Knights: Newcastle have named Trent Hodkinson, Sam Mataora and Nathan Ross, but they'll need to prove their fitness before kick-off, as will Jacob Saifiti – who could be a late omission.
Warriors: Simon Mannering returns from a mouth injury, no other changes expected.
Raiders: No changes expected at this stage, although they did travel to New Plymouth, Taranaki with 19 men.
Sharks: Paul Gallen has been in a bit of doubt this week, but should be right to take his place in the team.
Sea Eagles: Steve Matai and Jamie Buhrer will be back, while other stars like Brett Stewart will be given two weeks with Manly's upcoming bye before making their return.
Panthers: James Segeyaro was cleared of a concussion and will be right to play.
Titans: Nathan Peats will play his first game for the Titans, but will come off the bench – expect Nathan Friend to play most of the time, with Peats given time to adjust to his new club.
Bulldogs: No changes expected, however Chase Stanley could come in late to replace Kerrod Holland.
Roosters: It looks like Ryan Matterson will partner Mitchell Pearce in the halves with Jackson Hastings set to miss out.
Eels: Kieran Foran is likely to return at halfback for the blue and golds, with no other changes expected.
Storm: Tohu Harris has been named several times at centre, but an hour before kick-off he usually gets switched to the backrow, if that happens yet again, expect Kenny Bromwich to move to the bench and Ryan Morgan to make his club debut in the centres.
