Sea Eagles: The Sea Eagles' forwards depth will be tested with Martin Taupau and Addin Fonua-Blake both suspended for two weeks and Lloyd Perrett out with an eye-socket injury. No late changes expected.
Rabbitohs: Adam Reynolds is pushing to make an early return from appendicitis at halfback, with Luke Kelly set to drop out of the side if the first-choice halfback can prove his fitness. Robert Jennings has been named in the reserves and could come in for centre Hymel Hunt who suffered a head knock last week.
Raiders: Expected to be 1-17 with fullback Jack Wighton returning from illness and prop Junior Paulo back from suspension.
Sharks updated: Fullback Gerard Beale has been a late withdrawal with a hamstring injury. Centre Jack Bird could move to fullback.
Wests Tigers: Some minor concerns over winger Moses Suli (cramps) and lock Elijah Taylor (ear), but both are expected to play in an unchanged line-up.
Panthers: Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is a chance of making an early return from a foot injury and play on the wing in place of Dylan Edwards. Bryce Cartwright is expected to take his place in the starting side.
Dragons: Coach Paul McGregor will keep the same 17 after his side's impressive Round 1 win over the Panthers.
Eels: No changes expected to the starting 13, but David Gower is pushing for a spot on the interchange bench.
