NRL Late Mail: Round 18
All the latest team changes and rumours ahead of Round 18 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Roosters: No late changes expected, with Eloni Vunakece and Victor Radley dropping out of the Tricolours' squad 24 hours prior to kick-off.
Rabbitohs: Should be unchanged, Cameron Murray and Jack Gosiewski dropped off the reserves list when the squad was cut to 19.
Panthers: James Fisher-Harris could be a late inclusion after being named among the reserves, Sitaleki Akauola is the man most likely to make way. Tyrone Peachey will move to the centres for Dean Whare (jaw) and Mitch Rein will return at hooker.
Sea Eagles: No late changes expected with Jarrad Kennedy to start for Lewis Brown (knee) and Darcy Lussick replacing Jake Trbojevic at lock.
Storm: The Storm expect both Jesse Bromwich and Tohu Harris will be fit to face the Eels, with Nate Myles to feature for the first time in Melbourne colours from the interchange bench. Mid-season recruit Robbie Rochow could also feature after being included in the 21-man squad.
Eels: Should be as per program, with Manu Ma'u named despite picking up a knee injury in last week's golden point win over the Bulldogs.
Bulldogs: No late changes expected for what will be Josh Reynolds' last game at Belmore Sports Ground in a blue and white jersey.
Knights: Luke Yates is set to return ahead of schedule via the interchange, with Jamie Buhrer again named to start on the bench, but there could be some late positional changes.
