NRL Late Mail: Round 19
All the latest team changes, injury news and rumours ahead of Round 19 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Warriors: Set to be unchanged as the Warriors prepare to farewell club legend Manu Vatuvei. Tevita Satae and Mason Lino were cut from the squad 24 hours prior to kick-off.
Panthers: While yet to be confirmed by the Panthers there's talk Matt Moylan will miss Friday night's clash with a hamstring injury. Tyrone May (NRL debut) will replace Moylan in the halves if he's ruled out. Viliame Kikau and Sitaleki Akauola were dropped from the 21-man squad named on Tuesday.
Raiders: Hooker Josh Hodgson will play after his injured calf ticked all the boxes in the captain's run.
Dragons: Former Raider Paul Vaughan is set to be a surprise inclusion, after he recovered ahead of schedule from a calf injury. Josh Dugan injured his groin in the Origin decider but also looks set to take on his former club. Tyson Frizell wasn't named on Tuesday and won't play.
Knights: Look likely to be unchanged with State of Origin man of the series Dane Gagai right to back up after Wednesday night.
Broncos: UPDATE: Anthony Milford is set to return against the Knights with either Benji Marshall or Kodi Nikorima to make way, while Matt Gillett and Josh McGuire are both set to be rested after State of Origin III. Debutant Jamayne Isaako is set to play fullback with Jordan Kahu switching to the wing.
Titans: Set to be as per program with Queensland try-scorer Jarrod Wallace and Blues pair Nathan Peats and Jarryd Hayne all fit to back up.
Sharks: There could be mass changes for the Sharks, with Shane Flanagan yet to decide whether he'll rest any of his Origin stars. Andrew Fifita didn't travel with the squad to the Gold Coast as he awaits the birth of his third child, but will fly up on game day. Valentine Holmes will play, but Wade Graham, James Maloney and Jack Bird could be rested. James Segeyaro is set to return from a broken arm, with Nu Brown likely to revert to the halves if Maloney doesn't play and Segeyaro joins the 17.
Sea Eagles: No late changes expected with Jake Trbojevic fine to play after the Origin decider.
Wests Tigers: James Tedesco and Aaron Woods look set to take to the field after making through Wednesday night unscathed.
Rabbitohs: Should be as per program for the trip to Cairns.
Cowboys: Michael Morgan, Gavin Cooper and Coen Hess should all play following Queensland's Game Three success.
