Friday late mail: Round 22
All the expected team changes and injury rumours heading into the 22nd round of the 2017 Telstra Premiership season.
Dragons: Russell Packer is out with a knee injury, with he and Luciano Leilua dropping out of the game-day squad. Tyson Frizell is likely to play despite an ankle complaint.
Rabbitohs: Skipper Sam Burgess is set to play despite a ribs injury, and fellow injury concerns Angus Crichton and Adam Reynolds are right to go. Jack Gosiewski and Campbell Graham drop out of the 19-man squad.
Cowboys: Expected to be 1-17, with Shaun Fensom returning from injury and Javid Bowen and Kalyn Ponga dropping out of the initial 21-man squad.
Storm: Billy Slater will play after being rested last week following a head knock. Jahrome Hughes is a chance of grabbing the five-eighth role ahead of Ryley Jacks after impressing at fullback last week.
Knights: No changes expected for Newcastle after last week's win over the Dragons.
Warriors: Expected to be 1-17, with Bodene Thompson sidelined with a pectoral injury.
Titans: Expected to run out as named, with Jarryd Hayne to start at fullback and Tyrone Roberts coming off the bench.
Broncos: Corey Oates is expected to makes his return from a staph infection on the wing in place of David Mead. Ben Hunt is set to start at hooker in place of the injured Andrew McCullough, but could share the role with Kodi Nikorima.
Sharks: Fa'amanu Brown is set to play as named in the halves after passing his concussion test. Jack Bird has recovered from a sternum injury.
Raiders: No changes expected, witih Josh Papalii and Jordan Rapana returning from suspension.
Sea Eagles: Dylan Walker is good to go despite an ankle injury. Lewis Brown could start in the second row as he did last week, with Shaun Lane to drop back to the bench.
Roosters: Jake Friend is a chance of making his return from a broken hand and starting at hooker in place of Victor Radley.
Panthers: Matt Moylan is some chance of making his return from his hamstring injury at five-eighth, but with Penrith playing well without him in recent weeks they're unlikely to risk their skipper.
Wests Tigers: No changes expected.
