Sea Eagles: A number of late changes in the backline for Des Hasler with Reuben Garrick going from wing to fullback and Dylan Walker shifting to the bench. Moses Suli goes from the bench to the centres and Brad Parker pushes out to the wing.

Kurt De Luis is the new face on the bench making his NRL debut.

Tom Trbojevic is being rested but Manly's other Origin reps Daly Cherry-Evans and Jake Trbojevic will both back up.

Kieran Foran (hand) makes a welcome return from injury at five-eighth while Ben Trbojevic (head knock) will play after passing concussion protocols during the bye period.

Jorge Taufua and Tolotau Koula were omitted from the extended squad 24 hours before kick-off and Christian Tuipulotu was the last man cut on game day. Cade Cust is 18th man.

Sea Eagles winger Jason Saab has scored 11 tries in his past eight games.

Cowboys: Winger Kyle Feldt won't play after copping lower-back bruising in his State of Origin debut for Queensland. Justin O'Neill returns from a knee injury and slots in on the wing while Valentine Holmes is backing up from Origin at fullback.

Coen Hess will start in the second row having been in Queensland's wider squad but left out of the final 18.

"Feldty copped a knee in the back. It was quite a bit of a bleed," Payten said on Thursday.

"We could potentially give him another 24 hours and see how he pulled up and make a call then. But I just thought with the travel, where our team's at and how we've trained through the week, it's just a cleaner preparation."

Ben Condon and Kyle Laybutt dropped out of the extended squad 24 hours before kick-off. Corey Jensen was the last man cut an hour before kick-off and Daejarn Asi is 18th man.

The Cowboys have won their past three games at Manly's home ground.

Sharks: The Sharks are 1-17 with no late changes.

Back-to-back wins, a week off to freshen up and five players returning from injury or suspension combine for the perfect preparation as Cronulla gear up for competition leaders Penrith.

The only change to the side which downed the Titans in round 12 is Andrew Fifita joining the bench at the expense of Franklin Pele.

Chad Townsend and Mawene Hiroti were the first two players omitted 24 hours before kick-off. Teig Wilton has completed his suspension and is 18th man while prop Braden Hamlin-Uele (ankle) is at least another week away from returning.

Panthers: Origin reps Nathan Cleary, Jarome Luai, Isaah Yeo, Brian To'o and Kurt Capewell are all being rested but Liam Martin will back up, taking his place on the bench in jersey 20.

J'maine Hopgood has been promoted to the starting side an hour before kick-off with Matt Eisenhuth going to the bench. Brent Naden is 18th man.

Blues 18th man Api Koroisau is in the starting side, replacing Mitch Kenny who goes to the bench.

Nathan Cleary suffered a deep laceration to his cheek which required a number of stitches at half-time in Origin I but he suffered no structural damage and To'o required stitches to a cut above his eye and has a corked knee. 

Prop Moses Leota's return from suspension sees Spencer Leniu drop out of the side along with Jaeman Salmon and Lindsay Smith.

Eels: Parramatta will start 1-17, with Blues prop Junior Paulo looks to back up after remaining in the squad on Saturday when Blake Ferguson and Jakob Arthur were the first two players cut.

Will Smith will be the 18th man.

Coach Brad Arthur looks likely to make a late change and include Will Smith as a back-up for Joey Lussick, who has only played 22 minutes of first grade this year.

Lussick has been named to start at hooker after Reed Mahoney picked up a shoulder injury last week.

The Eels have won their past six games against the Wests Tigers.

Wests Tigers: Moses Mbye has been ruled out after failing to recover from the knee injury he suffered last week against the Panthers. Billy Walters will play five-eighth in jersey 19.

Joe Ofahengaue played 41 minutes for Queensland in Origin I and looks likely to back up.

Michael Chee-Kam will be the 18th man.

Like the Eels, Michael Maguire has four big men on the bench. Thomas Mikaele (knee) is facing at least a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a medial injury.

Kelima Tuilagi and Mbye were the two players omitted from the squad 24 hours before kick-off.

Wests Tigers centre Tommy Talau has scored eight tries in eight games at Bankwest Stadium.

Bulldogs: Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is out, with Tuipulotu Katoa to start at fullback. Jeremy Marshall-King (foot) returns from injury but Lachlan Lewis (ribs) and Corey Allan (shoulder) are more likely in round 15.

Kyle Flanagan will be the 18th man and Corey Waddell will start from the interchange in No.20.

Along with Watene-Zelezniak, Joe Stimson was left out 24 hours before the match.

Brad Deitz (hamstring) and fellow dummy-half Jackson Topine drop out of the 21-man squad. The club is not impacted by State of Origin and should be 1-17.

Bulldogs centre Nick Cotric has scored four tries in six games against the Dragons.

Dragons: Tariq Sims will start for the Dragons, five days after he played for NSW in Townsville. That moves Josh Kerr back to the bench and Jack Bird remains in the back row.

Poasa Faamausili will be the 18th man for Anthony Griffin's team. 

Adam Clune and Billy Burns were the two players left out on the eve of the match.
