Squad Notes

David Nofoaluma and Keith Galloway have been named on an extended bench for this weekend’s clash, with Head Coach Mick Potter to make a final announcement at Saturday’s captains run. Both players are recovering from injuries and need to pass late fitness tests to be available for selection. Liam Fulton will undergo a late test this weekend to determine whether he has fully recovered from his concussion knock, but staff are optimistic that he will play. Bodene Thompson has been declared fit to start from an earlier hand injury.

 

NRL.com’s Lone Scout Says...

“ It was always a chance after all the hype, but Luke Brooks ($171,800) didn't quite live up to expectations on his first display as the Tigers' first-choice halfback.

His lowly 4-point Fantasy score will have a lot of coaches searching for a replacement this week, but it's worth remembering the potential that made Brooks such a popular rookie in the first place. James Tedesco ($217,908) looks to be undervalued after an eye-catching 51 point performance against the Dragons, which suggests his form at the Auckland Nines could be the norm this season…"
