Cory Paterson is expected to drop out of the extended bench.

 

NRL.com’s Lone Scout Says…

"Tackle-busting centre Tim Simona ($262,400) and hard-working back-rower Liam Fulton ($320,619) return from injury. The Tigers routed the Gold Coast on Sunday but are likely to have to spend more time defending against Souths this week.

"Luke Brooks ($178,863) repaid the faith of the Fantasy coaches who held onto him with a 51-point display, playing a starring role in a surprise Tigers win and burying the memory of his single-digit Round 1 score. His partner in crime James Tedesco ($253,929) grew in value by a whopping $36,000 after a sensational 72-point effort.

"It's early days but Tedesco's starting to look like a genuine gun at fullback this year, although his price is rising fast for those who don't have him yet. And of course the rock-solid Rabbitohs may well bring Tedesco and Brooks back down to earth on Friday night..."
