Melbourne Storm vs Wests Tigers, 7.50 pm (AAMI Park)
Only the one late change so far for the Storm, with Sandor Earl coming onto the interchange to provide cover for the outside backs at the expense of Patrick Kaufusi who drops out of the squad. Tino Faasuamaleaui was the other man to drop off the extended bench 24 hours out.
Coach Maguire appears set to stick with what worked so well for the Tigers in last week’s demolition of the Panthers with no late changes expected, although he could again opt to bring Mahe Fonua into right centre and switch Esan Marsters to the left as he did in Magic Round. Oliver Clark and out of favour former cheapie Luke Garner were omitted Wednesday night.
Thursday: Fine weather is expected for the Thursday night match in Melbourne, with a moderate to high amount of dew on the playing surface.
