Thursday Night Late Mail & Chat – Round 16

This post contains all your Thursday night chat and mail needs. The remainder of the late mail will be posted tomorrow morning and the banner will be revealed Friday evening!

ROOSTERS V STORM, 7:50PM

ROOSTERS: James Tedesco and Angus Crichton are both expected to back up from Origin while Sam Walker and Sitili Tupouniua should both also be right to go after missing their last match with shoulder and foot injuries respectively, particularly for Tupouniua’s 50th game. Adam Keighran was cut from the side 24 hours out with Ben Thomas joining the interchange, however Coach Robinson confirmed a couple of days ago (via Dan Walsh) that Drew Hutchison has recovered from his busted rubs and punctured lung so he could nab that final bench spot. Freddy Lussick was also cut from the extended squad Wednesday night. Update: Ikavalu drops to 18th man, Suaalii moves to wing and Hutchison bench.

STORM: The 24 hour update was somewhat telling for the Storm with who dropped out and who remains. Cooper Johns, Jordan Grant, Marion Seve and Tepai Moeroa were all trimmed from the (extra) extended bench, leaving Dean Ieremia and Trent Loiero. This says to me that one of Christian Welch/Felise Kaufusi, along with Josh Addo-Carr, could be in line for rests after Origin, while Cameron Munster should be good to go. Of the forwards, given Welch has been banged up for a few weeks now I’d say he’s likely more likely to drop out and I’m merely speculating on Addo-Carr due to Loiero’s continued presence. Update: Kamikamica prop, Welch bench. Loiero 18th man.

NRL physio reporting Nikorima out. Possible ankle injury. Not serious.

Would a banner of the whole Storm squad have helped the Roosters tonight? Asking as a supporter.
