EELS V RAIDERS, 7:50PM
EELS: Nobody named is in the casualty ward so no changes expected in this one, should be 1-7. Makahesi Makatoa and Joey Lussick were the first men cut. Update: 1-17, Bryce Cartwright 18th man.
RAIDERS: Similarly appearing 1-17. I normally caution for a swap in the forward pack with bench players however Siliva Havili has already been cut and the makeup of the bench looks like it’s lacking forward depth with both Tom Starling and Matt Timoka there. Trey Mooney was also trimmed 24 hours out. Update: Josh Papali’i bench, Joe Tapine prop, Ryan James 18th man
