NRL Late Mail | Round 16

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has been forced into making some changes to the final 17-man squad ahead of kick off against the Melbourne Storm at Adelaide Oval.

Siosiua Taukeiaho has been ruled out of this clash due to a minor hamstring complaint after the final training session, which will see young gun Nat Butcher play his first NRL game of the season coming off the bench. 

Ryan Matterson will come into the starting side in the second row in his place, shuffling Aidan Guerra to the lock position. 

Mitchell Cornish will be 18th man and Lindsay Collins comes out of the side.
