Team Talk | Round 14

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named a strong 23 man squad ahead of Saturday's clash with the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium.

NRL Clubs that have had up to four representatives named in State Of Origin are entitled to add an  additional two members to their squad in Round 14.

The side goes back to full strength this week, with all four State Of Origin representatives named to line up against the Knights. 

Ryan Matterson has not been named, which sees Siosiua Taukeiaho starting in the second row and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves retain his spot in the starting forward pack. 

With the successful return of Daniel Tupou in Round 13, he retains his spot on the wing outside Latrell Mitchell and Mitch Aubusson moves back to the bench. 

Nat Butcher, Lindsay Collins and Frank-Paul Nuuausala go back to the reserves after lining up against the Wests Tigers.
