NRL line-ups revealed for Round 11

All 16 NRL clubs have confirmed their 21-man squads for this weekend’s 11th round of the 2021 season.

It was Magic Round last week but the headlines centred around the referees, who dished out a total of 17 cards – 14 yellow and three red – across the weekend primarily as a result of stricter laws on contact with the head.

Despite the disciplinary drama, it was a successful week for the top five, with Penrith, Parramatta, Melbourne, South Sydney and Sydney all picking up comfortable wins.

Elsewhere, 12-man Canberra came from behind to snatch a 20-18 victory over Canterbury, who continue to struggle at the bottom of the table, while Wests’ 36-18 win over Newcastle nudged them above Cronulla and Brisbane into 13th, just two points adrift of the top eight.

This week is kicked off by the Cowboys hosting the Knights at Queensland Country Bank Stadium on Thursday at 10:50am (UK time), while arguably the tie of the round sees the Rabbitohs face the Panthers on Sunday.
