NRL line-ups revealed for Round 21

All 16 NRL clubs have confirmed their 21-man squads for this weekend’s round 21 fixtures.

Last week saw Melbourne assert their dominance at the top of the table with a 37-10 victory over title rivals Penrith, while Sydney are now in touching distance of the top four after beating Parramatta 28-0.

The Panthers now find themselves level on points with South Sydney, who cruised past St George to claim a 50-14 victory.

Manly’s 40-22 triumph over Cronulla, meanwhile, means they are one win away from becoming the sixth club to mathematically secure their spot in the finals.

Just below them, the race for the final two places is well and truly on, with the Sharks, Raiders, Dragons, Titans and Knights all level on 18 points, with the latter two having claimed victories at the weekend.

This week’s action is kicked off by Newcastle facing Brisbane at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Thursday at 10:50am (UK time).
