NRL line-ups revealed for Round 8

All 16 NRL clubs have confirmed their for this weekend’s Round 8 fixtures.

League leaders Parramatta were pushed close by Canberra last week, with a Golden Point drop goal from Clint Gutherson clinching the Eels a 25-24 win. There were also victories for Penrith, Sydney and Melbourne, who are all still within two points of the leaders, but Newcastle’s loss to North Queensland saw them slip into fifth.

Gold Coast picked up their second win of the season over Brisbane, who continue to struggle having lost all five of their games since the season resumed.

This week, some clubs will return to their home grounds for the first time since before lockdown, as the NRL takes another step in the direction of normality.

This week’s fixtures are kicked off by the Storm and the Roosters, who will face off at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday at 10:50am (UK time).

All eight games will be shown live on Sky Sports Arena throughout the weekend.

Reported Leeds Rhinos target Jai Field is set to make his debut for Parramatta against North Queensland on Friday.
