NRL line-ups revealed for Round Eight

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

Last week saw Canterbury claim their first win of the season as they held on to beat Cronulla 18-12.

They remain bottom of the table on points difference but are now level on league points with Brisbane and Wests.

The Panthers are still yet to taste defeat in 2021 after a convincing 24-6 victory over Newcastle, while Parramatta and South Sydney retained their second and third spots with wins over the Broncos and Gold Coast respectively.

The Rabbitohs are one of the teams kicking off this round, as they travel to face eighth-placed Canberra at GIO Stadium on Thursday at 10:50am (UK time).
