NRL line-ups revealed for Round Five

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

Penrith and Parramatta retained their 100% records last week with wins over Manly and Wests respectively, with the Panthers topping the table on points difference.

There were also convincing victories for three other teams, as South Sydney nilled Canterbury by 38, Melbourne demolished Brisbane 40-6 and Cronulla thrashed North Queensland 48-10.

After their respective defeats, the Sea Eagles, Bulldogs and Cowboys remain the only clubs yet to register a competition point so far this campaign.

This round is kicked off by two teams with contrasting fortunes, as the Rabbitohs host the Broncos at Stadium Australia on Thursday at the later than usual time of 10:50am (UK time).

There are several mouth-watering ties coming later in the weekend, with the Panthers facing fifth-placed Canberra on Friday and the Eels hosting St George in sixth on Sunday.
