NRL line-ups revealed for Round Nine

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

Penrith extended their unbeaten start to the season last week with a 28-16 win over a plucky Manly side.

Sydney, meanwhile, overcame another two serious injuries to come out on top against Newcastle, while fellow title-challengers Parramatta beat Canterbury 32-10.

At the opposite end of the table Brisbane and Wests, meanwhile, claimed their second victories of 2021, defeating Gold Coast and St George respectively.
