NRL line-ups revealed for Round Three

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

Last week, the Roosters maintained their place at the top of the table with a dominant 40-6 win over Wests Tigers, which also saw Brett Morris become the first man ever to score hat-tricks in the first two rounds of the competition.

Penrith, Canberra, Newcastle and Parramatta also claimed victories to keep up their flawless starts to the campaign.

The Queensland derby, meanwhile, was one to forget for Brisbane, who have now won just once in their last 20 games after a 28-16 defeat to Gold Coast.

This weekend is kicked off by a repeat of last year’s Grand Final, with runners-up Penrith hosting Premiers Melbourne at Panthers Stadium on Thursday at 9:05am (UK time).
