Penrith are expected to play majority of their representative stars, but one is highly likely to sit Friday’s game out.

Meanwhile, Roosters coach Trent Robinson has given an update on the likelihood of his skipper James Tedesco backing up.

FRIDAY

Manly Sea Eagles vs North Queensland Cowboys at 4 Pines Park, 6pm

Sea Eagles team: 14. Dylan Walker 2. Jason Saab 3. Brad Parker 4. Morgan Harper 5. Reuben Garrick 6. Kieran Foran 7. Daly Cherry-Evans 8. Taniela Paseka 9. Lachlan Croker 10. Martin Taupau 11. Haumole Olakau’atu 12. Karl Lawton 13. Jake Trbojevic 15. Moses Suli 16. Ben Trbojevic 17. Toafofoa Sipley 18. Kurt De Luis 19. Cade Cust 20. Christian Tuipulotu 21. Jorge Taufua 22. Tolutau Koula

Players cut: 1. Tom Trbojevic

Late mail: After a mammoth man of the match effort in Origin Tom Trbojevic will be rested for this round. His Origin comrades Daly Cherry-Evans and Jake Trbojevic, though, will line up for Manly. Dylan Walker is the likely man to fill in at fullback, opening up a spot on the bench. Kurt De Luis, a prop, is firming to fill that spot to make his NRL debut.

Cowboys team: 1. Valentine Holmes 18. Justin O’Neill 3. Javid Bowen 4. Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow 5. Murray Taulagi 6. Scott Drinkwater 7. Tom Dearden 8. Tom Gilbert 9. Reece Robson 10. Jordan McLean 11. Shane Wright 12. Coen Hess 13. Jason Taumalolo 14. Jake Granville 15. Peter Hola 16. Lachlan Burr 17. Francis Molo 19. Ben Condon 20. Daejarn Asi 21. Corey Jensen 22. Kyle Laybutt

Players cut: 2. Kyle Feldt

Late mail: Valentine Holmes is expected to back up, however Todd Payten confirmed on Thursday that Kyle Feldt will miss the game. “We’ve left him out. He copped a knee in the back and there was quite a bit of a bleed… I just thought with the travel, where our team is at and how we’ve trained through the week it’s just a cleaner preparation.” Payten also confirmed that Justin O’Neill will come into the side but wouldn’t reveal whether he would slot onto the wing or play in the centres.

Cronulla Sharks vs Penrith Panthers at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, 7.55pm

Sharks team: 1. Will Kennedy 2. Connor Tracey 3. Will Chambers 4. Jesse Ramien 5. Ronaldo Mulitalo 6. Matt Moylan 7. Shaun Johnson 8. Aiden Tolman 9. Blayke Brailey 10. Aaron Woods 11. Briton Nikora 12. Wade Graham 13. Toby Rudolf 14. Braydon Trindall 15. Siosifa Talakai 16. Jack Williams 17. Andrew Fifita 18. Teig Wilton 19. Chad Townsend 20. Franklin Pele 21. Mawene Hiroti

Players cut:

Late mail: Andrew Fifita has been named on the bench with Franklin Pele in the reserves, however the two may be a late swap like there were for Cronulla’s last game.

Panthers team: 1. Dylan Edwards 2. Charlie Staines 3. Stephen Crichton 4. Paul Momirovski 5. Robert Jennings 6. Matt Burton 7. Tyrone May 8. Moses Leota 9. Apisai Koroisau 10. James Fisher-Harris 11. Viliame Kikau 12. Scott Sorensen 13. Matthew Eisenhuth 14. Mitch Kenny 15. J’maine Hopgood 16. Spencer Leniu 17. Izack Tago 18. Isaah Yeo 19. Nathan Cleary 20. Liam Martin 21. Jarome Luai 22. Kurt Capewell 23. Brian To’o

Players cut:

Late mail: Coach Ivan Cleary was coy when asked on Thursday if any of his Origin players will back up, however he did say “they all pulled up OK.”It’s understood Jarome Luai and Liam Martin will back up, but Nathan Cleary and Brian To’o are expected to be rested. Cleary suffered a nasty cut on his cheek and had to be stitched up at half time, while To’o deserves to put his feet up after running the most metres out of any player on the field. Isaah Yeo punched out 80 minutes for the Blues and is expected to also be rested. Api Koroisau wasn’t called on in Origin so will be right to play. Luai will bump Tyrone May back to the bench with Mitch Kenny dropping out of the side.

Titans team: 1. Alexander Brimson 2. Greg Marzhew 3. Brian Kelly 4. Patrick Herbert 5. Phillip Sami 6. Ashley Taylor 7. Jamal Fogarty 8. Jarrod Wallace 9. Erin Clark 10. Moeaki Fotuaika 11.

Players cut:

Late mail:AJ Brimson will be right to play after only getting 16 minutes for Queensland on Wednesday night. David Fifita and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui both got through Origin unscathed and are likely to play, however Moeaki Fotuaika will miss the clash after accepting an early guilty plea for his late shot on Latrell Mitchell. He will be sideline for just one game.

Roosters team: 1. James Tedesco 2. Daniel Tupou 3. Josh Morris 4. Joseph Manu 5. Matt Ikuvalu 6. Lachlan Lam 7. Sam Walker 8. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves 9. Ben Marschke 10. Siosiua Taukeiaho 11.

Robinson also revealed the star No.1 will fly straight to the Gold Coast from Townsville. “He’s good, he’s taken some niggles into the game, but he’s pulled up quite well today. We’ve got a couple of our staff up there with them so he’s going to fly to the Gold Coast,” he said.
