The penultimate round is upon us, with 2 rounds remaining Norths have surged ahead to the top of the ladder and will enjoy consecutive home games to complete the regular season.
The Two Blues are missing their 2 English recruits who've been key to a number of their upset wins this season.
The cavalry has started to arrive over the past couple of rounds as Brodie Leber, Reece Mau'u & Charlie Jeavons-Fellows returned from injury. This week sees a full complement of players available, bolstered by the return of Hugh Sinclair (Waratahs / Aus A), Angus Sinclair (Ankle) and Boston Kerapa (Knee)
Charlie Jeavons-Fellows swaps starting roles with Gary Bautz, the two have worked in great tandem over the past month and provides great depth to a squad late in the season.
Angus will make his return from an ankle injury via the reserves, an injury which has kept him sidelined since round 8.
IN: Hugh Sinclair, Charlie Jeavons-Fellows, Angus Sinclair (Reserves), Boston Kerapa (Reserves)
