Sea Eagles

Garrick  starts at fullback again for Tommy Turbo. Moses Suli returns from a  finger injury with Elliot dropping back to extended reserves. Garrick  was ordinary at fullback last week with -20 in negatives. We have him  projected at 38.5 including goal kicking if he holds the spot. Elliot  was solid for Trbojevic last year though and could be recalled at any  time.

Croker  scored 29 including a Try Save last week. He kicked for just 49m,  justifying our recommendations to stay away. He could lose the spot to  Cust at any stage.

Knights

Welcome  back Bradman Best. As predicted it's Shibasaki who makes way and Tuala  who holds the other Centre spot. Tim Glasby (Concussion) is being rested  for the week. Ese'ese starts at Lock. Pasami Saulo comes on to the  bench in his place. Knights have Barnett close to returning along with  Watson. So Saulo should not be considered at this point.

Is Sione Mata'utia a revived fantasy keeper? Or is he on borrowed time  with troops returning? He only played 59 minutes last week despite the  loss of Glasby after just 21 minutes playing time. At this stage, let  the dust settle over the coming weeks, make money elsewhere, and pick  him up as a Centre Keeper down the line if he proves to be so, that's  our thinking.

Tex Hoy got some extra playing time last week but will soon make way for  Connor Watson. His game time week to week could be minimal as well.
