FRIDAYStorm vs Raiders im Suncorp Stadium
Last Storm Team: 1. Ryan Papenhuyzen 2. Suliasi Vunivalu 3. Brenko Lee 4. Justin Olam 5. Josh Addo-Carr 6. Cameron Munster 7. Jahrome Hughes 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Cameron Smith 10. Christian Welch 11. Felise Kaufusi 12. Kenneath Bromwich 13. Nelson Asofa-Solomona 14. Brandon Smith 15. Tino Fa’asuamaleaui 17. Nicholas Hynes 22. Chris Lewis
Team tips: All eyes will be on Cameron Munster as he attempts to overcome a knee injury sustained in the first week of the final against the Eels. “He looks really good, the medical staff are very confident that he will be right for Friday,” said the club’s football manager Frank Ponissi last week. “He’s really well drawn.” Munster received scans on his knee, but no serious damage was found. It’s the second MCL injury of the year. Elsewhere, Tui Kamikamica (ankle) and Tom Eisenhuth (calf) both have a chance to play for the storm. Vice-captain Dale Finucane (Kalf) suffered a setback while training last week. Ponissi admitted that his involvement lasted longer. “The news is not so good for Dale, he is an opportunity but it is unlikely that he will play in the preliminary round,” added Ponissi.
Last Raiders team: 1. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad 2. Semi Valemi 3. Jarrod Croker 4. Jordan Rapana 5. Nick Cotric 6. Jack Wighton 7. George Williams 8. Josh Papalii 14. Silber Havili 16. Hudson Young 11. John Bateman 12. Elliott Whitehead 13. Joseph Tapine 9. Tom Starling 10. Iosia Soliola 15. Dunamis Lui 17. Corey Harawira-Naera
Team tips: Ricky Stuart will likely believe in the same 17 who did the work against the roosters. The Raiders trainer has been known to be tinkering with his home page so he may be able to upgrade his first XIII if he faces the storm.

Panthers versus Rabbitohs in the ANZ stadium
Last Panther team: 1. Dylan Edwards 2. Josh Mansour 3. Brent Naden 4. Stephen Crichton 5. Brian To’o 6. Jarome Luai 7. Nathan Cleary 8. James Tamou 9. Apisai Koroisau 10. James Fisher-Harris 11. Viliame Kikau 12 Liam Martin 13. Isaah Yeo 14. Tyrone 15. Mai Kurt Capewell 16. Moses Leota 17. Zane Tetevano
Team tips: The big defeat for the Panthers is star second rower Viliame Kikau, who was canceled from the pre-finals due to a suspension for a dangerous throw against Jared Waerea-Hargreaves in the first week of the final. Kurt Capewell will likely start out with Matt Burton, Mitch Kenny, Dean Whare, or Spencer Leinu vying for a bank role. Leinu is expected to get the berth as Penrith already has a utility in Tyrone May in the bank. Charlie Staines (hamstring) is the only injury for the panthers, almost all of whom are in full strength.
Rabbitohs Team: 1. Corey Allan 2. Alex Johnston 3. Campbell Graham 4. Däne Gagai 5. Jaxson Paulo 6. Cody Walker 7. Adam Reynolds 8. Tevita Tatola 9. Damien Cook 10. Thomas Burgess 11. Jaydn Su’A 12. Bayley Sironen 13. Cameron Murray 14. Mark Nicholls 15. Liam Knight 16. Jed Cartwright 17. Keaon Koloamatangi
Team tips: Maroons hopeful Jayden Su’A sustained an ankle injury against the eels but continued to fight valiantly. However, the Rabbitohs will still be sweating next week if it swells up after the game. James Roberts still faces an indefinite return after a chest injury and is not risked in such a big game.
