NRL 2017 ROUND 19 SUPERCOACH PREVIEW

Warriors v Panthers
The Warriors welcome back Solomone Kata (35) to the centres which pushes David Fusitu’a (35) to the wing and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad out of the side. Also out are injured pair Nathaniel Roache and Albert Vete with Isaac Luke (47) named at HOK but unlikely to play, reserves Jazz Tevaga (43) and Mason Lino (29) are alternatives for coach Stephen Kearney while Ligia Sao (18) rejoins the bench. Simon Mannering (78) is the number one choice here and not the worst VC loophole option either. Shaun Johnson (71) is also a VC candidate with a higher ceiling while Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (64), Kieran Foran (60) and Bodene Thompson (60) can all be played with confidence. An interesting daily league option is Bunty Afoa (66), the matchup is excellent and he has polled well when he plays the full 80.
Penrith have included James Fisher-Harris (25) on their bench at the expense of Sitaleki Akauola which may impact the gametime of Corey Harawira-Naera (47). Tyrone Peachey (72) has a great matchup and if you were toying with the idea of trading him in this is the week to do it. Isaah Yeo (71) also benefits coming up against the weak right edge defence of the Warriors while Matt Moylan (71) should bounce back from a disappointing outing against the Sea Eagles. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak (65) was superb last week and gets another good matchup here while Trent Merrinm (61), Dylan Edwards (55) and Josh Mansour (55) can all be started with confidence.
 
Raiders v Dragons
Canberra get Josh Hodgson (39) back so Kurt Baptiste (22) goes to the bench and Scott Sorensen misses out. Jordan Rapana (81) may be highly priced but he is also very likely to excel here so if you have the money it may be worth the trade-in. Nick Cotric (78) gets a big uptick as the left winger and at the least should be started in your daily leagues. Jarrod Croker (58) is another safe starter but most of the pack get downgrades, Josh Papalii (55) will be a good player to own for your tilt at the finals but perhaps a couple of weeks before bringing him in and it might also save you some cash.
