The road to the finals starts tonight in NRL Round 18 as the Sea Eagles and Dragons battle it out

Advertisement

With State of Origin in the rear-view mirror, teams renew their push for the top eight in Round 18 on NRL this weekend as the entire competition relocates to Queensland amid the latest COVID-19 outbreak.

Tonight on Macca’s Friday Night Footy, the Sea Eagles and Dragons battle on the Gold Coast. While the Dragons have endured negative off-field headlines lately, they get a massive boost with Manly resting star fullback Tom Trbojevic.

St George Illawarra will play 19-year-old Tyrell Sloan at fullback in place of the suspended Matt Dufty, while rookie revelation Josh Schuster bolsters the Sea Eagles forward back.

Chemist Warehouse Sunday Footy shapes as an intriguing battle between two topsy-turvy sides desperate to win, the Broncos and Wests Tigers.

The Wests Tigers have promoted NSW Blues squad member Stefano Utoikamanu, a young prop forward of immense promise, to the starting side and switched Adam Doueihi back to his preferred position, five-eighth.

Payne Haas continues to put in mammoth performances for the Broncos, and they will look to their Origin man-mountain to lead the Tiger hunt. Kotoni Staggs has transformed the Broncos since returning from injury, and they look like a different team with his attacking brilliance.
