Chris Yates has named round 21 team for this week.
We caught up with Chris Yates and asked about last weekend's cancelled game against Burwood North Ryde and this Saturday's upcoming game against the Auburn Warriors at Lidcombe Oval...
What are the plans for last week's game? Is it looking like it will be played
It's in the hands of the NSWRL Committee. I had a look at the weather charts and they don't look good at the moment so ground availability would be limited.
This weekend we're up against the Auburn Warriors... So where do you think we'll need to concentrate for this weekend's game to come away with the win?
Our defence, we need to be strong in the middle and stop their big men from offloading. Auburn rely on their 2nd phase play and are very dangerous when allowed to.
Who do you think are the danger players that we'll need to watch out for?
Matt Utai and Hekka Nanai both have plenty of NRL experience and are dangerous with the ball.
Are there any injuries to report on or on report?
We are looking at a few returning this week and next:
• Walter Vaeau
• Blake Cook
• James Tuitahi
• KJ MacKenzie
• Brenden McKinnon
• Justin Lemalu
They are to play Auburn Warriors
Sat Aug 23, 3:00 PM AEST, Lidcombe Oval, Lidcombe NSW 2141
