News broke overnight that Tigers Captain Aaron Woods has suspected to have re-injured his troublesome ankle.In what would be a devastating blow for the struggling Tigers, their skipper could be out until round 8. Early prognosis for the NSW Origin prop is 4-6 weeks out of action.

Tim Grant is expected to replace Woods in the starting line-up.

Matt Ballin was ruled out of the game with a foot injury that’s sees Justin Hunt get his chance. Matt Ballin time frame on his recovery from the foot injury has a ‘indefinite’ tag, which does not bode well for him going forward.

Jamal Idris played in NSW Cup so will take no part in the game.
