The final Monday night game of the season will feature two teams well out of finals contention with Canberra and Penrith meeting 25 years on from their first Grand Final meeting in 1990.

Canberra centre Joey Leilua has again been suspended meaning Brenko Lee comes into the side for the first time this year. Penrith’s injury woes continue with Elijah Taylor done for the season, which has forced a reshuffle that sees Waqa Blake back in first grade, Isaah Yeo back in the pack, Api Koroisau at five-eighth and James Segeyaro starting at hooker.

Canberra and Penrith have an extremely close rivalry through their 23-year history with the Panthers winning 33, the Raiders 32 and one draw. The Panthers have won five of the last eight games. The teams met in Round 20 at Penrith with the Raiders winning 34-24. The Panthers have won three of the last five in Canberra. The last two matches have tallied over 46 points. Bench forward Paul Vaughan has scored four tries in his last four games against Penrith. Raider Blake Austin is a former Panther.

Canberra are down to 12th on the ladder despite having the ninth best differential in the NRL. The Raiders have dropped their last four and have no conceded 20-plus in 13 straight matches. Canberra have won just three of their last 13. At home this year they are a horrid 2-9. Against teams outside the eight they are 6-5 while in games decided by four points or less they are 0-7. Penrith also have an 8-14 record and are 13th on the ladder with the 11th best differential. The Panthers have won just one of their last seven – a home win over the Warriors – but have not conceded 20 points in their last four. Penrith have the worst attack in the NRL. On the road this year they are 3-9 while against teams outside the Top 8 they are 5-5.

Josh Hodgson and James Segeyaro are two extremely dangerous hookers when on song and will be looking to have a big impact on this one. Hodgson has been an outstanding buy for Canberra and ranks second in try assists for the club with nine and fourth in offloads with 18. With a great workrate he has been a steal. Segeyaro is a different type of player and has had a stop-start season but remains the most dangerous running rake in the game. With 80 minutes likely, he will need to be sharp all night.

Canberra are 11-11 ATS this season and 13-9 over while Penrith are 11-11 ATS with a 15-7 under record. The Raiders have covered just six of their last 16 at home and have covered just four of their last 15 as a home favourite. Penrith have covered five of their last seven as a road outsider and are 13-9 ATS getting more than a try on the road since 2013. Canberra are 1-3 ATS on Mondays the last three years while Penrith are 3-5 ATS. Canberra are 18-8 over off a double digit loss.

Motivation is huge in this one. If Canberra were interested in winning they could lap the Panthers given Penrith’s injury toll but their attitude against Gold Coast was abhorrent last week and with their season done and dusted – and Ricky Stuart missing the finals yet again –  there is no assurance that they will turn up, even at home where they have managed just two wins all year. The Panthers, for their position on the ladder, have rarely given in and won’t hand the Raiders a win. With a decent start Penrith look a play.

Players List:

Canberra Raiders: 1 Jack Wighton 2 Edrick Lee 3 Jarrod Croker (c) 4 Brenko Lee 5 Sisa Waqa 6 Blake Austin 7 Sam Williams 8 Frank Paul Nuuausala 9 Josh Hodgson 10 David Shillington 11 Josh Papalii 12 Jarrad Kennedy 13 Shaun Fensom.

St George Illawarra have a very handy run into the finals and can virtually secure their first playoff spot in four seasons with a road win against the hapless Titans team who will need a win over the last fortnight of the season to ensure they avoid the dreaded wooden spoon.

The Titans have had a rough time with injury this year and have now lost Greg Bird. Dan Mortimer shifts to five-eighth with Kierran Moseley added to the squad. Ryan James is also out suspended with Lachlan Burr back in the team. The Dragons get Jason Nightingale and Joel Thompson back from injury with Justin Hunt and Jake Marketo out.

The Dragons have won 10 of the 14 matches all-time with the Titans with an average winning margin of nearly six points. The Dragons have won the last two and have won four of the six all-time on the Gold Coast. None of the last eight matches have topped 42 points. Josh Dugan has scored tries in his last three against the Titans. Gold Coast player Kalifa Faifai-Loa is a former Dragons player.

The Titans are 15th on the ladder with an 8-14 record though they have the worst differential in the NRL. They have the worst defence while they rank 13th in attack. The Titans have won just two of their last nine but have wins against Parramatta and Canberra in the last month – their last two home games. Gold Coast are 4-7 at home this year while against teams in the Top 8 they are 2-8. The Dragons are eighth on the ladder and have the sixth best differential. They have won three of their last four and are 7-2 against teams not in the Top 8 this year. The Dragons are 2-2 interstate this year while they have been held to single figures in four of their last seven.

The battle between five-eighths Daniel Mortimer and Gareth Widdop will be really important in this one. Mortimer has struggled in the halves but with a host of injuries Neil Henry has little option but to go with the converted hooker. Mortimer has just one try assist from five games in the halves this year. Widdop is a more consistent type but his form has been down through the backhalf of the year. With the club struggling for points of late, the Saints really need him to lift.

Gold Coast are 11-11 ATS and 12-10 over this year while the Dragons are 12-10 ATS and the leading under team with a 16-6 under record. The Titans are 6-5 ATS at home this year while they have covered four of their last five when getting more than a converted try at home. The Saints have covered 10 of their last 13 interstate and are 3-0 ATS as an interstate favourite over the last two seasons. The Titans have covered four of their last 11 off a win. The Saints have covered just one of their last eight after being restricted to 20 points or fewer.

Taking the Titans with the points here is more a reflection of the kind of side the Saints are. There is no question the Gold Coast have been gutted by injury but the Dragons attack is far too concerning. Laying points on the road just isn’t an option. Gold Coast are a better team with Kane Elgey in the side and still have some strikepower out wide. The home underdog are worth a play here.

Players List:

Gold Coast Titans: 1 Josh Hoffman 2 David Mead 3 James Roberts 4 Nene Macdonald 5 Kalifa Faifai Loa 6 Daniel Mortimer 7 Kane Elgey 8 Luke Douglas 9 Beau Falloon 10 Nate Myles (c) 11 Agnatius Paasi 12 Dave Taylor 13 Lachlan Burr.

Interchange: 14 Matthew White 15 Eddy Pettybourne 16 Nathaniel Peteru 17 Kierran Moseley 18 Brad Tighe.

St George Dragons: 1 Josh Dugan 2 Dylan Farrell 3 Euan Aitken 4 Peter Mata’utia 5 Jason Nightingale 6 Gareth Widdop 7 Benji Marshall 8 Leeson Ah Mau 9 Mitch Rein 10 Mike Cooper 11 Tyson Frizell 12 Joel Thompson 13 Trent Merrin.

Robbie Farah’s likely final home game will be an emotional affair for the Tigers and against a Warriors team that seems to have very little interest in competing, it could get ugly with a win for the Tigers lifting them off the bottom of the ladder.

Wests Tigers are unchanged. New Zealand have lost Jacob Lillyman to injury while Ken Maumalo was dropped. Seb Ikahihifo and Matt Allwood come into the team. Konrad Hurrell remains inexplicably on the bench.

New Zealand have won 13 of the 24 matches against the Wests Tigers all-time including three straight wins dating back to 2013. All those wins have been by double figures with the Warriors scoring 22-plus in six straight against the Tigers. All-time the two sides are five apiece when matches are played in Australia. The last six and 11 of the last 13 matches have topped 38 points. Warriors backrower Bodene Thompson is a former Tigers player.

The Tigers currently sit last in the premiership ladder with a 7-15 record and the fourth worst differential. They rank 12th in attack and 13th in defence. The Tigers have won just two of their last nine and have conceded 24-plus in their last seven losses. The Tigers are 1-2 at Campbelltown this year and 3-8 against non-eight teams. New Zealand are 10th on the ladder but have just a 9-13 record, the fifth worst differential, an 11th ranking in defence and a 12th rating in attack. They have dropped their last six (and haven’t won since Shaun Johnson went down hurt) with their average losing margin over that time an incredible 22 points. New Zealand are 4-6 in Australia this year and 7-4 against non-eight teams.

It is hard to look past James Tedesco and Sam Tomkins – two of the few players in these respective backlines that actually has some life and attacking chops. Tedesco has had a sublime season with the most combined tries and assists in the NRL to go with the most tackle breaks. Tomkins, by contrast, has been ordinary but with just two games left of his NRL career will be heavily relied upon with rookies in the five-eighth and half slots.

The Tigers are an NRL worst 7-15 ATS with a 12-10 over number. The Warriors are 9-13 ATS with an 11-11 over-under record. The Tigers are 13-21 ATS interstate over the last three years with just six covers in their last 16. The under is 9-2 in the Tigers’ last 11 at Campbelltown and have covered just one of their last six. The Tigers have covered just four of their last 16 when favoured by more than a converted try. Teams who lose six straight are 26-19 ATS over the last five years while teams who concede 50 are 15-11 ATS with the over 18-8.

This is a tough proposition for punters. The typical advice in such a low game at this time of year would be to take the start and hope for the best but with Robbie Farah having his final home game a spanner has been thrown in the works. How the team reacts to his axing. The smart play is taking the Tigers 1-12. A blowout either way wouldn’t surprise but if the match is close you would think the Tigers should lift for their skipper.

Players List:

Wests Tigers: 1 James Tedesco 2 David Nofoaluma 3 Kevin Naiqama 4 Tim Simona 5 Pat Richards 6 Mitchell Moses 7 Luke Brooks 8 Aaron Woods 9 Robbie Farah (c) 10 Sauaso Sue 11 Curtis Sironen 12 Chris Lawrence 13 Martin Taupau.

Interchange: 14 Kyle Lovett 15 Keith Galloway 16 Ava Seumanufagai 17 Dene Halatau 18 Manaia Cherrington

New Zealand Warriors: 1 Sam Tomkins, 2 Matt Allwood, 3 Dominique Peyroux, 4 Solomone Kata, 5 Jonathan Wright, 6 Mason Lino, 7 Tuimoala Lolohea, 8 Sebastine Ikahihifo, 9 Nathan Friend, 10 Albert Vete, 11 Bodene Thompson, 12 Ryan Hoffman, 13 Simon Mannering (c).

The Melbourne Storm and the Cowboys may well be the match of the round in what shapes as a real beauty of a contest. Melbourne were dreadfully poor on Monday against Newcastle while North Queensland overcame a slow start to roll the Warriors. This match has a major impact on the makeup of the finals series.

Craig Bellamy has held his nerve and left Melbourne unchanged from the loss to Newcastle. North Queensland have replaced Michael Morgan – who will return in Round 26 contrary reports – with Ray Thompson while Gavin Cooper comes in for the injured James Tamou. Scott Bolton replaces the dumped Coen Hess.

Melbourne have won 19 of 28 all-time against North Queensland including eight of 10 in Victoria. The Cowboys have won the last two – including a dramatic 18-17 Golden Point win in Round 4 in Townsville – as well as four of the last six. North Queensland won the last match in Melbourne, a 20-16 win in 2012. Three of the last four matches have tallied less than 36 points. North Queensland have former Storm players Justin O’Neill and Rory Kostjasyn on the books. Antonio Winterstein has scored three tries in his last two games against the Storm.

Melbourne sit sixth on the ladder with a 12-10 record but have the fourth best differential. The Storm rank third in defence and eighth in attack. They have won four of their last six but have had shocking losses to the Wests Tigers and Newcastle in the last month. At home this year they are 6-4 while against Top 8 opposition they are 6-4. North Queensland are third on the ladder but have the equal best record at 16-6 with the third rated differential. The Cowboys have the best attack to go with the sixth best defence. North Queensland have won five of their last seven and ended a two-game losing streak in Auckland last Saturday with a 50-16 win over New Zealand. North Queensland are 9-2 on the road and 5-5 against Top 8 opposition.

Cooper Cronk and Johnathan Thurston are the two best halves in the game but it is Thurston who has had an unquestioned better year. The Cowboys No.7 has one hand on a record fourth Dally M Medal. His stats this year are remarkable. His 20 try assists in 19 games is 25% clear of second-placed Cronk, while he leads every player in line break assists. Only three halfbacks have more tackle breaks and no half has more offloads. Cronk needs to kick well and spark the Storm attack if they can go with the red-hot Cowboys.

Melbourne are the second top under team in the NRL with a 15-7 under record while the Cowboys are 12-10 over. The Storm are 11-11 ATS while the Cowboys are 10-12 ATS. North Queensland have covered 13 of their last 16 interstate trips with the over 7-3 this year. As an interstate outsider North Queensland are 10-2 ATS under Paul Green. Melbourne are 7-11 ATS as a home favourite over the last two seasons. The Storm are 2-5 ATS on a quick backup since 2014. North Queensland are 4-9 ATS after scoring 30-plus the week prior. Melbourne are 12-19 ATS off a double digit loss.

North Queensland have been fantastic on the road this year and can continue it against a Storm team that has been very inconsistent. The Cowboys have been slow starters all year but can pile on points quickly. The loss of Michael Morgan hurts but the Storm remain without Billy Slater. The numbers certainly push for a Cowboys win here as a marginal outsider and they well and truly pass the eye test as well.

Players List:

Melbourne Storm: 1. Cameron Munster 2. Marika Koroibete 3. Will Chambers 4. Kurt Mann 5. Matt Duffie 6. Blake Green 7. Cooper Cronk 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Cameron Smith 10. Tim Glasby 11. Kevin Proctor 12. Tohu Harris 13. Kenneath Bromwich.

Interchange: 14. Ryan Hinchcliffe 15. Felise Kaufusi 16. Nelson Asofa-Solomona 17. Jordan McLean

North Queensland Cowboys: 1. Lachlan Coote 2. Kyle Feldt 3. Justin O’Neill 4. Kane Linnett 5. Antonio Winterstein 6. Ray Thompson 7. Johnathan Thurston 8. Matthew Scott 9. Jake Granville 10. Ben Hannant 11. Gavin Cooper 12. Ethan Lowe 13. Jason Taumalolo.

Newcastle will be hoping to leverage their end-of-season run of form into a positive farewell for skipper Kurt Gidley and the potential parlaying into a full-time job for Danny Buderus but face a tough task against the in-form Canterbury side looking at a Top 4 spot.

Newcastle welcome back veteran Beau Scott with Sam Mataora dropping out of the squad. Canterbury are unchanged but are hopeful of getting Aiden Tolman back in the team.

Newcastle and Canterbury have played on 41 occasions and amazingly each have won 20 with a draw. The Knights have had the wood on the Bulldogs in recent years with eight wins in the last 12 outings. The teams met just once last year with the Bulldogs winning 16-12 at ANZ. The Knights have won five of the last six against the Bulldogs at Hunter Stadium. Ten of the last 12 have tallied 38 or less. Bulldogs halfback Trent Hodkinson is off to Newcastle in 2016.

Newcastle are up to 14th on the ladder though are in a logjam on 8-14. They have the second worst differential, ninth in attack and 15th in defence. The Knights have won their last two with wins away to Wests Tigers and Melbourne. Newcastle are 4-7 at home this year and are 2-8 against Top 8 teams. The Bulldogs sit seventh on the ladder but could go fourth this weekend. They rate sixth in differential, fifth in attack and 10th in defence. The Bulldogs have won three straight – their last two by 13-plus – with wins over the Broncos and Bunnies. Canterbury are 3-2 outside of Sydney this year while they are 8-3 against bottom eight teams. The Bulldogs have scored 28-plus in four of their last six.

Sam Kasiano and Korbin Sims are two of the form prop forwards of the competition and will play a big part in this one. Kasiano is coming off a man-of-the-match showing against the Rabbitohs where he had five offloads while he has a line break assist in each of his last two matches. Sims has been a beast of late with 130-plus metres in seven of his last eight showings. Both  are unique types with more appreciated teammates but both will add some key punch into thise.

Newcastle are 10-12 ATS with an 11-11 over-under record while Canterbury are 12-10 ATS with a 12-10 over number. Newcastle are 2-5 ATS under Adam Devcich since 2013 while the Bulldogs are 3-1 ATS. The Knights have covered their last two at home and are 9-3 ATS as a home underdog over the last three years. The Knights are a perfect 4-0 ATS when getting a start of 8 or more. Home teams getting 8 or more start are 27-16 ATS since 2013 and 6-3 ATS this year. The Bulldogs have covered 8 of their last 12 when favoured by 8 or more. Favourites off three straight wins are 44-67 ATS since 2013 and have failed to cover the last 10.

The Knights with the start look too good a bet to pass up this week. The line of 8.5 is huge for a home team and it is typically good practice to take the points with home underdogs of such big value. To add to the mix the Knights have a great recent record against the Bulldogs while favourites off three straight wins are a cover nightmare. The plus looks a big play.

Players list:

Newcastle Knights: 1. Jake Mamo 2. Nathan Ross 3. Sione Mata’utia 4. Dane Gagai 5. Akuila Uate 6. Kurt Gidley 7. Tyrone Roberts 8. Kade Snowden 9. Adam Clydsdale 10. Korbin Sims 11. Beau Scott 12. Tariq Sims 13. Jeremy Smith.

Interchange: 14. Tyler Randell 15. Joseph Tapine 16. Chris Houston 17. Clint Newton

Canterbury Bulldogs: 1. Brett Morris 2. Curtis Rona 3. Josh Morris 4. Timoteo Lafai 5. Sam Perrett 6. Moses Mbye 7. Trent Hodkinson 8. Sam Kasiano 9. Damien Cook 10. James Graham 11. Josh Jackson 12. Frank Pritchard 13. Greg Eastwood.

Interchange: 14. Lloyd Perrett 15. Shaun Lane 16. David Klemmer 17. Tim Browne 19. Danny Fualalo
