Tahu, Vella and Grothe

Parramatta has good news on the injury front with Test star Timana Tahu possibly back for the second week of the finals. Tahu injured his knee in the State of Origin decider on July 5 and thought he'd miss the rest of the year.

In further good news, frontrower Michael Vella is rated a good chance of returning for Friday's match against North Queensland while winger Eric Grothe's overcome a neck strain and will definitely play.
