Mitchell Aubusson 13. Victor Radley 14. Angus Crichton 16. Nat Butcher 17. Siosiua Taukeiaho 20. Jake Friend
Early mail • Jared Waerea-Hargreaves is expected to return. This will likely force Siosiua Taukeiaho or Mitch Aubusson to the bench, and push Lindsay Collins back to the reserves. There's also plenty of chatter around hooker Jake Friend, who hasn't pulled on the Tricolours' jersey since July. If named, he'll likely appear on the bench, potentially in place of Nat Butcher.
21-man squad • Jared Waerea-Hargreaves has been named at prop as expected which sees Siosiua Taukeiaho dropped to the bench with Lindsay Collins back in the reserves. Jake Friend has been named in the reserves rather than on the bench has had been tipped.
19-man squad • Lindsay Collins and Drew Hutchison are omitted.
LATE MAIL • Jake Friend replaces Zane Tetevano on the interchange.

Elliott Whitehead 13. Joseph Tapine 14. Bailey Simonsson 15. Emre Guler 16. Corey Horsburgh 17. Dunamis Lui
Early mail • No changes expected for the Green Machine - Joey Leilua was in doubt with a significant calf injury after Friday's win over the Rabbitohs, but coach Ricky Stuart has confirmed he'll be named. Jack Wighton also had a minor shoulder complaint from the same clash but won't have an issue heading into the decider.
21-man squad • No changes to the squad from last Friday's win over the Rabbitohs. There are still doubts over Joey Leilua who suffered a calf injury but he's set to play at this stage.
19-man squad • Sam Williams and Sebastian Kris drop out.
LATE MAIL • Canberra are 1-17 as they look to win their first title since 1994.

Early mail • During his Monday briefing, NRL head of football Graham Annesley didn't pass much comment on which two of the four remaining referees would be handed officiating duties for Sunday's decider, but did confirm he was happy with the performance of the refereeing teams across the Preliminary Final weekend after a slew of mistakes and controversial calls earlier in the Finals Series.
Appointments • Cummins (lead) and Sutton (assist) have won the whistles for Sunday's decider.
