Andrew Fifita has missed the cut again for Cronulla while Mawene Hiroti replaces the suspended Jesse Ramien in the final game of the round.


Here is all the latest round-two selection news, predicted teams and injury updates for the remaining matches.

Sharks v Raiders, Sunday 6.15pm at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

Sharks: Centre Jesse Ramien took the early guilty plea for a reckless high tackle on Dragon Matt Dufty and will miss three games. With Cronulla's centre depth already tested by the injury to back-up Jackson Ferris (broken foot) coach John Morris has gone with Mawene Hiroti as Ramien's replacement.

Forwards Royce Hunt (knee) and Siosifa Talakai (shoulder) must wait at least another week to return from injury.

Nene Macdonald and Teig Wilton were trimmed from the game-day squad an hour before kick-off after Andrew Fifita and Braydon Trindall were omitted on Saturday.

Captain Wade Graham will achieve the milestone of 250 NRL games.

Raiders: Coach Ricky Stuart has stuck with the same 17 after the staff elected against bringing back co-captain Jarrod Croker, giving rookie Sebastian Kris at least another week in the line-up.

Croker's shoulder is fine after off-season surgery, but Stuart is focused on the centre getting more conditioning under his belt. Rising star rake Tom Starling remains stuck behind Josh Hodgson and Siliva Havili in the reserves.

Sam Williams and Harley Smith-Shields were omitted from the reserves on game day after Tom Starling and Emre Guler dropped out of the squad 24 hours before kickoff.

The Raiders have won their past four games against the Sharks.
