Coming off a close six-point win over the Western Sydney Rams, the UC Vikings will be looking for a more assertive performance going into last year’s semi-final rematch with Melbourne Rising.
Faalelei Sione gets his first ever start for the Vikings, and Josh Mann-Rea will replace Robbie Abel at hooker. Abel is being given the week off to rest.
Also, Jordan Smiler returns from injury for the Vikings, he will join debutant Eli Sinoti on the bench.
After an inconsistent start to the season, Melbourne Rising will be looking to build off a big win over defending champions Brisbane City, and take the Horan-Little shield in the process.
Melbourne have several changes to the side that defeated City, with Tom Moloney and Tyrel Lomax starting for the Rising.
The Rising will also see Jack Debreczeni return at 10, and Jonah Placid return at fullback.
The last these two sides played was in last year’s semi-final. It was a close game at first, but the Vikings ran away with it in the end to take home the 16-point win at home.
The Vikings aren’t coming off the best performance, and the Rising have a ton of momentum. However, the Vikings are tough to beat at home, and Melbourne are playing with a squad that has been significantly changed since last week. This one could really go either way.
