Late Mail - Round 21 v Rabbitohs

Update: Sandor Earl and Max King drop out of the squad to face the Rabbitohs at Central Coast Stadium today.

Nicho Hynes will start at fullback, with Tui Kamikamica, Joe Stimson, Tino Fa’Asuamaleaui and Billy Walters on the interchange bench.

Original story follows:

Injuries have forced an additional two changes to the Melbourne Storm squad for tomorrow’s NRL clash with South Sydney at Central Coast Stadium.
Ryan Papenhuyzen (mid-foot sprain) and Brandon Smith (ankle sprain) have been ruled out, joining Jahrome Hughes (back spasms) on the sideline.

Former Central Coast junior Nicho Hynes will make his NRL debut at fullback.

The NRL has granted Storm permission to add Billy Walters to the squad and he will join Tino Fa’asuamaleaui in the final 17 on the interchange bench.

Solomone Kata is the other omission from the squad of 21 named on Tuesday.
