Round 12 NRL Lineup Prediction

It’s a vibrant week in the world of rugby as the South Sydney team ascends to the pinnacle of the NRL ladder in anticipation of Round 12. Meanwhile, the Dragons continue to grapple with a challenging six-game losing streak.

Zac Lomax and Jacob Liddle are poised to invigorate the Red V following their victorious performance in reserve grade. However, the promising player Jayden Sullivan’s future remains uncertain due to a series of peculiar strategies against the Cowboys.

Josh Addo-Carr is on track to rejoin the game this weekend after an unforeseen withdrawal against the Warriors, while Jason Taumalolo is expected to be back on the field for the Cowboys.

The Parramatta team is hopeful about halfback Mitch Moses returning to form in a crucial upcoming match. But, conversely, the Broncos remain anxious about the physical condition of two of their seasoned players.
