The injury list is still long, but it's vastly better than last week. A few key players are still out, notably top locks Tevita Naqali and Stan South, although the latter is very close to returning and is a matchday decision. Furthermore, reserve lock Felix Kalapu seems unlikely to join the team at all this season. In the back line, Thretton Palamo continues to be absent, and is not joined by Junior Sa'u. Mike Dabulas is day-to-day, meaning that we should see him rejoin the lineup this week or next week.
The big story is all the names who are coming now available. Rohan Saifoloi, the big signing of the season, is apparently available and will be playing this week. He and Peni Lasaqa have made it through visa-hell and should be a big boost for the back line.
Disclaimer: Injury updates are difficult to do, because MLR teams are not very open about who is and isn't available. I've done my best here, but I can't guarantee any of the information is perfectly accurate.
