Ben Creagh and Benji Marshall will be farewelled by St George Illawarra, but NRL fans appear to have seen the last of Manly skipper Jamie Lyon.
Creagh and Marshall have been selected for one final outing in the Red V in this weekend’s last round of the season before parting ways with the club.
Retiring former club skipper Creagh has struggled with a knee injury this year, but has been named to take on Newcastle at Jubilee Oval on Saturday.
As expected, playmaker Marshall has been granted a recall despite being dropped last week.
Those who won’t receive send-offs from their club include Lyon and South Sydney five-eighth Luke Keary.
Lyon hoped to pull on the Sea Eagles jersey one last time before retiring, but was not named to take on Penrith due to a hamstring injury.
Also for Manly, Dylan Walker has made an unexpected return from a shoulder problem that was expected to sideline him for the rest of the year.
Departing Rabbitohs playmaker Keary hasn’t overcome a torn hamstring so won’t play a final game for the club before moving to Sydney Roosters.
While Canterbury veteran Sam Perrett will also sit out this week, and is racing the clock to make a recovery from a neck injury before he hangs up the boots at season’s end.
North Queensland prop Matt Scott (finger) will miss his side’s high-stakes Queensland derby with Gold Coast, and veteran forward Ben Hannant goes into the side.
Wests Tigers have received a boost before their crunch clash with Canberra, with Chris Lawrence named to return from a shin injury.
Jeremy Latimore and Moses Leota have been named on Penrith’s extended bench to cover the loss of Reagan Campbell-Gillard (back).
Sydney Roosters will miss Boyd Cordner (knee) and Sio Siua Taukeiaho (knee) for their clash with Brisbane, with Ryan Matterson and Isaac Liu to start in the back row.
Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough has been named but is under a fitness cloud after rolling his ankle.
With Manu Vatuvei (sternum) and Solomone Kata (suspension) missing, the Warriors have been forced into a back-line reshuffle, with Tuimoala Lolohea shifted to fullback and Jonathan Wright and Ken Maumalo on the wings.
The Storm have named Matt White and Christian Welch on an extended bench to cover suspended prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona.
