The Whites have followed ACT qualification rules to the letter and have all players qualified for the final series. Only colt BJ Jimenez will miss a game due to a suspension. He will be available next week.

Reserve grade looks likely with Steven Prail and Rowland Mateyama returning from a one game promotion to first grade. Both equipped themselves well at the higher level and both should have an impact on Sunday.

The side will be boosted by the availability of prop Ben Gordon and half Mitch Douch.

Fourths and thirds will be unchanged with the exception likely to be the inclusion of David Kerr and/or Tom G. Darmody in the fourths. Darmody only lasted 30 seconds last week but is undergoing a rigorous recovery.

Two big men, Dirk Wilkins in fourths and Sam Perkins in thirds, are the key men with their ability to push through the line and attract plenty of defenders. The quicksters love it when they get the smallest of breaks off their impact.

Colts will field their strongest side of the season with only prop Fred Kaihea missing the action as he played a majority of games in first grade.

Centre Jack Gilmour, locks Zeph Tuinona and Becs Seeto add plenty with Tuinona likely to play as a flanker allowing Daniel Vrkic to bind with Seeto.

All games are at Erindale with fourths on Saturday at 9.25am and the other sides on Sunday with colts at 11.15am, thirds at 11.40 and reserves at 1.25.
