Round 1 NRL teams drop big name shocks

THE NRL team lists are in and fans could be in for some shocks for round one.

Several big-name shake-ups were unveiled as each club unveiled their new-look sides.

After more than four months of pre-season training, players and fans will finally learn of their club's new directions.

Some of the team list shocks included:

- Greg Inglis moving to right centre, moving him out of his comfort zone away from the fullback and left centre positions.

- Warriors forward Isaiah Papali'i has been stood down for the opening game of the season after a drink-driving offence during the off-season, confirmed by coach Stephen Kearney.

- Warriors star Isaac Luke has also been left out of the squad after he continues to recover from injury.

- Josh Reynolds will be dropped to reserve grade after coach Michael Maguire opted against using Reynolds off the bench. Benji Marshall and Luke Brooks will form the Tigers' halves partnership.

Moses Mbye has been cleared of injury.

- Teenage hulk Tom Fleger wins a spot on the Broncos' bench.

- Warriors talent Adam Keighran will get the nod to partner Blake Green in the halves ahead of Chanel Harris-Tevita.

- Dragons fullback Matt Dufty to revert to the bench.

- Manly star No. 1 Tom Trbojevic will not be available until round three with Brendan Elliot expected to step into the fullback role.

- Mikaele Ravalawa is expected to win the race for the vacant Dragons wing position ahead of Zac Lomax.
