It's looking pretty good for Roy, to be sure, but his spot in the side isn't guaranteed. It depends on a fitness test on Thursday, as Esoj said.

From www.nrl.com:

Asotasi, Maitua Back For The Dogs

Bulldogs prop Roy Asotasi has passed his final fitness test and is a certain starter for Friday night's NRL preliminary final against Brisbane at Aussie Stadium.

Asotasi has not played since the Round 24 30-0 loss to the Broncos when he injured the medial ligament in his knee.

The Kiwi international was cleared by his specialist on Tuesday and will resume playing off the bench for the Bulldogs.

Utility Reni Maitua will also make his comeback for the Bulldogs, he also completed the Dogs' final training session on Thursday morning.
