Manly’s mixed bag

- Sports · Rugby

DES­PER­ATE Manly hope to have two stars re­turn from in­jury this week­end.

In a much-needed lift, Sea Eagles sec­ond-row­ers Cur­tis Siro­nen (knee) and Joel Thomp­son (an­kle) are ex­pected back for Sun­day’s big match against Newcastle

Un­for­tu­nately for the club, prop Marty Tau­pau re­mains in doubt af­ter be­ing badly con­cussed in his side’s last start de­feat against the Warriors

In more tough news for Manly, fel­low dam­ag­ing for­ward Ad­din Fonua-Blake is ex­pected to miss up to a month of foot­ball due to an an­kle in­jury in last round’s loss. DEAN RITCHIE
