Manly’s mixed bag
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
