Win­ter­stein strain mi­nor

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

COWBOYS winger An­to­nio Win­ter­stein won’t need surgery but it’s un­clear whether a mi­nor pec­toral strain will keep him out of North Queens­land’s clash with the Manly Sea Ea­gles on Mon­day week.

Win­ter­stein missed the sec­ond half of Satur­day’s win over St Ge­orge- Illawarra in Wol­lon­gong as a pre­cau­tion and scans in Townsville yesterday showed the strain was only mi­nor.

The 27- year- old won’t need surgery and the in­jury didn’t ex­ac­er­bate the com­plete pec­toral tear which saw him miss the sec­ond half of the 2011 sea­son.

Win­ter­stein has scored six tries in 13 games for the Cowboys this sea­son.
