Raiders let Clyds­dale walk free

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

CAN­BERRA have re­leased Adam Clyds­dale to join Cronulla for the re­main­der of 2017.

The Raiders for­mally parted ways with Clyds­dale yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, open­ing the door for him to link with the Sharks as cover with Jay­den Brai­ley and James Sege­yaro both in­jured.

Brai­ley will miss be­tween six and eight weeks af­ter break­ing his jaw in last Sun­day’s loss to Manly.

With Sege­yaro not ex­pected back from a bro­ken arm un­til round 19, the rookie Sharks’ in­jury has come at the worst pos­si­ble time for the de­fend­ing pre­miers.

Cronulla have also re­leased Daniel Mor­timer ( Leigh) and Manaia Cher­ring­ton ( War­riors) this sea­son, leav­ing them in a hole in the hooker po­si­tion.

Fa’amanu Brown has been named to play hooker against the Roost­ers to­day, but Clyds­dale will give the Sharks plenty of depth around the ruck for the rest of the sea­son.
