Friend may be back early

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

SYD­NEY Roost­ers co- cap­tain Jake Friend is poised for an early re­turn from a bro­ken hand and could line up for Sun­day’s NRL clash with Manly. Af­ter miss­ing just three matches, Friend was on Tues­day named on an ex­tended bench, with 19year- old Vic­tor Radley re­tain­ing his place as the start­ing hooker.

Mean­while, Ben Hunt was named to re­place in­jured Bris­bane hooker An­drew McCul­lough while Pen­rith’s Matt Moy­lan is 18th man but could make his come­back from a ham­string prob­lem.
