IN­JURY SET­BACK WON’T STOP MARTIN IN GRUDGE MATCH AGAINST PAN­THERS THIS CAT’S GOT CLAWS

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

TE Maire Martin isn’t about to let a mi­nor in­jury pre­vent him from tak­ing the field against the club which dumped him.

The tal­ented 21- year- old half did not train with the Cowboys yes­ter­day af­ter suf­fer­ing a knock to the knee against the Storm last week, but is ex­pected to be fine to take on the Pan­thers on Satur­day night for the first time since a mid- sea­son switch to North Queens­land.

Martin played the first seven games of the sea­son for Pen­rith but fell out of favour and was axed to re­serve grade be­fore head­ing North. He was pre­pared to cop a few jibes from his old team­mates but ex­pected both teams to be fo­cused on the po­ten­tially sea­son- defin­ing clash. “If we get a win here then it will set us up well for the last three games,” he said.
