ONE IN, ONE OUT AT MANLY
RETURNING No.1 Tom Trbojevic is set to be named in Manly’s side just as makeshift fullback Dylan Walker has learned he will be out injured for up to 10 weeks.
Walker ruptured his hamstring against the Warriors last Saturday.
Coach Des Hasler said: “It’s untimely for Dylan. He did a great job for us at fullback.
“Hopefully he will be back in eight to 10 weeks. Fortunately it’s not as bad as first thought.”
Walker’s loss will be offset by the anticipated return of Trbojevic, who must pass a final fitness test today to play the Gold Coast in Mudgee.
In further bad news for Manly, Jack Gosiewski is out for 10 weeks with a torn tendon in his ankle. Hasler is hoping second-rower Curtis Sironen (knee) and centre Moses Suli (lower back) will be available in a fortnight.
