    Casualty Ward: Green to miss Warriors trial games

    NRL.com
    Thu 7 Feb 2019, 11:45 AM


    Warriors playmaker Blake Green is set to miss both pre-season trial games with a hamstring injury but is aiming to be fit for the opening round of the season.

    Green's absence means youngsters Chanel Harris-Tavita and Adam Keighran are both likely to get a chance in the starting side in the trial games, with one set to replace Shaun Johnson as Green's halves partner at the Warriors this season.

    Titans skipper Ryan James is also facing several weeks on the sideline with a medial ligament injury and could miss both his team's trials and possibly the Gold Coast's season opener against Canberra.

    Moses Mbye has returned to training a week after suffering a torn PCL at training. He is expected to be fit to play in the Tigers' second trial against the Warriors in New Zealand on March 2.

    Benji Marshall is also expected to be fit for that match after recovering from a minor hamstring tear.

    Brisbane Broncos five-eighth Anthony Milford could feature in at least one of the club's trial matches after declaring his shoulder was "70 per cent" healthy six weeks out from the start of the Telstra Premiership season.

    Despite a scare at training on Monday, Milford front the media following the session and remained optimistic of having a pre-season run following a shoulder reconstruction last season.

    Milford has been on light duties over the summer but is expected to join contact drills soon.

    "Obviously you have to be a bit careful at training, but everything is looking positive," Milford said.

    "It is going really well at weights and I am getting the strength back in it. It's not quite 100 per cent, but it is 70 per cent or so and near that mark."

    Manly could be without star fullback Tom Trbojevic for round one after injuring his hamstring in the Sea Eagles' trial loss to Cronulla.

    Trbojevic suffered a hamstring strain during the first half of the match and didn't return for the second, with scans early next week to determine the severity.

    The Sea Eagles also lost Kelepi Tanginoa and Taniela Paseka to knee injuries during that match.

    Club officials are concerned the trio will each be sidelined for four weeks.

    Sharks prop Ava Seumanufagai also left the field on Saturday night with what appeared to be a knee injury.

    Penrith second-rower Viliame Kikau suffered a suspected grade 1-2 medial ligament tear, with scans on Monday to determine his stint on the sidelines.

    Brisbane's rising star Tevita Pangai jnr left the field in the 18th minute of the Broncos' clash with Wynnum with a leg injury.

    Adam Elliott, Dylan Napa and Kerrod Holland picked up minor leg injuries in the trial against Canberra in Bega but none are expected to be in doubt for round one.

    Knee injuries to Cowboys wingers Murray Taulagi and Kurt Wiltshirewere the major worry for coach Paul Green after the trial against Gold Coast, but he was confident prop Corey Jensen's rolled ankle would not keep him out of action for too long.

    Casualty Ward: Drinkwater out for 3-4 months with torn pec


    NRL.com
    Mon 4 Mar 2019, 12:41 PM



    Scans have confirmed Scott Drinkwater's worst fears, with the Melbourne Storm fullback sidelined for 3-4 months with a ruptured pec.

    Drinkwater was the frontrunner for Melbourne's vacant No.1 jersey following Billy Slater's retirement but coach Craig Bellamy will have to switch to plan B.

    Drinkwater suffered the injury in Saturday night's 14-6 trial loss to the Cowboys in Mackay and will meet with a specialist this week to determine a surgery date.

    Meanwhile, Wests Tigers veteran Chris Lawrence will fly back to Australia in coming days after breaking his jaw at training in New Zealand in the lead up to Saturday’s trial against the Warriors.

    Once back in Australia, Lawrence will undergo surgery and faces a lengthy recovery. He is the only Wests Tigers player who definitely won’t be available for round one selection.

    Paul Momirovski (quadriceps) and Elijah Taylor (pectoral) were both rested from the Warriors trial but will be available for round one selection.

    Thomas Mikaele suffered a knock against the Warriors but was cleared of serious injury.

    Josh Reynolds, Corey Thompson, Robbie Rochow, Chris McQueen, Josh Aloiai and Matt Eisenhuth all made successful returns after off-season surgeries in Whangarei.

    Adam Reynolds is in no danger of missing the opening round of the season against the Roosters despite being left out of the Rabbitohs squad for the Charity Shield clash on Saturday.

    Reynolds continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury suffered late in the 2018 season and needs further contact work before the round one blockbuster.

    Rabbitohs skipper Greg Inglis has also been left out for the pre-season fixture in Mudgee as he continues rehabilitation on a lingering knee issue.

    Casualty Ward: Manly lose Trbojevic for first two rounds

    NRL.com
    Wed 6 Mar 2019, 12:11 PM


    The Manly Sea Eagles have suffered a big blow ahead of their season opener against Wests Tigers with fullback Tom Trbojevic set to miss two games with a hamstring injury.

    The 22-year-old suffered the injury in the trial game against Cronulla two weeks ago and his absence will force coach Des Hasler into a major backline reshuffle for the first-up trip to Leichhardt Oval.

    The Eagles said the NSW Origin star is looking to return for the round three clash with the Warriors in Christchurch.

    Meanwhile, Manu Ma'u's terrible luck with injuries has continued with the Eels back-rower suffering medial ligament damage in the side's trial win over Penrith on the weekend.

    Parramatta coach Brad Arthur told Inside the NRL on Monday that Ma'u was aiming for a return to the side by round six, ruling him out for at least the opening month of the season.

    Arthur was hopeful Junior Paulo, who withdrew from the clash with a minor hamstring strain, would recover in time for the start of the season.

    Panthers winger Josh Mansour also sat out the Panthers' final trial against Parramatta after a training mishap earlier in the week caused a cut to his knee that required 10 stiches. He's in no doubt to start in round one.

    "I actually put my hand up to play but being a trial it wasn't worth the risk of infection," Mansour said. "I should get the stiches out in six more days."

    Meanwhile, Wests Tigers veteran Chris Lawrence will fly back to Australia this week after breaking his jaw at training in New Zealand in the lead up to Saturday’s trial against the Warriors.

    Once back in Australia, Lawrence will undergo surgery and faces a lengthy recovery.

    Paul Momirovski (quadriceps) and Elijah Taylor (pectoral) were both rested from the Warriors trial but will be available for round one selection.

    St George Illawarra forward Tyson Frizell will miss up to six weeks after undergoing emergency surgery on Saturday night after rupturing a testicle in the loss to North Queensland.

    Frizell confirmed to NRL.com on Sunday morning that he wasn't expected to return for at least four weeks.

    Frizell's absence will force Dragons coach Paul McGregor into a second reshuffle of his forward pack in as many weeks.

    Meanwhile, Penrith hooker Sione Katoa has been ruled out of Sunday's clash with Parramatta with concussion, while the Eels will be without injured prop Junior Paulo.

    Paulo has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Wayde Egan will start in place of Katoa for Penrith with Jarome Luai joining the interchange.
