All Stars Injury round up

Several All Stars players are licking their wounds after Saturday night’s brutal clash at Skilled Park, with Canberra forward Joel Thompson in doubt for the start of the NRL season with both rib cartilage and a hip flexor complaint. Manly’s George Rose was sporting a busted nose after a head clash with Thompson, while Melbourne Storm recruit Beau Champion was still seeing stars after being knocked out trying to tackle Petero Civoniceva. Meanwhile, Jharal Yow Yeh was feeling the effects of an accidental elbow from Canterbury-Bankstown hooker Michael Ennis. “Obviously Beau, not in great shape, Georgie Rose, I couldn’t look at him at three-quarter time, I had to turn around,” Indigenous All Stars coach Laurie Daley said after the match. “He was busted and bleeding but he’s quite tough. I said to him ‘you don’t have to go back on’ but he said ‘I want to go back on’. Continue reading

Nick Kenny is a late withdrawal

Brisbane’s forward muscle has taken a late hit, with prop Nick Kenny breaking down at training on Saturday morning. It’s the second week in a row Kenny has been ruled out late, following his withdrawal from the Dragons’ game the previous weekend. While goal-kicking lock Corey Parker and winger Jharal Yow Yeh confirmed their starting spots, Kenny limped from the field midway through the final training session with a calf muscle injury, ahead of Sunday’s clash with the Sharks. Parker will come into the starting pack with either Lagi Setu or Alex Glenn dropping to the bench. Kenny, who had been struggling to play with a lower back injury, was disappointed to be ruled out. “He popped a calf out there, so he’s out,” said Henjak. “It’s only just happened, I don’t know how bad it is. “He hadn’t trained with us much all week, so we’re going with the side that trained all week. We should be able to handle it.”

Henjack wields the discipline axe

Bronco’s pair Ben Te’o and Antonio Winterstein were axed yesterday for disciplinary reasons. Enraged Brisbane coach Ivan Henjak sent the duo packing just days shy of Friday night’s acid test against the Dragons in Wollongong. Te’o and Winterstein will play for Wynnum Manly and Easts respectively on Sunday after both arrived late to training. Youngsters Josh Hoffman and Dale Copley are set to join the NRL ranks. Last night Te’o declined to comment on the incident, while Winterstein was unable to be contacted. It will be the first Broncos match Winterstein has missed since his NRL debut with the club in round 1 last year. The discipline breach could not have come at a worse time for the battling Broncos who already have Israel Folau, Justin Hodges, Corey Parker and Jharal Yow Yeh sidelined through injury.
