    Daly Cherry-Evans has been ruled out of Sunday afternoon’s clash with the Brisbane Broncos, unfortunatley succumbing to a knee injury sustained in Wednesday night’s State of Origin clash at Suncorp.

    The Club has ordered the halfback to spend the next few days resting, before commencing intense rehab in a bid to be fit again to take on the Bulldogs at Brookvale Oval next Friday Night.

    Second rower Anthony Watmough remains hopeful of playing a part this Sunday, despite re-injuring his left arm on Wednesday. He will be given up until kick off to prove his fitness.

    What happened with the calf injury in the Anzac Test?

    We seemed to have moved up Sid's leg, first the knee, then hip problems and now a dickey knee again :huh:

    They should both rest and let the newbies have a taste of a Suncorp win :)

    As HM moved up Sid's leg, all seemed to go dickey at once.

    Is Foz definitely back? As much as I hate injuries. If one of Foz and DCE are available and we can keep giving JLJ extended games, I'm not too upset. This kid is getting some great experience and I like what I'm seeing.

    Plus a rest for DCE wont be a bad thing. (although it will probably be reported that he refuses to play with Choc or Gift). In fact I'm surprised the media haven't said he plays for Qld because he doesn't want to play with them in SOO matches!!

    A lot of people seem to think this game is an easy 2 points regardless if DCE and Choc play.My money would be on the broncos with these guys out.They were very unlucky getting beat on the bell by Bunnies and Roosters.No Choc and no Glen means no mongrel- Chocs presence means so much to this team and my hunch is we will see that Sunday if he is missing.

    Not talking about this case as these guys aren't fit to play but I don't buy all this resting players stuff that some people advocate.People talk as if top 4 is a given.Guess what,it isn't!.If they are fit play them,they are pro athletes.Top 4 is vital and will come down to a couple of points.With our regular injury toll during the year we need all the points on offer.We are a good team but ,unlike plenty of people on here,I don't think we are good enough to leave top players out for a rest,especially given our injury run.They are paid to play,so play them.Our whole club is built on toughness.

    Just watching last night's Footy Show.

    It had a shot of Sid in the dressingroom with icepacks on his right hip and left knee :s So both legs are injured :angel:

    I really hope that Choc is left at home in Sydney, he needs to relax :)

    DCE and Choc should have stayed in Brisbane after the Origin, and kicked on until sunday - they could then meet up with the rest of the team pre-game.

    Agree, my only proviso would be if there exists a risk of doing greater harm.

    Susan I agree
    Not an easy 2 points as most people believe
    Brisbane favourites for mine on Sunday
    Them by 8
    I would happily be proven wrong though:)

    Bongos this year was never going to be easy to beat.

    I think it will be a tough clash anyway. If Foz is fit then we have a fighting chance. We are a strong team and always dig deep when players are out.

    Kingy will bring the mongrel that we will miss with Choc.

    I have to support their decision to rest DCE. We need him next week vs Dogs and its better he rests and improves his chance for recovery.

    Yeah obv they play if fit - and both have played many games already when wounded. No question of either guys' toughness.

    There's no point or need to risk them further on Sunday; and a perfect chance for guys like Jack LJ, TRed, JSL etc to step up and prove their worth right now.

    Every 2 points are vital, but better to gamble on a possible loss now, rather than playing half-fit guys and losing them for longer...OR the rest of the year.

    You watch though...esp with Choc.

    If he can move he'll put his hand up for the fight and run on, on Sunday!

    Can't see Choc explaining his need to stay in Brizbain to The Missus. "There's a Rave Party I simply Must attend - Ok honey ?" :)

    I agree that resting players for the sake of it is not required. But we shouldn't treat a Rd 12 clash with the Broncs as a GF. If Choc, DCE or anyone else is going to do extra damage, or if a week off will most likely take them from 70% fitness to 95% I think it's necessary.

    The other point for me is we can't rely on Choc or Gifts toughness for eternity. These guys have been the lynchpin of this for years. The Horos, T-Reds, JSL need to start bringing this mongrel. And no better way to get them to do it.

    These guys (like JLJ) need an opportunity, and then need to take it with both hands.

    Yeah, it's already been decided mate.

    Tooves named Jack for Cherry.

    And I agree on other guys to step up in the pigs.

    This is the time for a guy like Horo to really show some leadership; not to mention Kingdog, even from the bench.

    Were you drunk-posting again here mate, or having an epiphany of epic proportions?

    Choc and Cherry out; global in extreme doubt!

    Lol.
