    The rumour mill suggests that the Broncos will demand that Gallop allows Lockyer to play wearing a Gridiron helmet. Expect Gallop to cave in. Like Lockyer's face.......

    I just had a mental image of T-Rex stiff arming Lockyer & Locky's facemask caving his face in. Good times.

    If it is actually a depressed fracture of the cheekbone then he won't play, no matter how much he or the Broncos want him to, just not going to happen. Though as Hoppasgottastay said, we aren't going to know jack until the 11th hour, no point worrying about it.

    There is no doubt he will play injured. They just said on Triple M he should play and that Matty has played with the same sort of injury.

    He risks a bone fragment blinding hìm.

    I think he is so over the hype. Last week's voluntary tackle spoke volumes about his commitment.
    He got them another week, the legal Manly shoulder charges are all that await him now.

    HE has had 3 plates put in his face. If he is allowed to play it is bringing the game into disrepute. I haven't checked all the recent posts but am sure someone has raised this. It is bad luck for Locky, but he knows he's been lucky ebnough to play more games already than any other player.

    I reckon he is 1 milion to one against playing, if they fluke a win he will have to decide again about the GF (and still won't be a chance of playing).

    Didn't Brett Kimmorly play last year for the bulldogs last year or possibly the year before a week after the same kind of injury?

    Let's just hope Manly stay right out of the argument, especially our club doctor. We don't want another "he could die" a la Andrew Johns and his punctured lung in 97. If the Broncos want to take the risk with Lockyer that's up to them.

    We will beat them either way.

    The NRL have a duty of care as his employer. They insist on a break for players who have concussion so why not with broken facial bones. Juat stupid and a blot on the game. Mums wouldn't want to see this.

    Kimmorley had 3 fractures in his cheek bone. Not sure how many Lockyer has or if it makes a difference as to how many weeks they miss.

    Agreed, all we can do is concentrate on what we can control. We have an excellent and very confident team that are more than capable of winning either way.

    Prepare like he is playing, and let the media and the Broncos stress about whether he actually is playing or not.

    Wayne Bennett's comment that the Broncos cannot beat Manly without DL might have been a sly tactic to motivate his old club against us on Friday night. The Bronco players would not have liked hearing it, so it will motivate them to prove him wrong if Lockyer doesn't play. But our side will be too slick I think anyhow. And we are the only Sydney team left!

    If I remember correctly, Tooves played the 96 GF with a similar injury (his was a fractured eye socket and was told he risked being blinded by playing). Despite Mark Coyne trying to whack him in the head with one of his first touches he played a blinder (no pun intended) and won the Clive Churchill Medal. One of the toughest dipslays I've seen.
