The Sea Eagles have been forced into a backline reshuffle for their clash against the Panthers with five-eighth Josh Schuster failing to recover from a quad injury.

"We pulled Josh out of training on Wednesday evening, still feeling his quad a little bit, so we won't risk him," Sea Eagles coach Anthony Seibold said on Friday.

"It's been a frustrating start for him, but it's a long year and we didn't want to do any more damage to the injury. If he injures it more it could blow out from a 1-2 week injury to four or five weeks."

Manly will also be without Christian Tuipulotu (knee) and Ben Trbojevic (hamstring), but welcome back star winger Jason Saab, who hasn't played since injuring his ACL in Round 22 last year against the Titans.

Manly Sea Eagles
  • Jason Saab (Knee, Round 6)
  • Josh Schuster (Quad, Round 7-8)
  • Christian Tuipulotu (Knee, Round 9)
  • Tolutau Koula (Knee, Round 9-11)
  • Ben Trbojevic (Hamstring, Round 12)

Also, from the NRL Casualty Ward, Manly hub page, there are slight variations to the information regarding the unavailable or injured players and their return periods:

  • Josh Schuster (Quad, Round 7)
  • Christian Tuipulotu (Knee, Round 9)
  • Tolutau Koula (Knee, Round 10)
  • Ben Trbojevic (Hamstring, Round 12)

At BlueBet Stadium on Saturday night the Sea Eagles lost interchange forward Karl Lawton (shoulder) and winger Reuben Garrick (head knock) during a horror first half in which they conceded 32 points.

Fullback Tom Trbojevic also looked to be struggling in the first half and coach Anthony Seibold told media post-match that the No.1 had been suffering back spasms.

"It was his lower back. He had a needle at half-time and he said he was fine in the second half. Not sure how it occurred or why but it certainly wasn't his hamstring. He's a little bit sore but he's fine."

Manly Sea Eagles
  • Reuben Garrick (Head Knock, TBC)
  • Karl Lawton (Shoulder, TBC)
  • Josh Schuster (Quad, Round 7-8)
  • Christian Tuipulotu (Knee, Round 9)
  • Tolutau Koula (Knee, Round 9-11)
  • Ben Trbojevic (Hamstring, Round 12)

NRL’s mega Casualty Ward laid bare with 52 long-term injuries after six rounds
The NRL has been rocked by a horror injury toll after just six rounds of the season and it threatens to get worse.

Ban the third man in leg drive tackle, outlaw wrestling coaches and eradicate the ugly hip drop.
These are the strong opinions of respected Sydney sports doctor Nathan Gibbs and leading orthopaedic surgeon, Michael Johnson, after being told there have been 22 long-term knee injuries this season.“Being tackled, third man-in around the legs, is normally a recipe for disaster,” Gibbs said. Johnson added: “The hip drop is a tackle I’d like to see out of the game.”

The Daily Telegraph can also reveal the NRL has been dogged with 52 long-term injuries – five weeks or longer - in just six rounds this season. Nine of those have been season-ending.
“Guys are bigger and stronger than ever before and the game is faster than ever with the new rules,” said leading physiotherapist and injury analyst Brien Seeney.


“Anything that adds performance - making guys faster and fitter - will more often than not have a side-effect of more traumatic, explosive injuries.” Wests Tigers star Adam Doueihi sustained a season-ending ACL injury against Parramatta on Monday while Newcastle hooker Jayden Brailey suffered the same unpalatable fate 24 hours earlier against the Warriors. Doueihi has been crippled by ACL injuries twice previously, Brailey once before. While all knee injuries haven’t come from the third man drive, Gibbs – a former South Sydney and Parramatta second-rower – wants the tackle “outlawed”.

“The current tackling technique where players hold up the attacking player to prevent the offload and a third player comes in to take out the legs, to slow down the play-the-ball, is a recipe for disaster for knee injuries,” Gibbs said. “Outlawing the third man-in around the legs would definitely help reduce the risk of lower limb injuries. I would outlaw the tackle. “That tackle can cause ankle syndesmosis, knee MCL and potentially season-ending ACL injuries, not to mention that it can cause fractures as well. “Knee injuries are certainly more common early in the season when players are less match fit and their bodies aren’t conditioned to the actual speed of match play. “This applies to injuries to the ACL where poor co-ordination is a major factor, and also contact injuries where fatigue and poor technique can be a factor.”

Johnson, the former Parramatta Eels doctor, wants the ugly hip drop tackle banished forever.
“If a player (ball carrier) is standing and a player comes from the right side, it can cause a twisting motion to his lower back and also to his knee, which is planted on the ground,” Johnson said.
“In that rotation and twist, that is when you’re likely to do some damage to a cartilage or ligament. A twisting of the lower spine can also cause lower back problems. It could break a leg.”
Johnson added: “The days of wrestling coaches should be over. They should be out of the game because of the damage that has occurred over many years to different players. The chicken wing tackle came in with wrestling coaches.”

Seeney also spoke about the third man in tackle and why so many serious injuries were being suffered this season. “A lot of ankle and knee injuries are the result of a hip-drop, cannon ball and leg drive. The choreography of tackling these days is those first two guys going in up high, holding the player up and slowly everything down,” Seeney said. “And then the third player coming in and going in a bit lower and getting the player to the ground. Often the ball carrier doesn’t have awareness of where that third player is coming from. It is so planned in how they want to get the player to the ground. “I definitely think that has contributed to knee and ankle injuries over the past five to ten years.

SEASON-ENDING INJURIES
Knights: Jayden Brailey (knee)
Panthers: Taylan May (knee)
Sharks: Kade Dykes (knee)
Storm: Dean Ieremia (knee)
Titans: Beau Fermor (knee)
Tigers: Adam Doueihi (knee)
Dragons: Cody Ramsey (illness)
Dragons: Josh Coric (knee)
Warriors: Valingi Kepu (foot)

“In an ideal world I’d love to think there is a way to get rid of it but the hardest part is balancing that performance versus injury risk. It’s a balance between how much does it improve player safety versus how much does it affect the fabric of the game. “I wouldn’t go as far as to say it should be outlawed but there is a way to do that third man in tackle safely but when you get it wrong, then you should be punished significantly.”

Brailey, Doueihi, Taylan May, Kade Dykes, Dean Ieremia, Beau Fermor, Cody Ramsey, Josh Coric and Valingi Kepu have all suffered season-ending injuries, most from knee dramas. “Early season, it is definitely more common to have those explosive, traumatic knee injuries, because guys are coming off pre-season and it takes time for the body to acclimatise back to NRL level football,” Seeney said. “There is also some evidence around about the hardness of the grounds, coming out of summer and the hot months; those hard forces going up through the legs can cause those significant knee injuries. “We commonly do see more ACL’s in the first 10 to 12 weeks as opposed to the rest of the season.” It was initially feared Brailey had injured his meniscus and would be out for six weeks but scans have proven the injury to be considerably worse.

NRL'S KNEE INJURY SCOURGE
Chris Patolo: round 12
Bailey Biondi-Odo: round 21
Harrison Graham: indefinite
Josh Coric: season
Jayden Brailey: season
James Fisher-Harris: round 10

To put those 52 long term injuries into perspective ... that is equivalent to 4 starting 13 teams out each week ... or 3 top 17 teams ...

Superstar fullback Tom Trbojevic has been ruled out of Saturday night's match against the Titans due to an ongoing groin injury.

The Sea Eagles confirmed in a statement the 26-year-old underwent a final fitness test at training on Friday morning but the club has decided to take a conservative approach to ensure Trbojevic is fit to take on the Broncos in Magic Round next week.

The news comes after the club confirmed on Monday that scans had shown only a minor adductor injury. Kaeo Weekes will replace Trbojevic at fullback.

Five-eighth Josh Schuster is looking at possibly another fortnight out after succumbing to another quad injury while Brad Parker (knee) also out for 3-4 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.
