Apparently on Tigers website:-

Manly have suffered a fresh injury blow ahead of Saturday night's NRL clash against Wests Tigers with fullback BRETT STEWART rolling his ankle at training this morning.

STEWART left the session immediately to seek treatment on the ankle with coach DES HASLER still unsure about the extent of the injury.

The Sea Eagles are already without centre STEVE MATAI and backrower STEVE MENZIES for the Leichhardt Oval clash, the pair sidelined with ankle and groin injuries respectively.

Halfback MATT ORFORD also failed to train today as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, HASLER to give the Manly skipper until the last minute to prove his fitness.

Oh.....my.....goodness !!!

So, if this is true, Hicks to fullback and Bani to the wing or slot Meaney straight into fullback?

We may end up running half a premier league team on in the second round. What bad luck to start the season.

On the bright side, des will be forced to give the young tallent a go!

Why are the names in caps? Usually that is reserved for radio articles, not stuff that comes off the wire.

Still, it's a worry. Hope it's a fake or at least a minor injury to Brett - he has a history of struggling with injuries that other players would play with, and also a history of taking longer to recover (the diabetes being the big factor there).

Watmough was always going to be back this week, his words. That isn't a paniced reaction, so he'll be fine.

Looks like this site will get it's answer to the depth issue a bit quicker than we all would've liked.

If Orford plays I am not concerned, if he is ruled out then we have problems.
