Not looking good for Brett to play. MANLY V CRONULLA Sharks five-eighth Todd Carney has aborted his mission to overcome a hamstring strain and is out of Friday’s must-win final. It’s a bitter blow for Cronulla, who will now start the match with Luke Lewis at five-eighth. Rookie half Chad Townsend is expected to force his way onto the bench. Lewis last played in the six jumper in 2011 for Penrith. He has won eight matches in 19 games while playing at pivot. Andrew Fifita (calf and knee) is a certain starter after training strongly during the Sharks closed session at Allianz Stadium on Thursday. Manly have issues of their own with fullback Brett Stewart failing to train on Thursday. He remains in serious doubt after missing the past two weeks with a hamstring injury. Manly have an able replacement in Peter Hiku. Back-rower Richie Fa’aoso has been given a light week after suffering heavy concussion. Coach Geoff Toovey is confident Fa’aoso will be given the green light to take retain his bench spot. Winger David Williams has a back complaint, but he’s expected to push through the pain to take his place in the side.
