1) Apisai Koroisau (ankle) — TBC

*Api is certain to be an important cog to our 2019 chances and will play a big part when back - straight into the Top 17.

2) Lachlan Croker (hamstring) — Round 15

*Croker has plenty of ground to make up and I feel Cust would need to be injured or play his way out of 5/8, where he has proven a big plus recently....nothing against Croker who looked good also, Cust has simply taken his opportunity well.

3) Trent Hodkinson (knee) — Round 15

*Can't see him considered again in 2019, but an option if needed.

4) Brad Parker (jaw) — Round 18

*Was in great form before injury and will be definately considered....the players right now in the 3/4 line need to continue to play well, as on form Des will have no hesitation throwing Parker straight back in.

5) Toafofoa Sipley (knee) — season

*2020 - Will battle for a bench spot, was solid pre injury

6) Albert Hopoate (knee) — season

*2020 - Hope the kids luck changes, would love to see him get a shot.

If there are no further injuries in the rep games over the weekend, Croker could possibly be selected as bench utility for Round 15. Otherwise, it would be four forwards - Gosiewski, Paseka, Boyle & Waddell.

Edit: In the previous two rounds Elgey & Elliot have been in the final 19, so maybe they would be selected ahead of Croker

Nrl physio posted this !!!

Worst fears confirmed for Api Koroisau with the Manly hooker expected to miss at least 6 weeks after undergoing surgery on a syndesmosis injury late last week. Most in the NRL require 8-10wks recovery, but we have seen returns as soon as 6wks (DCE) under the right circumstances

Very unfortunate api and fainu rotating really gave us energy through the middle !!

Also annoying how the club keeps us fans in the dark about api having his surgery a quick post couldn’t be too hard. Quite confusing on the severity of the injury because manly actually posted an update last week stating:

Scans taken yesterday revealed Koroisau suffered a low ankle sprain in the win over the St George-Illawarra Dragons at Lottoland on Sunday.

He is expected to be out for three to four weeks.
