Also kafusie the Dolphins elbow won't be playing also.Dolphins Tom Gilbert will be missing for up to 3 months after hurting his shoulder in Origin. The Hammer is not named for this weekend so we'll have to contend with him at least, but Gilbert's absence helps Manly a bit, he's a good player.
If he gets picked for SOO2 then it'll be a 22 day break. 3 weeks off no football.After Turbo slipped taking the kick off in tonight's Origin, he basically camped himself out on the NSW right edge (mostly centre, sometimes wing) for 68 minutes and looked fairly disinterested in doing much more than that, only taking the odd hit up here and there and having nowhere near the involvement that his previous Origins produced. He wasn't moving all that freely behind play either.
So maybe the 11 day break he's going to get might not be a bad thing in that if he did pick up a niggle, he doesn't have to back up this weekend or next as it now turns out. Bummer for us, but he might need it for more than just a head knock.

Only thing was that Koula's was nothing like Fleglers and shouldn't have been a sin bin at all.Fittler will pick him.
Funny thing about Flegler hitting Tom on Wednesday. The same commentators who couldn't believe that he was sent to the bin for that were the same ones who loved that Koula got sent to the bin for exactly the same thing against the Knights just a few days earlier.
I couldn’t see either of them as a bin, penalty sufficent
