    Mal Meninga says independent NRL doctor, not clubs will decide player withdrawals from Four Nations

    KANGAROOS coach Mal Meninga says decisions on a player’s health will be made by independent doctors rather than NRL clubs to keep Australia’s Four Nations campaign from being marred by player withdrawals.

    Well over a dozen withdrawals from Australia’s 2014 squad saw the credibility of the tournament cop a battering two years ago, with players understood to be increasingly under pressure from their clubs to rest up or undergo elective surgery.

    Already it’s been revealed Manly pair Daly Cherry-Evans and Tom Trbojevic both require ankle operations at the end of the year, while Wests Tigers sensation James Tedesco will also need off-season surgery on a broken nose suffered in Origin.
