CM – Injury blow to Origin veteran


It was announced on Friday evening that the Sea Eagles’ forward would not be available for the second game of this year’s triptych, paving the way for Angus Crichton to return to the starting XI.

Crichton missed the start of the series due to a suspension and after the Blues overran their interstate rivals in Game One, pundits wondered if the crew should be changed to bring the rooster back.

Liam Martin has been touted as the man likely to be out should Crichton return , but they both now have a chance to hit the field in game two.

Trbojevic hasn’t missed a single Origin game since its debut in the series kick-off in 2017.

He played in the front row in Game One, having previously started off the bench and stalled in his 13-game Origin career.

It remains to be seen how NSW trainer Brad Fittler will be Recomposed for the second game to be unveiled this Sunday.

The coach’s philosophy of playing players out of position paid off in the first game, with Latrell Mitchell, Cameron Murray and both Jake and Tom Trbojevic shining in roles other than club level.

The rivals The blues from the north of the Tweed are not without their own injury concerns for game two.

After full-back Kalyn Ponga had already missed the start of the series due to a groin injury, he will also sit out in the following game.

In the expectation that he could have been fit for Game One, the Maroons Ponga flew to their camp in Queensland – a move Ponga’s club-level coach Adam O’Brien admitted may have delayed his recovery.

« In retrospect, I think his best chance to play Game II would have been to stay here and continue working with the group who works with him. « 

Maroon’s prop master Christian Welch, who was head hit in Game One, is expected to compete for the second game in the series.
