From the Manly Sea Eagles website, here is the ' Rd 11 Sea Eagles Injury Report' released on Tuesday 21 May 2024:

Matthew Lodge underwent surgery today for a bicep repair. He is expected to return to play 12 weeks post surgery.

Lachlan Croker (Rd 9 vs Canberra) has an associated neck injury from the original concussion that is not conducive to a safe return at this stage.

Tom Trbojevic (Rd 10 vs Dolphins) has commenced rehab on field and in the gym for his hamstring injury.

From the 'NRL Casualty Ward - All the Latest Injury News, Updates & Returns Details' web page, Here is the Latest NRL Injured or Unavailable Update:

* * * (Updated: Thursday, 23 May 2024) * * *

The Sea Eagles have been given a boost ahead of their clash with Melbourne after winger Jason Saab was named to return from a shoulder injury a week earlier than expected and Nathan Brown returning from a quad injury.

However, forward Matt Lodge will spend the next 12 weeks on the sideline after undergoing surgery on a bicep injury he suffered against the Broncos on Friday, while Lachlan Croker remains sidelined with an inner ear issue which is effecting his balance and Tolu Koula was a late withdrawal for Round 12 due to a shoulder injury.

Manly Sea Eagles
  • Tolutau Koula (Shoulder, TBC)
  • Nathan Brown (Quad, Round 12)
  • Jason Saab (Shoulder, Round 12)
  • Lachlan Croker (Neck, TBC)
  • Tom Trbojevic (Hamstring, Round 18)
  • Matt Lodge (Bicep, Round 24)

Also, from the NRL Casualty Ward, Manly hub page, there are slight variations to the information regarding the unavailable or injured players and their return periods:
  • Jason Saab (Shoulder, Round 14)
  • Tom Trbojevic (Hamstring, Round 18)
  • Matt Lodge (Bicep, Round 24)
  • Lachlan Croker (Neck, TBC)
  • Tolutau Koula (Shoulder, TBC)

We can win this one if we played like we did for the last 68 minutes last night, especially with Brown and Croker (can’t believe I’m saying that) back and at a packed Brooky. Unfortunately it will probably be like most games this year where 10-20 minutes of poor play cost us the game

Crazy that we’ve been to Vegas, NZ, GC, and spent the last 2 weeks in Brisbane and still haven’t had a bye. We desperately need one and it would be much nicer going into it with a big win over Melbourne rather than 4 straight losses

Good chance Nelson will also be suspended. It’s a kitchen sink game for Manly I think we will win it


This is our season on the line. We need to win about 8 from next 13 games to just scrape into the 8. We can’t afford any more losses
