I'm deeply concern about Skivvy. Didn't look good & there were no reports on his condition.
There is not a match goes by without him being injured. I hope he is OK. He's such a fantastic team man. Hope he gets his head scans because he did look concussed. I'm sure hearing the end score will cheer him up.
I've never seen Stevie like that before. Looked in a real bad way. But he'll be right for next week, the trooper!
Hope he is Ok but you can tell everyone loves Skivvy you could hear the whole crowd clap him off when he wobbled off to the sheds
By the looks of it he wont play again this year sickening head clash with the ground same type of thing that kills blokes in the coward punch attacks
He is so hard he knocked himself out. Get well soon Stevie, hated seeing you like that
Why was there a medical report on all other injured players but nothing said about Skivvy. I'm very worried because that usually means it's so bad they can't say.
Matai needs to get a neurological test - he looked white and totally non compos mentis. Hope Manly update the Fans ASAP.
2v in the Presser said that it's just concussion and Matai wanted to get back on Here is the latest news on the injury front from our win over the Warriors today. Forwards Tom Symonds, Luke Burgess and Ligi Sao will undergo scans on Monday to determine the extent of their knee injuries. Centre Steve Matai suffered concussion and will be monitored during the week.
Get well soon Skivvy that was a hell of a hit :/
Me too .....and what made it worse was seeing him struggling so much to walk off. Why couldn't he be carried off?!! Poor Stevie
When you are knocked senseless, it is vital to keep your motor nerves working by moving your limbs, in case you go into a coma. It looks awful but it's life saving - or Matai just refused to be carried off like a girl
Was good in the presser to see Toovey having a laugh about Stevie wanting to come back. Wouldn't expect anything less from the Matai.
Would want to walk off himself (or as much as possible) especially playing in NZ. He wouldn't want his Brother or Parents to see him get carried off. But it's our Skivvy so no surprise the beast!!
I would be resting Stevie this week, he looked very crook, never nice, he also got a head knock last Monday too,
Surely in this day and age he will have the week off to rest up until any swelling has gone down.
If Manly don't rest him this week I think the NRL will step in and insist on it. As much as we need him against bris, his health comes first and he should have a week off. Put your feet up Steve and get yourself right.
Agree. The last player I can recall looking so busted was that young Tiger Dwyer(?) and he turned out to be very seriously hurt. Rest him as long as it takes. Anyway Hiku has done well at left centre and we do have another wing candidate.
According to Richie Barnett on the sidelines, Skivy's eyes were rolling back in his head when he came off. Not good and I'm glad they didn't let him go back on regardless of the fact that players were dropping like flies who just got hit with the Baygon. As much as we would love to have him out there against the Donkey's next week......I think he should have the week off because he knocked himself silly. Play Hiku at left centre and bring Turbo Tom back onto the wing.
He is way down on form. Was the best centre in game early last year.
