    yeah great

    10 weeks on the sideline

    5 minutes for NSW

    6 weeks injured on the sideline

    Another 5 minutes for NSW and probably get injured again

    Then probably out for the season

    Then becomes T-Dog

    Great stuff!!

    Agreed BE. 3 games and that might be all we see if he injures himself again.

      Surely he is no chance of playing for the Blues unless he makes a comeback this weekend?

      Or: comes through soo 3 unscathed and a winner.

      Has a blistering end to the 2012 season, and leaves as a 2 times premiership winner for MANLY!

      Then: does a knee in preseason.

      It's not like he was a Manly junior. He did the same thing to Parramatta. Great player, but I'd rather players who want to play here. Players like Jamie Buhrer, Steve Matai and Matt Ballin.

      Well said Bones! Local juniors like Will Hoppa & Lussick who leave (not unwanted) hurts me more than guys like T-Dog (Cabramatta junior) departing. Let's also not forget that Manly wasn't offering T-Dog peanuts to stay.

      Toovey is aware of the Blues' desire to have Williams in their ranks at Suncorp Stadium but said the player's recovery was paramount.
      ''I wouldn't put any player at risk just because of State of Origin,'' he said.

      T-Rex told to prove Origin readiness with Manly

      TONY WILLIAMS has been told he must feature for Manly this weekend to be picked for the State of Origin decider but is caught in a wrangle over club and state priorities after the Sea Eagles insisted it was too risky to play him on Sunday.

      NSW coach Ricky Stuart said last night that the injured Manly back-rower needs to play against Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium on Sunday to be considered for Origin III at Suncorp Stadium on July 4.

        I'd rather we get 1 game out of him when we need him rather than he plays SOO and injures himself in that game

        Players coming back after a concussion and the adage that 'Clubs demand their players return to the field asap'. The Clubs aren't taking the health of the player into consideration.

        T-Rex injures his back and Stuart demands he plays vs the Chooks to be in the frame for selection.
        Manly says No. Horror! This is Manly up to their tricks thinking Club comes first! Forget about the health and well-being of the player concerned.

        I'd love to see Tony playing against the Chooks but not if it means another six weeks on the recovery bench.
        SOO? No way.

        He cost us plenty - we gotta have some value for his games.

        Who has the final say on his fitness, Manly or Ricky Stuart?
        Can the club refuse to release a player due to fitness concerns, or can this be overruled?

        A club can't rule a player out of origin. If they pick him it will be up to the NSW doctor to rule him out. If the club says he isn't right to play and doesn't front up he will be suspended from playing that weekend anyway. I suppose the interesting thing here is we have the bye that weekend which is a bit unprecedented in this type of scenario.

        Surely Rex with a back injury, would need to be in some kind of condition just to be able to last a club game especially that big a bloke. When T-rex got suspended, Donny Singe smashed him on the training paddock. This back injury would probably have meant that he would not have been able to keep up with training and may need a month or so to get back to peak game condition. How would he would be ready for Origin less than 2 weeks away without a game under his belt since Round 3?!?!
