    Just saw some news that both Jake Trbojevic and AFB have withdrawn from the City Origin side. I assume due to injuries. Hopefully not serious ones although Jake has been struggling with a slight knee problem.

    Does anyone have any news ?

          It was to do with the knee for Jake, it was decided it was best he rest it since he has been carrying the niggle through the Manly games.. not sure about AFB

          Don't think its much to worry about, just common sense coming into play and giving them a rest instead of playing a game which means nothing!

            Good. We have enough injuries.

            Last thing we need are more.

              I am sure they withdrew due to confusion, it will clearly be more than a 5 day turn around for them and they wouldn't know where they were at

                I think it is a shame. regardless of my view on the value of the game it remains the first senior representative honors for both young men. I am sure that would mean something to them.

                To go into camp and experience a rep game build up (albeit with Freddy) would have been a valuable learning curve and a confidence boost for both.

                  True. Good experience especially for AFB but if they have niggling injuries manly come first

                    Imagine if Jake had played well in that game? It would give him a big boost for a SOO call-up.

                      I know its used as a trial run for SOO players, but seriously why do they bother with it.

                      No club wants their players in the game for fear of injury, so it becomes a game of a few old guys past their prime and mostly randoms.

                      Gallon, Bird, Pearce, Reynolds, Dugan, etc

                      I can't see Jake's Mommy letting him play with that crowd.

                              I wouldn't be surprised if Jake gets a taste of SOO this year any way.

                                According to one report I read, Jake was the first player to turn up to the team medical. Apparently it was a big let down for him to be ruled out because he was keen to play and impress Laurie Daley.

                                  I prefer our boys playing for Manly - not the rep stuff .hopefully we get back Buhrer next match and fit & healthy rep players.
