Penrith Panthers Injuries & News

Obviously the biggest news of Round 1 for the Panthers is Nathan Cleary being ruled out for up to the first three weeks of the year after undergoing shoulder surgery in the off-season.

Sean O’Sullivan steps into the No. 7 jersey to partner Jarome Luai in the halves, with the pair having grown up playing touch footy together at the foot of the mountains.

Matt Burton and Paul Momirovski have both departed the club, along with Brent Naden, meaning the Panthers’ backline looks a little different heading into 2022.

Stephen Crichton returns to the centres alongside young gun Izack Tago, with Charlie Staines and Brian To’o taking their spots on the wing.

Manly Sea Eagles Injuries & News

Big boost for Manly as second-rower Haumole Olakau’atu makes an early return from an elbow injury. It’s a timely return, with Josh Schuster currently sidelined through injury.

Boom rookie Tolutau Koula will make his NRL debut off the interchange, with Dylan Walker out. Toff Sipley starts in the front row alongside Martin Taupau, while superstar fullback Tom Trbojevic lines up at fullback as he looks to replicate his extraordinary Dally M Medal winning season.
