When it comes to NRL (National Rugby League), there’s never a shortage of news, especially in the lead-up to games. This week’s Late Mail features a surprising move by Manly and a long-awaited return for the Knights. Let’s dive into the details!
Manly Star Benching
In a surprising move, Manly coach Des Hasler has decided to bench star player Tom Trbojevic for Friday’s game against the Broncos. The reasoning behind the decision hasn’t been made clear, but it’s likely a strategic move on Hasler’s part. “Tom will be playing soon,” Hasler said in a press conference. “But we just felt that this week, this was the best decision for the team.”
This news caused a stir among Manly fans and NRL enthusiasts alike, with many wondering why a team would bench one of their best players. However, as with any coaching decision, only time will tell if it pays off.

Knights’ Long-Awaited Return
On a brighter note, the Knights are set to welcome back star player Kalyn Ponga after a long injury layoff. Ponga has been out of action since August last year due to a shoulder injury, but has since recovered and is ready to take the field once again.
“It’s been a long time coming, and I’m just excited to finally get back out there,” Ponga said in a recent interview. The Knights have struggled without Ponga, with a win-loss record of 3-4 before his injury and 1-6 since then.

In other news, the Roosters have named Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Angus Crichton in their squad for Thursday’s game against the Storm. The Storm, on the other hand, will be without star player Ryan Papenhuyzen due to a concussion.
Meanwhile, the Rabbitohs are set to welcome back Latrell Mitchell after serving a suspension for a high tackle. Mitchell’s return will be a welcome addition for the Rabbitohs, as they aim to bounce back from their loss to the Panthers last week.
