Storm fullback Billy Slater injured his shoulder against Leeds.

A snapshot at the injury news at all 16 NRL clubs, including a short-term fullback crisis at Melbourne.

Brisbane Broncos

  • Jack Bird (shoulder, round 4)
  • Andre Savelio (knee, season)

Canberra Raiders

  • Josh Hodgson (knee, light running, round 18)

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

No current injury concerns

Cronulla Sharks

  • Ava Seumanufagai (hamstring, round 1)
  • Kyle Flanagan (thumb, round 3)

Gold Coast Titans

  • Jack Stockwell (shoulder, round 3)
  • Jarrod Wallace (groin/shoulder, suspended until round 3)

Manly Sea Eagles

  • Dylan Walker (leg/ankle, round 4/5)
  • Johnathan Wright (finger, indefinite)
  • Darcy Lussick (ankle, round 3)

Darcy Lussick's recovery from a high ankle sprain sustained in the club's first pre-season trial is ahead of schedule and may only see him miss Manly's first two games.

Melbourne Storm

  • Sandor Earl (knee, season)
  • Billy Slater (shoulder, round 2)
  • Jahrome Hughes (shoulder, round 4)

Billy Slater and his back-up fullback Jahrome Hughes are both sidelined with shoulder injuries, forcing a reshuffle for the Storm in round one.

Newcastle Knights

  • Dylan Phythian (ACL, round 6)

North Queensland Cowboys

  • Josh Chudleigh (knee, indefinite)
  • Shaun Fensom (leg, round 2-4)
  • Kane Linnett (pectoral, indefinite)
  • Lachlan Coote (hamstring, round 2)

Parramatta Eels

  • Clint Gutherson (knee, round 8)
  • Tony Williams (knee, round 3)

Parramatta are taking a cautious approach with Clint Gutherson's knee injury, with his return pushed back from round three to round eight by the Eels. Tony Williams is suspended for the opening two rounds but should have recovered from a knee injury once that is served. Marata Niukore is also suspended for round one.

Penrith Panthers

  • Wayde Egan (shoulder, indefinite)
  • Tyrone May (knee, running, round 5)
  • Tyrone Phillips (pectoral, round 14)
  • Dean Whare (hamstring, round 2)

South Sydney Rabbitohs

No current injury concerns

St George Illawarra Dragons

No current injury concerns

Sydney Roosters

  • Luke Keary (broken jaw, round 2)

Luke Keary suffered a broken jaw at training in January and is unlikely to be fit for the club's opening round clash with the Wests Tigers, with Mitch Cornish named to start at five-eighth this week.


  • Gerard Beale (leg, round 8)
  • Agnatius Paasi (shoulder, round 2)
  • Nathaniel Roache (neck, season)
  • Simon Mannering (shoulder, Round 4)

Wests Tigers

  • Jacob Liddle (shoulder,  round 2-3)
