"The prognosis isn't so good for Panthers halfback Nathan Cleary with the playmaker unlikely to return against the Roosters on Saturday."
+ this from Wacko's latest article:
"While Cleary is long odds to line up against the Roosters this Saturday, the 23-year-old is now back into serious training, which included a rigorous hit out with the club’s reserve graders on Sunday afternoon.
While Panthers players officially have Monday off, Cleary has asked to be included in an extras tackle session for those players who weren’t used in the team beaten by reigning premiers Melbourne Storm 37-10."
There's also a quote floating around from Ivan saying he would have played last night if it was a finals game. Mixed messages.
Is a last-minute Fog to DCE trade worth it with that news? 6 weeks of DCE vs 4 of Cleary starts to become significant.
