Davico out, Perry in

Luke Davico has been ruled out of Friday's Origin trial against City at Gosford after breaking a rib in a rugby league practice match at The Entrance last night.

The Canberra Raiders prop came off the field early in Country's 20 minute practice clash with Jim Beam Cup champions The Tigers. Newcastle's Josh Perry has been called in to replace Davico.

It was the second injury blow delivered to Country since the side was named on Sunday.

Davico's Canberra teammate, winger Joel Monaghan, lasted barely an hour in the side before being ruled out with a calf strain and replaced by Dragons flyer Nathan Blacklock.
