Firman out of tonight's clash -
replaced by Byrne

Outgoing Premier League captain, Dean Byrne [pictured] will wear the No.7 jersey following reports that St George Illawarra halfback Brett Firman has pulled out of tonight's round 24 WIN Stadium clash against the Melbourne Storm.

Byrne, who recently agreed to terms with South Sydney for 2004, was a late call-up following news that Firman was out with a hamstring injury.
