The Manly Sea Eagles have named their team to meet the Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs this Sunday at Telstra Stadium. Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler has been forced to make a number of changes with the loss of key players Jason King and John Hopoate.
King has been reportedly ruled out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture of the foot. It is also reported that John Hopoate is out of football for a month and will undergo a rigorous training schedule in a bid to regain his strength and speed following a slow recovery from a broken leg.
Steve Menzies and Shane Dunley are also under an injury cloud with Menzies carrying a hamstring injury and Dunley suffering with rib cartilage damage.
