Kite to miss Rabbitohs clash

Manly prop Brent Kite is out of Saturday night's qualifying final against South Sydney after suffering a leg injury yesterday.

The Test front rower sustained a tear to his left Adductor muscle in his side's 28-24 win over St George Illawarra at Brookvale Oval and the injury is likely to keep him sidelined for between one to three weeks.

Kite may only miss one match with the injury with the Sea Eagles to receive a week off should they beat the Rabbitohs on Saturday night. City Origin prop Jason King is expected to come into the starting line-up to replace Kite.
