The Parramatta Eels are sweating on the provision of middle Tom Opacic forward of subsequent week’s preliminary last assembly with the North Queensland Cowboys.

Opacic injured his hamstring within the 40-4 win over Canberra on Friday evening, which has opened the door for Bailey Simonsson to make a return to first grade.

Though The Day by day Telegraph’s David Riccio reported on Saturday in an replace on Opacic’s harm that Simonsson should still miss out, with Marata Niukore to as a substitute shift to the facilities.

“I spoke with the Parramatta membership this morning,” he mentioned on Triple M.

“There may be some optimism in relation to the severity of the hamstring difficulty. I believe you’d have to put Opacic in severe doubt to play. We all know hamstring accidents are problematic and going right into a must-win prelim, it is in all probability too massive a threat to take. However, in the event that they had been to advance, I would not rule out Opacic going ahead.

“The choice I am choosing up on is Marata Niukore at this stage shifting into the middle spot, with Waqa Blake staying on the wing. Just a little little bit of water nonetheless to circulate however optimism that past the prelim, Opacic could also be OK.”

Ought to Niukore transfer from the bench to the facilities, Bryce Cartwright or Nathan Brown are the 2 choices to maneuver into the 17.
