South Sydney has suffered an enormous blow on the eve of its preliminary remaining in opposition to Penrith, with star winger Alex Johnston dominated out with harm.
Johnston, the main try-scorer within the competitors this 12 months, hasn’t recovered from a hip flexor harm suffered within the semi remaining win over Cronulla.
His place will probably be taken by Richie Kennar, who’s performed only one match this season.
“[Johnston] was by no means actually going to be an opportunity to play however we gave him each alternative. If we get the job carried out, he’ll be again subsequent week,” coach Jason Demetriou stated.
MORE TO COME.
