Late Mail, Round 11, Changes, Pros & Cons, Injuries, Spencer Leniu, Liam Martin, Panthers, Josh Addo-Carr, Bulldogs, Josh Schuster, Sea Eagles
The Penrith Panthers have lost Spencer Leniu and are forcing a reshuffle in their clash with the Roosters while Liam Martin is looking to return from a hamstring injury.
Bulldogs superstar Josh Addo-Carr’s return to rugby league has been delayed, dealing a serious blow to his hopes of pushing his way back into Origin competition.
Accordingly channel 7 Michelle Bishop, Addo-Carr “didn’t get through today’s session as planned” and “just didn’t feel ready.”
Bishop, however, claimed Addo-Carr “didn’t get injured again,” which is a encouraging sign for Bulldogs and Blues fans.
It’s a cruel turn of events for the Panthers, especially given Leniu’s move to the Bondi-based club next season.
