Manly’s worst fears could be realised within the next 24 hours with star fullback Tom Trbojevic set to have scans on a knee injury.
Trbojevic was seen on Sunday morning wearing a knee brace and hobbling after he copped some heavy hits in Saturday’s 25-6 win over the Raiders.
The star fullback and reigning Dally M Medallist was closely marked by the Raiders defence all game.
Despite that, he produced his best game of the season to date, making several breaks and scoring a try.
But Trbojevic was seen limping several times during the game and pulled up sore this morning.
He is expected to go for tests on Monday morning and the entire Manly club will be crossing its fingers that the damage is not serious.
