General lockyer may not play

Just heard on radio NZ news. Darren Lockyer has been told by his specialist not to play on Friday. Any contact with the head area will break loose screws in his face. He could loose an eye. Lockyer has said he will play, against specialists advice (orders?). Do you think if Manly know this they will target him high? You can do an awful lot of damage to an injury like that without actually making contact with the head:?

The Sea Eagles will look to make things very uncomfortable for Darren all nigth long.

Yeah me too. Eye sight for the next 50 to 60 years vs. winning a semi final. Easy choice for me.

Especially since he's already got a premiership. It'd be a damn shame for him to bow out due to injury, but that's the way the game goes, eh.

I suspect Mr Lockyer has been having his ear severely bent by Mr Ego.

"Darren, what real sportsman wouldn't want to go out in a blaze of glory?
Darren Lockyer, rugby league legend, wins the NRL Premiership with his beloved Brisbane Broncos in his. Very. Last. Ever. GAAAAAMMMEEE!!"

"Never mind the eyesight, you'll be fine!! Hell, if you lose one eye, so what, really??"

This contest is scheduled for one fall, Darren Lockyer versus Mr Ego....

I'll be the first - and most likely last :D - to say I think the Broncos could snatch a win without Lockyer against the Sea Eagles.

Possible scenario - lockyear plays, gets a small hit from matai, slam thaiday rages it and starts an all in brawl, gerald Beale does another muay Thai knee this time to Brett Stewarts face, manly win by a whisker, matai gets suspended, Brett Stewart gets concussed(because you shoudnt wish any serious injuries on any player), watmough gets suspended for his involvement in the fight... Sh1t it could happen, just saying casually. In all honesty though, i prefer to face manly/broncos full strength in the grand final. I'd rather loose a grand final then to beat some team missing their best players. More glory for us if we win, that's just me though

It's not that black and white. They didn't say any contact with the face/head will loosen the screws/plates and you'll go blind. I know it's nice to simplify it like it's the final match in a Hollywood hero sports movie...but it isn't.

Matai was seen at Manly training today doing tackle practice with what appeared to be a screwdriver in his hand.

I am set to believe that he will play in a mask like
Jason of "Friday the 13th" (see image)

In his throaty voice Locky will say "lets do Manly"
& most of the Stewart Family players will run away & hide.

Incl the cherry Boy

I feel for manly. They've got to prove their the villians. Not just pretend to be. Big task to end Lockyers career. With this injury, hes practically on legend status. What are manly made of, really. We're about to find out.

If I was Hasler, I'd send T-Rex at him all day. (Matai would just get himself binned.)

And then I'd rip off a door, just because I can.

Now that's great. All that could possibly happen, but if they play the warriors in the final, you justknow that none of those players will be suspended.

haha I like the ripping off the door bit. I wish I could do that...but I'm afraid it would take me half an hour to find a screw driver....

In another thread, someone said Matai was seen training with a screwdriver, so you could become a door removal combo. Kind of like a tradesman's version of WWF... :tu:

luckily for lockyer , THE GRUB plays for his on team otherwise , when someone eventually does hit lockyer in the face , and hes lying on the ground screaming in pain , THE GRUB cant come running in and crash tackle him ...(around the head)
the fact he didnt get suspeneded for that is unbelieveable...talk about unsportsmanlike conduct NRL ?????????????????????????????????????????????

oh and one more thing , watch the replays of warriors vs tigers , 76 minute . mateo running towards side lines , gets big swinging arm to head from chris heighington right in front of the touch judge..wtf? no penalty ..heightington has not been cited either..
meteo gets up and appeals to touchie who would have been 4 metres away tops..who blankly looks at him and looks away .. are swinging arms to the head legal in semi finals now? lol, or are they only legal ifin you play for the tigers.?
