Manly star Tom Trbojevic has been given approval by the NRL to return this weekend against the Redcliffe Dolphins despite previously being ruled out due to concussion protocols.
Sea Eagles officials and doctors went to the NRL to argue Trbojevic’s case with the NRL green-lighting his comeback.
“Our Chief Club Medical Officer, Dr Paul Bloomfield, agreed that Tom had to be removed from the field but at no point was he diagnosed with concussion,” CEO Tony Mestrov said.
“Furthermore, Tom does not have a history of concussion issues.
“Throughout this process, Tom has not been diagnosed with concussion from either NSW Dr Nathan Gibbs, Dr Bloomfield, or independent doctor, Dr Chris Levi.
“Tom will line up for the Sea Eagles on Friday night.”
