Cherry under calf cloud

The Sea Eagles have suffered a setback ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Melbourne Storm, with halfback Daly Cherry-Evans returning from representative duty with a slight calf strain.

The inform half played in the final minutes of the Kangaroos 30-18 victory over the Kiwi’s in Sydney on Friday night after coming off the bench.

His progress will be monitored throughout the week but Sea Eagles Coach Geoff Toovey is still expecting the playmaker to play this weekend against the Melbourne Strom at AAMI Park.

This weekend will be the side’s first trip outside of Sydney this season and with stars Jamie Lyon, Kieran Foran and Glenn Stewart already sidelined, it was not the news Sea Eagles fans wanted to hear.
