Sea Eagles prop Darcy Lussick is set to return this weekend from an ankle injury.
Lussick suffered a high ankle sprain in the first trial against Cronulla Sharks on February 17 and has been working hard on his rehab with the Manly medical staff.
He has been named as a reserve in the 21-man squad by Coach Trent Barrett for the clash against South Sydney at ANZ Stadium.
Should Lussick not make the final NRL team, he is likely to play for the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in their Intrust Super Premiership match against Newtown on Sunday afternoon at HE Laybutt Field, Blacktown.
Meanwhile, Sea Eagles centre Dylan Walker remains listed for a return from an ankle injury in rounds four or five.
The Dally M Centre of the Year suffered the injury playing for the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII team last September.
