Round 19 team lists, Tolu Koula injury, Tom Trbojevic position, State of Origin

Manly have been dealt an untimely injury blow, with electric fullback Tolu Koula set to miss the next six weeks after injuring his knee last weekend.

The 21-year-old had scans following his side’s victory over the Cowboys and will undergo surgery on Tuesday night for an MCL injury.

Koula’s absence has led to a major change for the Sea Eagles, with marquee man Tom Trbojevic named at fullback after playing centre in his round 18 return.

Anthony Seibold isn’t short of options, with rookie fullback Lehi Hopoate also in the mix, but the injury to Koula has prompted the coach to move Trbojevic back to his usual role.
