Sisa Waqa has been named in Melbourne Storm’s Round 9 team to take on Manly Sea Eagles this Saturday night at AAMI Park.

After originally being earmarked for minor ankle surgery after the match against the Warriors, it was decided following further consultation and review with the surgeon that surgery was not required until the end of the season.

Waqa has responded extremely well to treatment during the representative bye weekend and has been able to train successfully. He will continue to manage treatment for the rest of the season.

Justin O’Neill underwent a minor ankle arthroscope to remove minor fragments after sustaining an injury against the Warriors on ANZAC Day. He has commenced his rehabilitation program this week and is expected to miss 10-12 weeks.
