RULED OUT | Paul Gallen out injured

Sharks Captain Paul Gallen has been ruled out of tomorrow’s match against the Cowboys and did not travel to Townsville with the team today.

Gallen failed to fully recover from a rib cartilage injury sustained while playing for NSW in State of Origin Two in Melbourne just over two weeks ago.

Head Coach Shane Flanagan said: “Gal trained well on Wednesday night and did nearly everything bar the contact and just probably fell a little short.

“Maybe another day or two and he may have gotten there but we had to make a decision on that and we made that yesterday.”
