Packer out of Manly game

2:50 pm on 8 June 2013

Injury has ruled the Warriors prop Russell Packer out of tomorrow's home National Rugby League game against Manly.

Packer suffered a sternum injury in the Warriors' big away win over the Brisbane Broncos, the game the prop caused controversy in by urinating on the field beforehand, and earning the Auckland club an $18,000 fine.

Suaia Matagi, who was named on the bench for the Sea Eagles clash, now starts instead.
