Hayne, Peats to return

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

SYDNEY - Parramatta are confident injured stars Jarryd Hayne and Nathan Peats will return for Monday night's NRL clash with Cronulla.

Hayne was ruled out of the Kangaroos line-up for last Friday's Test against New Zealand with a shoulder problem, while Peats was scratched from NSW City's representative clash with NSW Country Origin with an ankle injury.

However, both trained with the squad yesterday ahead of Monday's match against the Sharks at Parramatta Stadium, ensuring they would be named to contest the Johnny Mannah Cup.

Eels prop Tim Mannah has overcome a burst ear drum to take part in the game which honours his late brother, who played 24 games for Cronulla and represented the Parramatta club before he passed away last year.

Mannah is hopeful of signing off on a new deal with Parramatta in the coming days which will ensure he will remain a one-club player.

Centre Will Hopoate sat out training yesterday after starring in NSW City's comeback to draw against Country on Sunday, but he's in no doubt for Monday's match.

Parramatta suffered a humbling 42-14 last-start loss to North Queensland, but could force their way back into the top eight if they can bounce back against the bottom-placed Sharks.

Test and Origin star Hayne is crucial to Parramatta's chances, and Mannah says the fullback will be given up until game day.
