Cherry-Evans eyes Origin return

NZN 12/05/2016

Manly playmaker Daly Cherry-Evans hopes to launch a last ditch Queensland State of Origin selection campaign in Saturday night's NRL clash with Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium.

Plagued by injury this season, Cherry-Evans says a weekend off due to the representative round has him finally primed to recapture the form that earned him the starting No.7 Queensland jersey in Origin II last year.

"If I can play at a standard that deserves a (Queensland) jersey then I can't wait for that opportunity," Cherry-Evans said.

Meanwhile, Manly have confirmed fullback Brett Stewart and Steve Matai have been ruled out of the Broncos clash due to injury while Tom Trbojevic faces a fitness test on his ankle.
