Warriors ruled Michael Luck out out of Manly match

11:18 am on 20 March 2009

The Warriors have decided not to risk their experienced loose forward Micheal Luck in Sunday's second-round NRL clash against Manly at Brookvale Oval.

Luck's been undergoing assessment throughout the week after he was knocked out in a heavy tackle by the Parramatta prop Fuifui Moimoi last Saturday night.

The team doctor John Mayhew has recommended Luck isn't fit to play, although he's been experiencing no difficulties since Saturday.

The young front rower Leeson Ah Mau has been brought into the squad in place of Luck, who's missed only two of the club's 78 games since he joined the Warriors in 2006.
