Pledger to sit out Sydney trip

11:20 am on 28 December 2013

Breakers centre Alex Pledger will miss the team's road trip to Sydney this weekend, after spraining his left ankle at practice on Thursday.

The club's starting big man rolled the ankle during scrimmage as the team prepares for the first of 4 consecutive away games over the holiday season.

Gary Wilkinson is the logical replacement for the first of what looms as a make or break series for the three-time defending champions, who are bottom of the ladder with a four-win, nine-loss record.
