NRL: Storm wait on Grant injury news

Melbourne Storm are sweating over the fitness of Harry Grant after the star hooker had to leave training early due to a groin issue.

The Storm are priced at 1/5 to beat Manly on Thursday night and now there is a question mark over whether Grant will be fit enough to take his place in the side.

Injury issues for Storm

The Storm have a number of key players missing already, including Jahrome Hughes and Ryan Papenhuyzen so the last thing they need is a problem with Grant.

By the way coach Craig Bellamy was talking the injury does not sound a serious one but it is still a concern nonetheless.

"I'm not exactly sure what he's done but he felt a bit of tightness," Bellamy told reporters. "I haven't spoken to anyone yet but I think he's OK."

There is some good news though as Hughes looks set to return after missing the last two games through injury. The Storm lost both games and it is no coincidence that Hughes was missing.

"(Hughes) hasn't done all that we've done this week but he got through most of it and seems to have come through OK so he should be right," Bellamy added.

Manly threat

The Sea Eagles will be missing star man Tom Trbojevic through injury but Bellamy says they will still be a huge threat on Friday night.

"They've had an up and down season but they were very unlucky not to get a win last week," Bellamy said. "There's some real competitors in that team and obviously losing Tom, he's such a great player and has had such a tough run, but I think (Reuben) Garrick can do the job."
