Koroibete set to miss preliminary final

Koroibete set to miss preliminary final

Star winger Marika Koroibete is set to be a late withdrawal from the Melbourne side for their NRL preliminary final against North Queensland on Saturday.

Koroibete suffered a lacerated Achilles two weeks ago in the Storm’s qualifying final win over Sydney Roosters and the injury has been slow to heal.

In his pre-game press conference on Friday, Storm skipper Cameron Smith rated Koroibete a 50/50 chance of playing.

If Koroibete is ruled out, Young Tonumaipea will come onto the left wing for the Storm at AAMI Park.
