Parramatta players say they have no idea if controversial playmaker Corey Norman will be allowed to play in Saturday’s NRL clash with Gold Coast but they “100 per cent” want him there.
Norman was stood down for Sunday’s loss to Penrith after he pleaded guilty to drug possession and he was expected to front club officials this week to explain his recent actions before a decision was made on his availability.
“He’s our chief playmaker. He’s been our go-to man since he’s been here. Of course we want him out on the field, but if he’s not we’ll deal with it and move on,” Eels back-rower Kenny Edwards said on Tuesday.
